A2: Research Log 2: Expanding the Conversation 5% of Total Course Grade | Unit 2: Academic Inquiry and Research

Due: October 2 at 11:59pm via Canvas

Background: The Research Logs are both a tool for researchers to track and synthesize research, as well as an important part of the inquiry and research process. Each Research Log will follow the conversation model, which reflects the natural inquiry and research process that most professional and academic researchers follow:

● Log 1: Listening to the Conversation ● Log 2: Expanding the Conversation

Log 2 Purpose: The purpose of Research Log 2 is to start asking new questions about your focused, specific issue you settled on after the first Research Log. During this phase of the research process, you will seek multiple perspectives to try to understand a variety of perspectives, learn what has and has not worked in the past to solve the problem, or what complicates the answers to your inquiry question.

● Your end goal will be to discover the perspectives of a variety of stakeholders through the many questions you will ask. By the end of Log 2 you should feel you’ve heard from many different and sometimes opposing points of view and have worked to understand those perspectives

Audience: Your primary audience will be your CO150 peers and yourself. I will be your secondary audience.

Genre: The Research Portfolio is an academic tool and will therefore include specific academic expectations for research, including MLA citations, synthesis, and summary.

Requirements: Sources for Research Log 2 should help you understand the opinions, concerns, or beliefs of the various people and groups involved in your focused, specific issue. Therefore, some purely informative articles may not work well for this assignment. Hold on to those informative sources, however, as they may be helpful later. For this second log, you will need to have at least two scholarly sources.

Submit one document that includes the following:

● Citation: An MLA citation of the source ● Rhetorical Précis: This is a specific, 4-sentence summary of your source. Please see

instructions on Canvas for how to do this. ● Repeat for each of your three sources

When you are finished with all three citations and their rhetorical précis, complete the Source Discussion at the end of the document, including:

● A 250-300 word discussion, with use of author tags, of your findings thus far. Include the following in your writing:

o What stakeholder perspectives have you learned about so far? What stake do these people/groups have in this issue? Who is missing from the conversation?

o Where do you see overlap in opinions/concerns/values between these stakeholders? In other words, what common ground do you see among the perspectives you’ve gathered? Do you share any common ground with these people?

o Where do the perspectives differ? In other words, what differences are there between opinions, concerns, or what the groups have at stake with this issue? How do you differ in perspective from these groups?

o What questions do you have about any of the stakeholders’ points of view? What would you like to learn more about from these groups?

Include the CSU Honor Pledge at the end of the document: “I have not given, received, or used any unauthorized assistance on my writing project.”

Source Variety & Relevance

Sources seek a variety of perspectives and include at least two scholarly sources. Sources seek to answer a focused research question. Sources are credible, current, and relevant.

Sources may need more variety in either type or perspective. Sources may not meet requirements. Sources may need more focus around the research question. Some sources may not be credible, current, or relevant.

Sources may focus on one perspective only or may only use popular sources (when scholarly is necessary). Most sources may lack credibility, currency, or relevance.

Source Discussion

Discussion is 250-300 words and answers each of the questions in depth and with care. Researcher demonstrates a strong understanding of the conversation, uses author tags to reference source, and is aware of what is missing from the conversation to warrant further research.

Discussion may not meet requirements, not address all of the questions, or may not be developed fully. Author tags may be vague or missing. Researcher may demonstrate some misunderstanding of the conversation or what further research is needed.

Discussion may not address the questions or may demonstrate a misunderstanding of the purpose of the assignment.

Impact of Veganism

 

In the article ” The 14 things you need to know before you go vegan” (2019), Sirin Kale argues veganism has environmental, health, and ethical benefits. Sirin uses various expert advice like Katy Beskow, an author of three bestselling cookbooks and a long-time vegan, Henry Firth, and Isa Chandra Moskowitz, author, and columnist, among other experts, to show how one can go by to be vegan and why it’s the right thing to do. The author’s purpose is to point out the advantages of going began, its benefits, and how to transition from a meat eater to a total Vegan. Due to the informative nature of the article, it seems to be directed to the general public and those interested in going vegan.

In the journal “Effects of Vegetarian Diets on Blood Lipids: A Systematic Review and Meta- Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials” (2015), Wang F., Zheng J., Yang B., Jiang J.,

 

 

Fu Y., and Li D. argue that there is evidence to support the claim that vegetarian diets effectively reduce blood levels of total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol. They used systematic review and meta-analysis to support their claim. Through March 2015, they searched PubMed, Scopus, Embase, ISI Web of Knowledge, and the Cochrane Library for papers that discussed how vegetarian diets affected blood lipids. The purpose of this journal was to prove that vegan diets are effective at lowering the concentration of blood lipids and how they can be used as non-pharmaceutical means of handling dyslipidemia, specifically hypercholesterolemia. With the technical language used in the journal, the authors are writing to a well-educated audience with some knowledge of biology and nutrition.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the article “8 Vegan Diet Dangers (& How to avoid them)” (2022), Carrie Forrest highlights the hazards and health risks that a plant-based diet may bring about and how to counter these effects. Carrie uses her experience and scientific studies data to prove how a vegan diet can lead to deficiencies of vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients and increase some nutrients that lead to potential health dangers. The author’s purpose is to refute the fallacy that a vegan diet is the healthiest and most suitable for everyone and to offer a solution to some of the risks of going completely vegan. Because of the informative nature of her essay, it seems to be directed to an audience with little to no knowledge of the adverse side effects of going completely vegan.
