Create a Twine for your research topic. Bookmarks the lens in your Delicious account and subscribe to its RSS feed on your Protopage. The Twine must include a minimum of 15 items.
For help in creating the Twine, use the Twine Help pages or watch these videos.
When you have completed the assignment, e-mail the instructor at the address in the syllabus the web address for your Twine.
You may earn up to 25 points for this extra credit assignment.
Following the instructions and examples on pages 395-396 in your textbook and in “Developing an Outline,” create a formal outline for your argumentative paper based on the argument you constructed for Research Journal Assignment #10. The outline should include at least three levels of detail (Roman numbers, capital letters, and Arabic numerals) and as many sections as needed.
You may use the template provided on the Files page on the class wiki (ENG 1020, ENG 122).
Remember that an outline is a plan that can be changed. Right now I want to know what your plan is for your paper, but I realize that when you start writing, you may change the plan.

Post twice in your blog (research journal), using the numbers and phrases in bold as the titles of your posts:

If you need to, continue searching for reference works, books, and periodical articles on your topic. Update the appropriate posts on your blog if you find more sources. Don’t forget to bookmark relevant sites in your Delicious account and add any relevant RSS feeds to your Protopage.
