Once you have received feedback on the question, refine as necessary and begin your research for the annotated bibliography.

For this post you are going to post a well thought out research question (or a series of related questions) to help you begin conducting your research for the annotated bib (And the thesis and research proposal you will write afterward to prepare for your fleshed out essay). After you post your own, you will provide feedback to THREE of your classmates. Use Lecture 13 to both to formulate your questions and to generate your feedback to classmates (so it will probably help to have it open in another tab while you work on this).
You are allowed to choose any topic you wish – but choose wisely! You will use this topic for all of the final project – this journal, the annotated bibliography, the research proposal, and your final research essay. Make sure it is arguable, researchable, and has merit to a larger community and in a larger context.

3. Your purpose for proposing this essay. Why is this topic important to you?
4. What is your working thesis statement/controlling idea? Remember that this should connect to the research from your annotated bibliography. What did you discover? What will you be able to “prove” to the reader in this essay you are proposing based
on your research?
5. What themes/major ideas of your topic would you be examining? How would you be approaching these in your writing task? Here you can briefly explain how you would break your ideas down…what in particular you would be analyzing. Think about the sources from your annotated bibliography here and also about how you will organize.
6. What are the larger implications of this topic? What’s at stake? Get to the “so what?” of your essay idea – explain why it matters to the world outside our class.
