Notice: Purpose

What 1-2 sentences would you underline in the  research writing you are annotating that suggests to you this is the big idea, the purpose behind this scholarship?

Where in research writing do you look for purpose? How is purpose layered and complex beyond the “thesis’? What’s the goal of the research?  What is the scope of this problem? Is it an appropriate “bite’ to chew for the length of the discussion?  After reading the introduction, can you say back in straightforward terms what problem the writing is engaged in? What is the article’s contribution?  This may be the thesis — depending on the genre of the writing, the purpose may or may not be a clear statement.
