IND 101 M5.3 Course Project
In the last four modules, you have completed important steps toward building your final research paper and received feedback from your instructor to help you make changes and improve. Feedback is essential to the writing process; the more eyes on your work, the better it can become. So this week, you will submit your Milestone 5 assignment so that both your instructor and a peer reviewer can give you their feedback in Module 6. In turn, you will also review another student’s work in Module 6.
Begin by reading pages 5.8 through 5.11 in the webtext and then compile the submission components below in the Milestone 5 Template.
For this assignment, you will draft the introduction for your final paper. First, review the following resources on creating an effective introduction: and
Your introduction paragraph should be approximately 150-200 words. It should:
Once you have drafted your introduction paragraph, below it in the same document you will compose an outline of the body paragraphs and conclusion of your paper. First, review the following resource on outlines: .
Your outline should include at least 3 body paragraphs supporting your thesis statement, 1 body paragraph to refute opposing perspectives, and a conclusion that reiterates your thesis statement. Each body paragraph should include 1-2 supporting details with the source or sources you plan to use as evidence for that detail. This way you will determine if you have enough evidence for your points, which will make it much easier to draft your full paper in the coming weeks or find additional sources if necessary.
Follow the format in the to make sure your outline includes the necessary components.
Since you are including source information in your outline, you need to include a list of references at the end for all of your sources. This should be formatted in APA style, just as you did last week for Milestone 4. If your instructor offered corrections and feedback on your Milestone 4 references, make sure to make those changes before submitting Milestone 5.
Your final submission should include:
Put all of these components into one document using the Milestone 5 Template and submit it to the dropbox by Sunday of Module 5.
Peer Review in Module 6: Once the due date for this assignment has passed, your assignment will be automatically sent to a peer for their review in Module 6 (and you will receive another student’s work to review). Please aim to submit Milestone 5 on time. If your submission is late, your instructor will need to manually assign you a peer review and your feedback may be delayed. See Milestone 6 in Module 6 for further directions on the peer-review process.
