Ashford 4: – Week 3 – Assignment

Final Research Paper Draft

This week you will be creating and submitting a draft of your Final Research Paper that is based on the topic you selected from the “Research Paper Guidelines” and from the Final Research Paper Outline from Week Two. Please be sure to review the Model Research Paper Draft to understand the expectations for the final paper.

The Final Research Paper Draft must contain the following components:

A title page and a references page (based upon your      annotated bibliography). An introduction that features a thesis statement that      is clearly articulated and argumentative and/or analytical. Ideally, the      introduction should be a single, compelling paragraph. Body paragraphs that develop at least one      research-supported argument. (Note: The body of your paper should feature      in-text citations that leverage at least four different sources.) APA-style formatting, including properly documented      citations.

Your draft must be 750 to 2,000 words in length, excluding the title and references pages. Remember to proofread your work for errors in grammar, mechanics, style, and formatting. Submit as much work as possible, whether it is a full or partial draft. Please refer to “Research Paper Guidelines” as well as Week Five for the Final Research Paper instructions.

The purpose of the Final Research Paper Draft is to ensure you are making satisfactory progress on your Final Research Paper while providing you with an opportunity to receive direction and feedback from your instructor. If you find that you are struggling to complete the draft, make sure that you have read and reviewed this week’s required activities. Additionally, consider contacting your instructor for additional one-on-one guidance.
