Research Project â€“ Annotated Outline Instructions
After selecting a criminal justice topic for the Final Research Paper and submitting your Thesis Statement on the topic you chose, you will compose an Annotated Outline of your Final Research Paper. Your Annotated Outline must fully support each facet of your Thesis Statement.
The Annotated Outline must provide a detailed blueprint of the Final Research Paper in current APA format and contain the following:
(1) The Thesis Statement;
(2) Three Main Headings (at least); and
(3) A Reference Page.
The complete thesis statement must also be provided.
The three main headings must provide an argument rather than ask a question. The three main headings must be supported with at least 2 subpoints each. The subpoints must each be 3â€“5 sentences and accompanied by a current APA citation of an academic resource for each subpoint. One of the three main headings and its subsequent subpoints must incorporate a biblical worldview.
The Annotated Outline must include a reference page with 5 academic resources published within the last 5 years and composed using current APA formatting.
Before submitting the Annotated Outline, review the Research Project â€“ Annotated Outline Grading Rubric to verify that all components of the assignment have been completed. Save your work as a Microsoft Word document and submit it to Blackboard.
