500 Words Proposal And 1800 Words Easy

Proposal (500 words and annotated bibliography) Outline your topic - introduce your topic and begin to describe it in detail. Why is this topic important to write about? What does this topic question or challenge? Include a thesis - This is very IMPORTANT. Make sure you have 1 - 2 sentences that answers the question: What am I arguing for or against in this paper? Outline your sources and framework - What sources are helping you “think through” this topic? How have other authors framed this topic? Do you agree or disagree with them? Annotated Bibliography What is an annotated bibliography? A bibliography is a list of the research sources you use in your paper (books, articles, etc.). An annotation is simply a note that summarizes/evaluates a text. Put them together to make an annotated bibliography! Pick a minimum of 3 academic sources Cite each source in MLA style Annotate each citation with 1 - 3 sentences that answer the following: Summarize - what are the main arguments of this text? What topics are covered? Evaluate - Is it useful for your paper? How does it compare with other sources in your bib? Is this information reliable? What are the goals of the text? Reflect - Was this source helpful? How does it help you shape your argument? How can you use this source in your research project? Has it changed how you think about your topic? Be concise! Your source annotations should be concise (1-2 short paragraphs) All of this is on Purdue OWL ---> yay! This is a formatted example of what your annotated bibliography should look like. Pay attention to formatting! https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/general_writing/common_writing_assignments/annotated_bibliographies/annotated_bibliography_samples.html Final Paper While you will have some creative freedom in what you choose to write about, a significant portion of your course grade is an 1800 word (approximately 6 double-spaced pages) re- search paper. It must directly relate to course concepts. Your paper must include an intro- duction, conclusion, minimum of three in-text citations, a bibliography, a thesis statement, and evidence that advances your argument throughout the paper. You are welcome to use non-academic sources to supplement the three minimum scholarly sources. (The specific requirements and topics about proposal and essay I upload as a file below) As we approach your paper proposal, I thought it useful to have a review guide at this point in the quarter. The hope is that the review guide will help you narrow down your final paper topics and strengthen the key foundational concepts of this course. Focusing on the key concepts of Week 1 - 5 will help you frame your final paper arguments. Review the texts on your own or with a study group. Reflection questions about your paper topics are at the end and might help you pick a topic. . Key Terms/Concepts: Try to define these in your own words or find a quote/passage you think best defines this concept. - Strategy tip: Remember that you will need citations for your paper. If you think you will use any of these concepts to frame your argument, it would be smart to find those important quotes now to work into your paper later. Always note the author, text, and page number of the quote for later reference. Week 1 ● Social construction ● Social construction of sexuality Week 2 ● Sexual essentialism ● Sex hierarchy ● Sex negativity ● Sex positivity ● Sex panic (moral panic) ● Sex wars ● “Good sex” vs. “bad sex” Week 3 ● Reproductive justice ● Social construction of virginity Week 4 ● Sexual identity ● Sexual desire ● Essentialist homosexuality ● Racialized heterosexuality ● Rape culture Week 5 ● Transactional relationships ● Sexual labor ● Sexual commerce ● The “girlfriend experience” ● Bounded authenticity ● Transnational relationships and migration ● Paid and unpaid labors ● "Marital privilege" ● Continued wage gaps based on race and gender ● Economic instability of unmarried women ● Correlation between unmarried motherhood and poverty Picking your topic... Consider these questions as you select your paper topic. Try to answer them so that you have a plan on how to approach 1) proposal and annotated bibliography (due WEEK 6, Friday May 8rd by 5:00 pm) and 2) final paper (due WEEK 10, Friday June 5 by 11:59pm).
