Meeting the New College Composition II Course Goals through Original Research
ARTICLE

Inquiry Volume 12, Number 1,

Abstract

In a College Composition II (ENG 112) class offered during the spring of 2005 at John Tyler Community College (JTCC), the author implemented an information-literacy curriculum whose salient features include: students collaborated on a semester-long, original-research project. The Metro Richmond Supermarket Price Comparison provided a focused, achievable project relevant to JTCC's service area. The ENG 112 supermarket research project would investigate a topic that had plenty of background research, that required original primary research (most especially in gathering data for a current price comparison), and that would be of interest and service to the community. This article describes the Metro Richmond Supermarket Price Comparison, an original team-research project designed to achieve ENG 112 course goals.
