Annotated bibliography and thesis statement development assignment (for upcoming policy research
Annotated bibliography and thesis statement development assignment (for upcoming policy research essay) – 20% (due February 16) – Prepare a list of approximately 10 sources (more sources are fine, but fewer sources are not recommended) for the upcoming research paper, including academic sources (i.e. peer reviewed journal articles or peer reviewed book chapters) and policy-related grey literature. Each source should be described in three to five sentences including the central argument of the piece and how it will contribute to your research paper. This collection of sources should conclude with a draft thesis statement for the upcoming paper. The thesis statement should consist of two parts – the central argument of your paper and how this argument will be developed and defended throughout the paper (this translates into a sentence or two as to how you will structure the paper).
