A. Compose an appropriate, arguable thesis statement that previews two to four main points in bold print.
B. Create an annotated bibliography of 10 credible sources that you plan to use in your research paper.
1. Provide a full, APA-formatted reference citation for each source.
2. Provide an annotation (suggested length of 150 words) for each source that includes the following:
a. a summary of the information presented in the source
b. an analysis of the credibility of each source�s author or publication, if no author is present
c. an analysis of the relevance of each source to your chosen topic
3. Provide an annotation that is written in your own words, without the excessive use of direct quotation or extensive paraphrasing, for each source from part B.
Writing a research paper gives you an opportunity to explore a topic of special interest, research that topic, and organize your research findings in writing for an academic audience.
Through your preparation work, you have established an argumentative thesis statement and have planned a clear organization of your main points. Your research is complete, and the details are integrated into your writing plan. You have pulled it all together in a draft and have revised the papers organization, ideas, and words.
In this task, you will write the final draft of your paper. Aim for a polished, error-free submission. The writing tone for your research paper should be formal and appropriate for academic writing. The information in the essay should be based on credible source material.
The paper must follow APA documentation guidelines, and must include an APA-formatted reference list, not your annotated bibliography from Task 1. Any sources that you cite in the paper must be included in the reference list, and any source in the reference list must also be cited within your paper. Please see Appendix B in the learning resource for directions on creating an APA-formatted reference list.
Note: An abstract is not required for this task, but including a title page is recommended.
A. Write a cohesive, argumentative research paper (suggested length of 10-15 pages) in which you do the following:
1. Provide an effective introduction.
2. Provide an appropriate thesis statement that previews two to four main points.
3. Develop each of the main points in effective paragraphs with support from a variety of sources.
4. Provide an effective conclusion.
B. Include at least 7 academically credible sources in your essay
