Proposal and Annotated Bibliography
A proposal can help you to begin formulating a claim and finding a structure. An annotated bibliography will help you organize your research and find where it fits in your overall argument.
Proposal Assignment: Write a proposal for your researched academic argument. In this proposal you will begin determining what type of argument you are writing: definitional, evaluative, proposal, or a combination of one or more rhetorical method. Despite varying rhetorical approaches, all proposals should include the following:
1. Formulation of a claim: In this section of your proposal you should identify the problem/issue and explain why it is worthy of discussion and what is at stake. Include an examination of audience. Who would you like to reach with this argument?
2. Evidence for the claim: In this section you need to discuss your reasons or supporting points for the claim. You may include brief references to research you will use to support each reason. You may also include a discussion of anticipated counter arguments and how you will address them in your essay. Section 2 should be the longest section of your proposal.
3. Description of the rhetorical method: You have written an evaluation arguments, but you are not limited to that rhetorical strategy. You may write a proposal argument with a call to action, a causal argument, or choose a combination of two or more arguments. Choosing a style will help you organize your essay.
Annotated Bibliography Assignment: Compose an annotated bibliography for at least four sources you intend to use in your research paper. For each source, you will first write a works cited entry followed by a 150 word annotation describing the source’s argument and its usefulness in your essay. You can find a sample annotated bibliography entry on the Purdue OWL website: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/614/03/
Length: Together the proposal and annotated bibliography should total 1100 words in length, each part comprising half the word count minimum.
