Research Paper Notes Page

This example presents two resources along with the evidence gathered from those resources that could be used in the final draft of the research paper.  Your Research Paper Notes Page naturally would have at least five sources of information along with the array of evidence that you discovered during researching that could be used in your research paper.

When you finalize your research you will then synthesize, determine what evidence to use and what evidence to omit, for your final draft.  Therefore your notes page would logically include more evidence and perhaps more resources than represented in the final research paper.  The notes page thus provides me with the ability to observe a path of your research.

“President Biden’s plan to stop the coronavirus”
The Boston Globe
Thursday, January 21, 2021

“Preliminary findings from focus groups and surveys conducted by the Boston Public Health Commission last month show notable racial divides over trust of the vaccine”

“only 47 percent said they would take a vaccine, while 37 percent said they would not and another 16 percent were unsure, according to a presentation given by Triniese Polk, director of the BPHC’s Office of Racial Equity and Community Engagement”

“Of the participants, 43.8 percent are Black or African American, 27.4 percent are white, 13.7 percent are two or more races, 12.3 percent are Latinx, and 2.7 percent are Asian.”

“For those folk who will not take or who are unsure (of the vaccine), some themes that surfaced are medical mistrust and history of medical experimentation, underlying health conditions, rapid vaccine development process, and a lack of long-term evidence that the vaccine is going to be effective,” Polk said.”

“And in addition to that, there is a very valid concern and distrust, mistrust for our communities of color, you know, based on historical wrongs that have been done in this population.”

“The huge stakes of Biden’s new Covid-19 plan”
Friday, January 22, 2021

” Biden appeared on camera on Thursday, signing a slew of executive orders that showed him in the act of wielding his new power to combat the virus. Seizing the power of the presidency to galvanize action, he issued a detailed new anti-pandemic strategy, pledged a genuine “wartime” effort to expand vaccine distribution, supplies and testing.”

“There is a strong impression that after four years of chaos and incompetence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, serious people are now in charge. This administration appears better stocked in expertise, respect for science, organizational skills and experience than the previous one…”

“The idea that you can get up here and talk about what you know, what the evidence, what the science is — let the science speak, it is somewhat of a liberating feeling,” said the government’s top infectious diseases expert.”

” 900,000 people filed first-time unemployment claims last week, building new pressure on Congress to quickly approve Biden’s $1.9 trillion rescue plan despite Republican concern over its cost.”

“Things are going to continue to get worse before they get better … The death toll will likely top 500,000 next month and the cases will continue to mount,” Biden said as he unveiled his new strategy at the White House.”
