First, you will create a thesis statement that includes a clear research question that you are answering. A thesis statement is a 1 or 2-sentence statement that condenses the argument you will make in your paper. It identifies the topic of your paper and indicates the position you will take with the topic you present in your paper. It will be the guide for the content and focus of your paper and subsequent presentation.
This assignment will require no references, though its development should be based on your review of the literature. Thus, your thesis statement will consider this information as you develop your clear, specific, and succinct thesis statement that will direct your other assignments in this course. Keep in mind that this should generally be one sentence and no more than two sentences. It is important that you are able to summarize your topic and position succinctly to truly be clear on what you are reviewing and applying.

You will also develop an annotated outline (incorporating 8-10 references) for your research paper.
