Over the course period you will write one paper.
Your first assignment for this writing project is to pick a topic: Decide on a topic to write a paper on.
Ideally you should pick something highly relevant, e.g. topic you'd like to explore, something you are actually working on, proposed thesis topic, etc.), so that you are not simply writing a “hypothetical paper”.
(In general, you will learn better if the homework you do is somehow relevant to your proximal thoughts and actions, rather than some distant time, past or future. This goes for any and all learning, by the way!)
The teacher will will help you pick the best available topic (the topic must be approved by the teacher – not all topics are equally well suited for the purpose of learning how to write scientific papers). Discuss your ideas with your instructor (e.g. via email [ thorisson - at - gmail dot com ]).
When your topic is fixed you need to find a title for your paper. The title should be as descriptive as possible and as short as possible. The teacher can help you with this too, if you wish.
PLEASE PUT “REM4” IN THE TITLE OF YOUR EMAIL, SO IT GETS CLASSIFIED CORRECTLY IN THE TEACHER'S INBOX. Thanks.
