Research Proposal and Preliminary Annotated Bibliography


Attached I have included my paper, please follow the rubric and these tasks to finish my paper. There’s also a sample work at the end of proposal and bib assignment description file. Make sure to follow the rubric and use the sample work to get an idea to make any changes to my paper
RESEARCH PROPOSAL:
Write an essay of no more than two pages (double spaced) in which you analyze your topic and the “problem” you have identified. Cite sources from your annotated bibliography to support and illustrate your claims. Be sure to include:
A title that identifies your project
A justification for what this project is important, timely, or useful to the field
Your research question
A description of your research process, including some of what you know already (from sources in your annotated bibliography, perhaps) and what you still hope to find out. Identify the subtopics (or subquestions) you plan to address in your project.
Proposed purpose
Intended audience
ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY:
Step 1 – Locate sources
Using the library databases, particularly the specialized databases in your field, locate high quality scholarly and non-scholarly sources related to your topic. You must include A MINIMUM of 4 sources, 3 of which are scholarly. You are welcome to include more.
(*NOTE: YOUR FINAL LITERATURE REVIEW WILL REQUIRE MORE THAN 4 SOURCES; that is what makes this a “preliminary” bibliography.)
Step 2 – Write your annotations
Include a full, correct citation for each source in the citation style common to your discipline (APA and MLA are two of the most common, but others like Chicago or IEEE are also possible. Please note the citation style in your title)
Follow each citation with a 2-3 paragraph annotation in which you:Identify the article’s main argument or thesis
Discuss how the author supports that claim (research methods, etc.)
Describe the author’s purpose
Describe how the source contributes to your knowledge about the problem you want to explore in your literature review
Identify the strengths and limitations (or constraints) of the research
Identify connections to other sources on your list (common ground, points of contrast, etc.)
