Top of Form
For this assignment, you will submit your thesis and annotated bibliography for your Course Project on the assigned novel (Novel by Mark Haddon: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) for your Module 03 written assignment. Please use an APA formatted template with a Rasmussen College cover. See the Course Guide for assistance if you are unfamiliar with the Rasmussen College APA template.
Thesis: (one full page)
The Thesis statement should be on page 2 of the document. A thesis statement will guide the paper, so be sure to write a thesis that states what areas you will be covering in the paper. For example, if you are going to discuss one or more themes of the novel, then those themes should be in the thesis statement. Perhaps you will be covering two or more elements of fiction (from your literary terms). Then those terms should be an integral part of the thesis.
Note: In the final version of your paper, the thesis statement is the last sentence of your introductory paragraph. However, for this week, you will only turn in the thesis statement and your annotated bibliography.
Along with the thesis, you will submit the annotated bibliography that references and summarizes your research.
· Include at least five sources, with three from the Rasmussen online library.
· Each annotation should be 6 to 7 sentences in length.
· Each annotation should include facts, details, and a summary of the article.
· Your last statement in the annotation should be written in first person and state why you chose the resource.
The annotated bibliography should begin on page 3 of this assignment. The Annotated Bibliography should be done in Noodlebib (again see our library resources tab). Please avoid .com sites, personal websites/blogs, and Wikipedia. If you use outside resources, make sure they are credible resources with .edu or .org or .gov, rather than .com.
Below is a sample annotation for one entry. You will create 5 of these in a Word document. You may export them directly from Noodlebib onto your Word APA template once they are created in that program.
Your next course project assignment will be due early in Module 04. You should plan to get started on your revised thesis and outline as soon as possible. For more information about the Module 04 project assignment, review the instructions in Module 04 and the Course Project tab in the course guide.
Rasmussen’s Library and Learning Services team has developed a LIT3382 Modern World Literature Course Guide which contains course project information and resources specific to each project component. For this project assignment, the Writing Guide, APA Guide, and Course Project section may be helpful for writing a thesis and annotated bibliography. Access to the guide can be found in your Module 01 course tab.

Literary Terms 3
In any field of study, you will find vocabulary and terms that are unique to that field. As you study literature, and in particular the differences between genres and styles across the decades covered in this course, you will find it helpful to utilize the particular terms associated with reading and analyzing works of literature.
Learning these terms will help you as you work through the readings, write about literature in your writing assignments, and prepare you for the final exam. Please make a note of any unfamiliar terms and their definitions, so that you may refer to them while studying. Many of these may be found in the glossary of your text, and some may be found within the lessons as you progress through the course.
An extended speech or narrative, presumed to be thought rather than spoken by a character.
Identification with another’s situation so as to experience similar emotions and physical sensations.
