Must be original, no plagiarism. Must have references and be marked in the body of the work. No Wikipedia. No books as sources, please use reputable resources from the internet.
Outline/bibliography instructions for the final paper:
to Begin: Review the Final Research Paper
instructions in Week Five. To prepare for your Final Research Paper, complete
the following assignment and submit it to your instructor for feedback.
Task: Provide a full-sentence outline for your Final
Research Paper. Be sure to include your thesis statement in the outline. Also,
provide a well-developed annotated bibliography with at least five scholarly
sources related to your research topic.
Outline: Remember that the Final Research Paper will include
discussion of the political embattlement related to programs for the aged
(i.e., Medicaid, Medicare, Disability, Welfare, Supplemental Security Income,
and The Older Americans Act). Thus, your full-sentence outline is an
opportunity to begin your discussion of this topic. For help in creating your
full sentence outline, visit How
to Create a Full Sentence Outline.
Annotated Bibliography: You will need to locate scholarly sources
that not only highlight the varied discourses, historical aspects, evolutions,
and current impacts that inform the varied political stances, but that also
illustrate options that could be helpful in relieving this potential burden
(i.e., increased taxes, Social Security reform, or reduction in assistance).
Your annotated bibliography must contain at least five scholarly sources, at
least three of which must be found in the Ashford University Library. These
sources must have been written within the last five years. In your annotated
bibliography, you will need to provide a brief summary for each source and
explain how it will support your points. Sources must be listed and cited according
to APA style. To help you in developing your annotated bibliography,
Your outline must be two to three pages in length (excluding the title page and
annotated bibliography), and formatted according to APA style. Please remember
to include a title page. For information regarding APA, outlines, and annotated
bibliographies, visit the Ashford Writing Center, located within the Learning
Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.
Final paper instructions:
to Begin: This week you will incorporate feedback from the Week
Three Assignment to complete the Final Research Paper. You will have formed
your own conclusions about these issues, based on factual information and
evidence from scholarly sources. At this point, you have examined the social
aspects of aging. In addition, you have assessed the impact of aging on society
in the areas of economics, discrimination, and political influence, and
assessed the role of demographics on aging in terms of health, income,
employment, and retirement. Moreover, you have had the opportunity to examine
the numerous policies that are in existence for the purpose of assisting the
aged in our society.
Task: The Final Research Paper will focus on the impact of a
growing aging population in the United States and the aging population in
general. This impact could be defined in terms of increased health care costs
with simultaneous decreased economic contributions, increased housing needs,
and a reduced proportion of the population contributing to Social Security. As

Medicaid, Medicare, Disability, Welfare and Supplemental Security Income, and
