Thesis Statement
Write a thesis statement summarizing the main argument you will be making in your final paper.  This may change as you move forward, but it will be your general road map.  A thesis statement should not be more than 1-2 sentences and should address all the questions listed in the assignment.

Annotated Bibliography

Provide a list and brief description of at least six sources that you have identified for the paper.  Two of these must be a primary source document and two must be an academic journal article.  These should be specific sources, not just places where you can find sources.  The goal here is to see that you have dug in a bit and actually found something that pertains to the issue you will be researching.  Annotated bibliographies should be submitted via the Assignments Folder.

If you are unfamiliar with annotated bibliographies, this guide may be useful:

Abstract

Prepare a short abstract (one or two paragraphs) with a brief summary of the main arguments of your paper.

Final Paper

The final paper must contain 10-12 full pages of content, double-spaced, with standard 1inch margins and 12-point standard font.  You must use APA style for citations.  All papers must use a minimum of five primary and five secondary sources.  You may use the sources assigned for this course, but you may not count them toward the minimum sources for your project.  At least two of your secondary sources must be academic journal articles.

Your paper should have a minimum of 10 sources, five primary and five secondary sources. (If you are unfamiliar with this distinction, check out the information here: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/workshops/hypertext/ResearchW/resource.html.) Restrict your sources to newspaper articles from major national and international papers, published journals and magazine articles, academic sources, and websites from major organizations and government agencies. Course materials may be used as a reference, but it does not count toward the minimum number of sources. Encyclopedias and dictionaries are not appropriate sources for college level work. Online sources are fine, but they must be authoritative sources. Wikipedia, About.com, and other nonacademic websites are not acceptable sources. (Bear in mind that anyone can submit an article to Wikipedia.)

If you are unsure about how to determine whether an online source is a good one, the Online Writing Lab at Purdue University has an excellent resource guide: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/handouts/research/r_evalsource4.html. If you still have doubts as to whether a source is acceptable, send your instructor an e-mail.

Citations: All direct quotes from any source must be in quotation marks or indented and identified as a quotation in APA format. If you have questions about how to do this, consult the reference guides at UMUC’s Effective Writing Center. In addition, anytime you use information from a source, even if it is not a direct quote, you must include the source.

When you use quotations in your paper, you must cite the source, using the standard APA format. The general rule of thumb for the ratio of original writing to quotes is at least four lines of analysis for any line that you quote. For the most part, you should paraphrase your sources, instead of quoting directly. Remember, as well, that you must cite your source for any sections that are paraphrased or from which you used specific information. Generally speaking, unless the paragraph consists solely of analysis or your own opinion, you should be citing a source (or sources) at the end of the paragraph. 

If you are unfamiliar with the rules on when and how to cite, consult this website: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/.

Plagiarism: All work submitted must be original. Your instructor may submit all stages of this assignment to Turnitin, an online plagiarism analyzer. The database includes a variety of print sources and all online sources, as well as contributions from known “paper mills” and previously submitted papers from UMUC and other universities. Review the rules concerning plagiarism and academic integrity carefully. UMUC takes academic integrity very seriously. Plagiarism carries strict penalties, and any paper that is identified as plagiarized will receive a zero for that assignment. Serious cases of plagiarism may also result in formal charges. Do not wait until after you have submitted the paper to determine what constitutes plagiarism, because at that point it will be too late.
