Research Paper Proposal

Create a proposal for the Final Research Paper which is due in Week Six. This proposal will help you develop a comprehensive guideline for your Research Paper. 

The framework for the paper should include the following:

  1. A clear thesis statement
  2. An annotated bibliography for at least 10 scholarly or professional journal articles
  3. A summary that expresses the overall plan of the paper, including subtitles and topic sentences for each subtitle provided.

Sample Research Paper ideas could include: The politics of urban planning, an analysis of a specific area of urban planning (for example, transportation planning), a comparative analysis of several areas of urban planning (for example, transportation planning vs. housing planning), a historical analysis of urban planning in the United States, or a comparative analysis of urban planning on the international scale. The topics should be substantive and expansive.
