Submit a formal outline for your Final Paper that is due in Week Five. Your outline must include a tentative thesis of your chosen topic that presents an original argument and gives direction and purpose to the paper. Also, you should outline at least five topic sentences that support your thesis. Include at least two subtopics that elaborate on each topic sentence.
Here is a template that you should follow when outlining your draft:
Topic sentence 1
Topic sentence 2
Topic sentence 3
Topic sentence 4
Topic sentence 5
After your outline, include a list of five scholarly sources, other than those found in the course textbook, that you plan to use to support your thesis. For each source, write a four- to five-sentence description of how you will use its content to support your thesis/claim.
Include a title page to your assignment, formatted in proper APA style. Cite your sources in text and on the reference page.
