The paper is a research paper focused on your field of study—the academic disciplinary
discourse community of your major. It will include library research and research of data
you collect about the field itself. Throughout, you will study what you’re learning about
the field in your major or area of professional interest—two articles on the field that you
will find through library research and the field itself, by either interviewing someone in
the field, visiting a job site, or some other method you may propose. The study will
culminate in a 7 to an 8-page research paper, complete with introduction, methodology,
results/analysis, discussion, conclusion, and bibliography (references/work cited).
I ordered 8 pages. 7 pages will be the research paper
One page will be a journal about class observation ( any OT class you observed and
record some of what was discussed and how the class went)
