Prewriting and Annotated Bibliography Details
Prewriting and planning are essential to writing an effective essay, so for this weekâ€™s assignment, you will complete the prewriting and planning steps of the process for developing the Research Essay. Additionally, you will also included an annotated bibliography, which includes a full APA Style reference followed by a brief summary of the source, and a description of how that source may be used in your essay. To complete the prewriting assignment, you will submit one document (or perhaps multiple documents) that include ALL of the following:
- A prewriting/”discovering” exercise to generate lots of ideas, like freewriting, brainstorming, or concept mapping. (3 points)
- A working thesis statement (directly addresses the prompt; most effective as the last sentence of the introduction. (2 points)
- An outline of your essay. (3 points)
- An annotated bibliography with 6 sources. Make sure to review this document for information about how the annotated bibliography should be constructed. (10 points)
Note: if you create a concept map in an image editing program, you may submit this portion of the assignment separately from the rest of the assignment in a common image format, like .jpg or .pdf. Genius Scan is a great, free app that allows you to take, upload, and send images in.jpg or .pdf right from your smartphone.
the prewriting should be about the essay you wrote. thanks
