The purpose of the proposal is not only to familiarize the student with the topic but also to ensure that the student’s approach to the topic is workable and off to a good start.

OBJECTIVES: Introduce the topic and explain the objectives or purpose of the essay in one solid paragraph combining a, b, and c. a) Topic • Identify the general topic to be analyzed. b) Background Questions • Answer simple questions about the topic, such as: Who was involved? What happened? Where and why did it take place? c) Thesis Statement • Clearly state what thesis or argument the essay is, probably, going to develop. 2. OUTLINE: Provide a preliminary outline of the essay. a) This should be in point form, including headings and subheadings, examples, etc., similar to these instructions. b) It should be clear from the outline how the essay will develop the thesis or argument by laying out the sections of the essay. 3. ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY: This is a list of sources with a paragraph of notes for each of your five sources. a) The Works Cited (MLA) should include at least five scholarly sources—books and peer-reviewed journal articles from a university library, besides any references to textbooks.
