Supplemental Exercises and Activities for the Research Summary Project The following exercises will help students develop the discrete skills needed to write about applied research. It is advised that students complete these exercises in the order listed below.
Another way to have students work more with applied research is by asking them to look at sample reports. The following exercises consider research as it is embedded in reports.
Sometimes students need to practice conducting primary research, but it’s not necessarily feasible. This exercise helps students better understand different ways of conducting primary research online.
In addition to the above activities, if you’re not teaching some version of the Resume or Cover Letter Project, you might be able to adopt any of the job market research activities to fit this project in a way that’s beneficial to your students.
