Case study why: to understand one element of full, or what Brené Brown calls, whole hearted living.
1. Construct your hypothesis. What do you want to know more about what it takes to live whole heartedly?
2. Construct your interview questions: what do you want to know in order to understand and answer your hypothesis?
3. Conduct your interview and observation: ask others what they think about your subject
4. Study your subject’s answers and your observations and construct your answer
5. Write your thesis
6. Write your paper
7. Create a five minute presentation to share what you found with the class. (You will present to the whole class) Think about how speakers at Ted present their findings, this is what you are going to do. A practiced, researched, and engaging presentation in which you are expert in your subject.

1. Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain.
2. Write arguments in a variety of forms (Arguments, narratives, and expository) to support claims in an analysis of substantive topics or texts, using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence.
3. Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
4. Gather relevant information from multiple authoritative print and digital sources, using advanced searches effectively; assess the strengths and limitations of each source in terms of the task, purpose, and audience; integrate information into the text selectively to maintain the flow of ideas, avoiding plagiarism and overreliance on any one source and following a standard format for citation.
