For this assignment, you will submit your thesis and annotated bibliography for your Course Project on the assigned novel for your Module 03 written assignment. Please use an APA formatted template with a Rasmussen College cover. See the Course Guide for assistance if you are unfamiliar with the Rasmussen College APA template.
The Thesis statement should be on page 2 of the document. A thesis statement will guide the paper, so be sure to write a thesis that states what areas you will be covering in the paper. For example, if you are going to discuss one or more themes of the novel, then those themes should be in the thesis statement. Perhaps you will be covering two or more elements of fiction (from your literary terms). Then those terms should be an integral part of the thesis.
Note: In the final version of your paper, the thesis statement is the last sentence of your introductory paragraph. However, for this week, you will only turn in the thesis statement and your annotated bibliography.
Along with the thesis, you will submit the annotated bibliography that references and summarizes your research.
- Include at least five sources, with three from the Rasmussen online library.
- Each annotation should be four to five sentences in length.
- Each annotation should include facts, details, and a summary of the article.
- Your last statement in the annotation should be written in first person and state why you chose the resource.
The annotated bibliography should begin on page 3 of this assignment. The Annotated Bibliography should be done in Noodlebib (again see our library resources tab). Please avoid .com sites, personal websites/blogs, and Wikipedia. If you use outside resources, make sure they are credible resources with .edu or .org or .gov, rather than .com.
Below is a sample annotation for one entry. You will create 5 of these in a Word document. You may export them directly from Noodlebib onto your Word APA template once they are created in that program.
