The start of a new semester means the start of new projects. The beginning of my second semester in graduate school also saw the start of the largest project in my academic career so far. I am currently enrolled in the course HIST 6993, which consists of the completion of my overall research paper for my program area of History Education. At the moment I am full of mixed feelings, being both excited to tackle this new challenge and admittedly terrified of the vast amount of work involved. Nevertheless, the process must begin.
My blog posts for this semester will follow the course of researching, writing, and (fingers crossed) completion of my research paper. I look forward to sharing my experience with you throughout this process. More importantly, however, I hope to this will allow me the opportunity to gain insight into my research and become a better writer, historian, and teacher.
