This week, submit the following:
A thesis statement stating your opinion/conclusion on the issue, the supporting points you will offer, and at least one relevant opposing view you will address.
An annotated bibliography with an evaluation of at least five (5) sources you intend to use in your final paper to support your claim.
These are sources that provide evidence to support that your claim should be accepted by the reader.
Scholarly sources are preferred and should be used where available; due to the nature of some of the topics, authoritative articles in very high-quality substantive journals may also be acceptable.
Use the Source Evaluation Worksheet to determine the following:
If your source is current
If it is not current, explain why you think it is acceptable.
If your source is credible, reliable, and authoritative
How well your source supports your thesis
If the annotation does not make this obvious, explain to your instructor how you will use it.
If your support is popular
If it is, explain to your instructor why you think it is acceptable.
Prepare a citation, annotation, and evaluation for each source.
