Making a Case for Your Research (Annotated Bibliography and Literature Review/Scholarship Synthesis) 3+ pages (not including citations and annotations); 8+ sources (at least one book)

Purpose:

Your goal is to engage in a thorough understanding of your research materials in order to develop a thoughtful proposal for your final paper. At this point, you should narrow down your topic/ideas into an issue/problem of interest based on a specific field. (You are welcome to use previous books/articles.) You will first compose an annotated bibliography containing at least eight sources (three scholarly!) based on the issue. You will then, in essay form, explain what the issue is, what scholars are saying about the issue, and what direction you plan to take based on the current dialogue. Cliche topics such as stem cell research, euthanasia, abortion rights, globalization, marijuana legalization, etc. are off limits. Be creative! Your chosen topic will be subject to my approval.

Details:

Part 1: You first will gather at least 8 sources that you plan to use for your final project and summarize them very briefly beneath each citation. At least 3 of these sources must be scholarly–and you must cite a book. https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/614/01/ (Links to an external site.) 

Part 2: Following the bibliography and annotations, you will consider each source on a holistic level. More specifically, you will begin by describing your research topic and what stance you plan on taking in the future (this may serve as your opening for the larger project, so choose your position carefully). Then, you will place each source in a dialogue of sorts: Which sources make similar claims? What other sources attempt to refute these claims? When were the sources published? Has the academic opinion on the issue changed or remained static throughout the years? What sources do you find the most valuable? The main point of this assignment is to demonstrate thorough examination of your sources, and, most importantly, emphasize a specific and unique direction and impending argument for your own work. This assignment is meant for you to get a complete idea of the scholarship on your topic so that you will be fully prepared to write your own argument for the final research paper! (We will go over this in greater detail after the annotations portion of your assignment is complete.)

While you are looking for sources and narrowing down your research topics, you will be required to meet with me in KE 252 so that we can make sure your topic is manageable, sources are viable, and generally touch base on your progress through the course. You will sign up for a time. If you fail to show up, you will be counted absent. Please arrive on time and come with sources, annotations drafted, and questions!
