For this assignment you will write a short progress report regarding what youve accomplished for your long report, along with an annotated bibliography of at least 4 sources you plan on using for the project. When you write this short progress report, you should have made meaningful progress on your work for the long report and a clear idea of what you still need to do to finish it.

In this 2-page, single-spaced short progress report, you should include the following:


  • Identify the purpose of your final project, who your target audience is, what you would like to achieve in completing the project (beyond fulfilling a requirement for the class). Be specific in giving an overview of your project. ( I’M WORKING ON SYSTEMIC RACISM IN JOBS IN AMERICA )


  • Describe the work you have accomplished so far, including the research youve done, the sources you will use, the planning, outlining, and writing youve done so far.
  • Describe any problems youve encountered so far (if any) and your working process. Is your work progressing as planned? Why or why not?
  • Describe the work you have remaining for the project, and your plan to complete this work.


  • Summarize your overall assessment of your status on the project. If you have any questions for me, address these at the end of the short progress report.

Annotated Bibliography:

  • List at least 4 sources you will be using for the project, citing them according to MLA or APA guidelines, and include a 3-4 sentence annotation for each. (The annotation should include a brief summary of the source, and your assessment of how you will use the source for the project). See my notes on creating an annotated bibliography below.

This example uses MLA format for the journal citation:

Waite, Linda J., Frances Kobrin Goldscheider, and Christina Witsberger. “Nonfamily Living and the Erosion of Traditional Family Orientations Among Young Adults.” American Sociological Review, vol. 51, no. 4, 1986, pp. 541-54.

The authors, researchers at the Rand Corporation and Brown University, use data from the National Longitudinal Surveys of Young Women and Young Men to test their hypothesis that nonfamily living by young adults alters their attitudes, values, plans, and expectations, moving them away from their belief in traditional sex roles. They find their hypothesis strongly supported in young females, while the effects were fewer in studies of young males. Increasing the time away from parents before marrying increased individualism, self-sufficiency, and changes in attitudes about families. In contrast, an earlier study by Williams cited below shows no significant gender differences in sex role attitudes as a result of nonfamily living.
