Week 3 – Assignment

Outline Worksheet and Final Paper Pre-Planning

Building on your assignment from Week 2, this week you will expand on your topic and develop a thesis statement and an outline for your Final Paper.

Prepare: This is the second step in writing your Final Paper, so please be sure to re-review the POL201 Assignment GuidePreview the document and the POL201 Final Paper templatePreview the document within the online classroom. Reflect on the policy topic that you determined last week and review your instructor’s comments and feedback regarding the policy and preliminary research. Review the research articles you found last week and determine what other aspects of the policy still need to be discussed and supported.

Reflect: Reflecting on your policy and your previous research, think about how to best structure your thesis (the argument) that you are supporting within this assignment. For this assignment, you will establish your thesis and then outline your paper with your supporting resources. You will utilize your four references from last week and add at least two additional references this week, for a total of six sources for this week’s assignment. At least four of these resources should be from the Ashford University Library. The following resources will help you to use the library effectively to find resources for your assignment:

Write: You will establish and develop a strong thesis for your Final Paper.
