To help with the preparation of the paper, complete the following and submit it

  1. Topic: Refer to the Final Research Paper guidelines for
    your topic selection. Confirm your topic, and identify how this selection
    relates to your academic and professional pursuits. Review the feedback from
    your topic choice presented in the Week One discussion. How did your argument
    stand up to the examination of your peers?
  2. Thesis: Write a direct and concise thesis statement, which
    will become the point or perspective you will argue or prove in the Final

    how to develop a solid thesis statement.
  3. Annotated Bibliography: To help prepare for your final
    paper, you will be writing an annotated bibliography to indicate the quality of
    the sources you have read.  Please make sure to cite each source using APA
    style.  After each citation, write a brief paragraph (around 150 words)
    summarizing the source and examining how it will support you in defending your
    argument.  For more information and example of an annotated bibliography, please
    refer to section 7.7 in the Ashford Writing Center within the Learning Resources
    tab on the left navigation toolbar in your online course..  Keep in mind the

  2. Secondary sources supported by research in primary sources

  5. In graduate work, the use of peer-reviewed journal articles (journal

  6. Educational and Government websites may be appropriate in some cases, but
    should be evaluated carefully.

The paper must be five to seven pages in length (excluding the title pages)
and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least five scholarly
sources, three of which can be found in the Ashford Online Library, to support
your points. Of the five sources, two will be your primary sources, and one will
meet the multimedia requirement. For information regarding APA, including
samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center within the Learning
