Project #52098 - Research Proposal and Annotated Bibliography

Research Proposal and Annotated Bibliography Paper 4 Page Requirements 5-7 pages total (Research Proposal: 2 pages; Annotated Bibliography: 3-5 pages) Number of Outside Sources for Paper 4 You will need to find at least five reputable research sources. Paper 4 Format Guidelines The usual applies: include an accurate MLA heading (student name, instructor name, course, and date) and header (student last name and page number), and use 1” margins and Times New Roman 12-point font, with double-spacing throughout. Furthermore, each section of your research proposal should begin with a clear, relevant heading. Within each section, use proper paragraph style. On the next page you will find an example of how the essay should be formatted, including what information you must provide in each section. A sample research proposal can be found on Angel. Section 1. Presentation of the Idea Identify and explain the general, broad idea that is of interest to you. Look at it from numerous angles. Include a brief discussion of your interest in the topic, your experiential or personal connections to the topic, what you already know about it, and the questions and concerns you might have about the topic. Section 2. The Critical Importance of the Idea Imagine and identify specific populations/groups of people that might be affected or touched by the idea. Identify the moral, social, economic, or cultural stakes involved for these groups. Why would these people care about the topic? What conversations are already going on about your topic? What are others saying? What thoughts do they have that are similar to or different from yours? Section 3. Connections to other Ideas Identify various interesting new topics and questions that might be generated as you search for research sources. Consider how these topics and questions could connect to and enrich your examination of the chosen topic. Think creatively here about the obvious and the not-so-obvious ideas. Section 4. Research Plans Identify the gaps in your research. Present possible avenues of research that you would like to explore: what you still want or need to know; what concerns you may still have. Determine the value and effectiveness of your completed research (the new ideas you have, based on the research you’ve done). Also, identify potential counterarguments posed by and potential connections of the discovered sources. Section 5. Identification of the Research Question Provide, explain, and justify your finally formed research question. Section 6. Annotated Bibliography An annotated bibliography is a list of sources plus a brief explanation of each source. The annotated bibliography should help you move from a general research question/topic to a tentative thesis statement for Paper 5. A sample annotated bib entry can be found on Angel. For the annotated bibliography: 1. For each reference you’ve located so far, provide: • A complete, accurate MLA works-cited entry for the source. • A summary of the source’s main claims. • A brief explanation of the source’s connection/value to your research topic. [At least 5 sources are required] 2. End the annotated bibliography by stating your tentative thesis for Paper 5.
