Once you have selected your research question, review the materials in the text that can help you get started, and then begin conducting outside research using the online library, the Internet, the Wall Street Journal websites, the Economist, and so forth. From your research, create an annotated bibliography. (An annotated bibliography includes the full reference in APA format and a paragraph explaining the value of the source to your research.) This will help you both in organizing your research, and in generating your reference page at the end of the project. At the end of Week 3 you will submit a Topic Proposal in which you will identify the topic you selected for the Course Project. Within this Topic Proposal, you will also include the annotated bibliography for your sources. You are required to have five to seven outside sources for this project. The Topic Proposal will consist of a one page, typed, and single spaced paper. The final research paper will consist of a 5-6 page typed and double-spaced paper (750-1,500 words) with at least one graphic (such as a graph or table) that is due at the end of Week 7. The paper should include a title page, an introduction stating the purpose of the paper, the text (5-6 pages), graphic(s), a conclusion, and bibliography.
