Eng 328 week 2 assignment ( outline and annotated bibliography )

Outline and Annotated BibliographyThe planning of technical and scientific documents is essential for clear and concise communication. Keeping audience and purpose in mind, the writer must generate ideas about a chosen topic, and then, organize those ideas in the form of a working outline, while also researching additional information and understanding its place in the overall project at hand. For reference, the following are possible topics for your Final Project:  

Environmental cleanup proposal
New energy resource proposal
Senior healthcare facility proposal
Telecommuting proposal
School nutrition/fitness proposal
Business market proposal
Educational grant proposal
Topic of your choice (Needs approval from instructor)

You will need instructor approval if you choose to use a different topic. Please submit this request by the end of Week Two. For this assignment, you will create (1) an outline and (2) an annotated bibliography, which will form the foundation for the Final Project. Page 44 of Technical Communication offers clustering and tree-diagram techniques for developing supporting ideas around a main topic. You are encouraged to explore these techniques. You will then organize those ideas in the form of a working outline.Outline steps:

Review the sample outline in this week’s required resource:  Ashford Writing Center. (n.d.). Outline [Handout]. Retrieved from https://cdmsmedia.bridgepointeducation.com/MediaService/MediaService.svc/constellation/book/AUWC.12.4/%7Bhandouts%7Da.1_sample_outline.pdf
Develop a one- to two-page outline of your chosen topic and associated ideas or sub-topics. Your outline should be formatted as either alphanumeric, full-sentence, or decimal. Be sure to include a working thesis statement in your outline. While this version of your thesis will surely change during the drafting process, your thesis for this assignment should provide clear direction for your outline’s supporting points.

Regarding research and the development of an annotated bibliography, the author of Technical Communication states on page 43:
Once you have a good idea of what you already know about your topic, you need to obtain the rest of the information you will need.  You can find and evaluate what other people have already written by reading reference books, scholarly books, articles, [and] Web sites (author, date).
Immediately following the outline you have just developed, and in the same document file, you will include an annotated bibliography of no less than 10 entries.  Annotated bibliography steps:

Develop an annotated bibliography of sources that you believe will support the purpose of your Final Project.
Your Annotated Bibliography will contain full citations in APA format.
Following each full citation and employing full sentences, you will include a descriptive and critical assessment of each entry.
Avoid using first- and second-person pronouns. Rather, refer to the author in your descriptive and critical assessment of the author’s ideas.
