Order Description

Task 1: Thesis Statement and the Annotated Bibliography
Task 1 consists of a thesis statement and an annotated bibliography. An annotated bibliography is a collection of reliable sources with citations and annotations, or

paragraphs about those sources. The citations are the “bibliography” part, and the annotations are the “annotated” part. You’ll have a citation for each source

followed by a paragraph summarizing the source and discussing its credibility and relevance

Your thesis should:
1. Be one-sentence long and include a single, clear, debatable assertion.
2. Address the primary research question.
3. Preview the essay’s main supporting points.
4. Be the last sentence of the introductory paragraph.
Try to fit your thesis into this template:
Research suggests [insert your debatable claim here] because [insert supporting point 1, supporting point 2, and supporting point 3].
Research shows that _________________ is ______________ because _________, __________, and ___________.

Annotated Bibliography
You will need 10 reliable sources for your annotated bibliography
We recommend approximately 2-4 sources for each of your supporting points.
When you have your sources, you will want to begin thinking about how to write the annotated bibliography. For each of the 10 bibliography entries, you’ll need an

annotation written in your own words, without quotations or excessive paraphrase. Each of the 10 entries on the reference page should have the following:
o An APA-formatted reference citation with the source’s publication information.
o An annotation of about 150-200 words, in paragraph format, that includes the following:
· Summary of the source’s main points (3-4 sentences): What are the source’s main points? What new information is presented?
Evaluation of the source author’s or organization’s credibility (1-2 sentences): Evaluate the credibility of the author or organization. This may include information

about the author’s credentials/expertise, where the article appeared (e.g., website, academic journal, professional journal, textbook, periodical), whether the article

has been peer reviewed, and whether or not the article is current.
Explanation of the source’s relevance to your thesis statement (1-2 sentences): How does this source relate directly to your thesis statement? Does it provide evidence

for one of your main points? Discuss the relevance of the source for your research paper.

The paper is between 10-15 pages long, but that includes the title page and references page(s). The evaluators have a very precise structure in mind for your essay,

and it should match the exact wording of your thesis statement: Research suggests that [your central claim] because [main supporting point 1, main supporting point 2,

and main supporting point 3].

• Cite your sources and use in-text citations within the outline of your body where they best support your ideas.

For example:
