Unit II: For your first submission, you will need to choose a topic based upon American homeland security from which to create research questions. Once you have chosen your topic, you will need to submit an outline of your preliminary research with at least two scholarly references. Within your outline, discuss why you chose your topic, possible subtopics for focus (at least two), possible research questions you could investigate, and the relevance of your two scholarly references to your research.

Your topic outline should be at least one page in length, double-spaced, Times New Roman 12 pt font, with appropriate APA style writing. 

 

2) Unit III Annotated Bibliography

 

For this assignment, you are to create an Annotated Bibliography containing five sources related to the three of the following objectives:

1. Analyze the roots of modern terrorism including various terrorist groups.

2. Examine the nature and characteristics of nationalistic and ethnic separatist terrorism.

3. Summarize the historical and current roles of women in terrorism.

4. Evaluate the tactics of modern terrorism.

5. Explain the impact of the Spanish War and the Basque region.

Your other two sources should relate to the research paper you are working on for Unit VIII. An Annotated Bibliography is considered a summary and/or evaluation of a source. Usually, annotations perform three different functions (summarize, assess, and reflect) dependent upon your purpose.

However, for this assignment, you just need to provide a one paragraph summary of five different sources for a total of five paragraphs. Each paragraph must be a minimum of 250 words in length.
