Final Paper Outline And Annotated Bibliography

1) Outline: Your outline should be detailed enough to show the development of your topic,  including bullets for the introduction, supporting points for at least four body paragraphs of the paper, and your conclusion. Your proposed thesis statement should appear under the introduction heading. Your  outline should be approximately ½ to 1 page long in  outline format with headings and subheadings organized by body paragraphs that build on your thesis statement. It should not be written  in paragraph format. For information on how to create an effective  outline see the resources below:

2) Annotated Bibliography: Then, in the same document as your outline, you should assemble an annotated bibliography.

Your annotated bibliography should include 4–6 sources, including at least 2 primary sources. These sources may include materials used in the course or in previous module papers. You may use The American Yawp, but it should not be divided up by chapter, it should be listed as one cohesive source.

For any outside sources, you can find scholarly secondary sources from the Excelsior College Library (Links to an external site.) or a primary source from the Excelsior College Library (Links to an external site.) or from this list of pre-approved primary source websites in US History (Links to an external site.). You should NOT use non-scholarly websites such as Wikipedia. If you have questions about finding appropriate sources, please contact your instructor.

Underneath each source, you should write a one-paragraph   (approximately 75-150 word) annotation entirely in your own words  summarizing the source’s content, evaluating it for credibility and usefulness in your paper, and comparing it with your other sources. 1) Outline: Your outline should be detailed enough to show the development of your topic, including bullets for the introduction, supporting points for at least four body paragraphs of the paper, and your conclusion.
