    Write a 5-7 page research paper that follows the Toulmin method. Incorporate five sources as support for the claim. Each source that is used as support in your essay must be included on the Annotated Bibliography with correct bibliographic entries. Each annotation should aim to connect and validate the use of each source to other sources and your thesis. Annotations will include a brief summary, evaluation, and discussion of your use.

    Student Learning Outcomes
    The writer takes a stand… makes informed, effective decisions… writes a research paper using credible secondary sources… identifies and uses standard reference work and the library to locate current, relevant, and peer reviewed sources.

    The Toulmin Method
    The basic requirements of the Toulmin method include:

    The Claim is your thesis statement. Like other essays written in an academic setting, your introductory paragraph introduces the reader to the topic by establishing the context. The Claim will be the last 1-2 sentences in the introductory paragraph. The Claim is what you aim to prove with your original argument and your research.

    The Support in the Toulmin method is both your argument (using your rhetorical argument skills) and the research conducted throughout this process. Your sources should include a variety of sources ranging from peer reviewed journal articles to videos. Use your knowledge from the previous essays completed this term to conduct your research by searching for current, reputable sources.

    The Annotated Bibliography
    The Annotated Bibliography will operate as your Works Cited page with annotations (notes) written beneath each bibliographic entry. The goal of each annotation is
    essentially, show your knowledge of the source. Each annotation will include your developed and well-writing discussion of the purpose of using the source, the connection to other sources, and the evaluation of the source. Annotations will include a brief summary, evaluation, and discussion of your use in one paragraph.
