Attatched First Submission
Attatched Feedback
The first part of your submission should be a revision and expansion of the topic from Unit 1 using the feedback from your instructor.
Next, write a formal research problem statement.
For an in-depth overview of the purpose, structure, and content of this critical paragraph, consult the guides listed in this unit’s learning materials.
After your research problem statement paragraph, provide an interdisciplinary annotated bibliography of research-quality sources related to your topic.
Annotation guides also are listed in the unit’s Learning Materials, along with examples of student submissions. Each annotation should provide a brief summary of the article and should state how and in what way the article contributes to your research.
Categorize the annotations under three or four headings. Include 2 to 4 annotations of peer-reviewed articles under each heading.
After you have categorized the annotations with headings, write a summary paragraph stating the purpose of your paper.
Use the information you gathered from your annotations and how you categorized your annotations to formulate this paragraph.
Finally, using the information you gathered from the annotations, and the headings you created, write a well-developed thesis statement.
Add the thesis statement to the purpose of your paper paragraph.
Copy and paste the purpose paragraph with the thesis statement as a new paragraph after the problem statement in #2
The thesis statement should address the problem and the areas of interdisciplinarity that you identified in your headings and should encompass the interdisciplinary scope of your paper.
Underline the thesis sentence.
Guidelines: Your annotated bibliography should include no fewer than eight (8) research-quality sources from at least three (3) scholarly disciplines from peer-reviewed academic sources.
Provide flawless reference listings in APA format. Use the examples in this APA guide.
Important Note: Keep in mind that the information you gather from your references will be used to draw from when you outline your paper (Unit 5) and write the body of your paper in Unit 7. It will be from these articles and perhaps others that you accumulate information (the facts, statistics, and examples) that you will include in your paper. Your annotations will serve as important research notes and “data” from which you will use to write the body of your research paper.
Interdisciplinarity:
Remember that your paper must be written with an interdisciplinary approach. Your main topic will fall into one discipline, but when you write, you should expand the scope of your paper to include the perspectives of at least two more disciplines. Looking at the topic you wish to explore from several disciplines will help to make your paper stronger and will give you a much better understanding of what it is that you are trying to accomplish. The following list is presented again to help you. It is not all-inclusive, but will give you an idea of certain disciplines from which you can explore:
The natural sciences are such as astronomy, biology, chemistry, materials science (metallurgy), physics, earth science (geology, geophysics, hydrology, meteorology, physical geography, and soil science), atmospheric science, and oceanography.
The social sciences can include anthropology, archaeology, criminology, economics, education, linguistics, law, communication studies, history, political science, sociology, human geography, and psychology.
The humanities are such as ancient and modern languages, literature, philosophy, religion, and visual and performing arts such as music and theater.
Think more about this now as you further develop your paper.
Word Length:
Each introduction to each annotation category should be 50 to 75 words
Each annotation should be between 100 – 150 words.
The research problem statement should be between 200 – 300 words.
The thesis statement should be one sentence and should encompass the scope of your paper.
