This project involved research, making an argument, and outlining a draft. The focus of my research was to understand why there aren’t many female train conductors. Ideally, picking a better person/group to work with would have been better. Researching the person/group before I chose one would have helped because I found it difficult to find a variety of sources on train conductors. I learned that planning is a vital key in my writing. Jotting down key elements in each paragraph helps a lot. Overall, I’d say that with better planning and more research, the research proposal could have been better.
