The cards may be submitted as .jpg or .pdf files. Samples of  student primary and secondary source note cards and bibliography cards are provided. Follow the directions on the assignment–these samples may not be perfect, but they give you an example of each type of card. You will send images of all 28 or more of your cards including 10 or more primary source note cards from your short story, 15 or more secondary source note cards from four or more secondary sources in Module Four Readings and Resources, and 4 or more bibliography cards for each of the journal articles that you are reading and taking notes from. Be sure to include the required sources for your short story: Davison and Suess for “The Yellow Wallpaper” and Claborn and Sherard for “Sonny’s Blues.” You may also include additional notes from the websites in Module Two, but these sources will not count toward the four required secondary sources for your research paper.

Research Paper Writing Process Assignment

Working Bibliography and Primary and Secondary Source Note Cards Due Date: Monday, November 22

3 Working Bibliography Cards

10+ Primary Source Note Cards (the short story)

15 Secondary Source Note Cards (taken from journal articles in Canvas Module Four)

November 18, Thursday: Short Story Selection—post a paragraph in the Research Project Discussion Forum discussing your short story selection. Include a quote from the story.

November 22, Monday: Bibliography and Primary and Secondary Source Note Cards Due by midnight. See Module Four Submission Folder for instructions on how to submit note cards. The research process begins with your collection of information on 3×5 index cards. These cards will substantiate the development of your expertise on your selected short story by consulting the interpretation of a variety of experts. First, you will select 10 or more significant quotes from the short story, your primary source, and place each one on a separate card. Then, you will begin reading the two required secondary sources for your short story (Claborn and Sherard for “Sonny’s Blues” or Suess and Davison for “The Yellow Wallpaper”). Take five or more notes from each of these sources. Then, you will select one or more articles from the list of journal articles on the Readings and Resources page and take notes from each of them. You should develop a minimum of fifteen notes from the three sources that you read, but you certainly may take more notes and you should consider reading as many of the secondary sources as you would like.

I. Primary and Secondary Source Note Card: 3×5 index card

Primary Source Note Card: 3×5 index card

Create 10 or more note cards from the primary source, either “The Yellow Wallpaper” or “Sonny’s Blues.”

Each notecard (3×5 index card) should include the following information: The author’s last name and the page number of the quotation, the key word or subtopic that the quote supports, and the exact quote copied exactly as it appears in the source enclosed in quotation marks. You will include the same information on a note card for each of the secondary sources that you read to develop your interpretation of the story. With well-written note cards, you should be able to arrange them into pairs or groups to develop each paragraph of the body of your essay. You will begin each subtopic with a quote from the short story followed by one or more quotes from secondary sources.

Sample Note Card (for primary and secondary sources)

Gilman 553 (Author’s Last name and Page Number)
Writing (a potential subtopic)

“John is a physician, and perhaps–(I would not say it to a living soul, of course, but this is dead paper and a great relief to my mind)—perhaps that is one reason I do not get well faster” (553). (exact quote from the short story or from a secondary source article)


Secondary Source Note Cards: Create 15+ from a combination of 3 or more secondary source articles posted in Module Four. Include the first two articles and any others that you find most supportive of your claims.

Begin creating note cards from each of the secondary sources posted in the research paper Readings and Resources page in Module Four. You will include the same information on each of those cards as you did on the primary source note card:

· 1. Author’s last name,
· 2. page number of the article or the abbreviation (n. pag.) if no page numbers are provided, along with the paragraph number (par. #),
· 3. potential subtopic to which the quote relates, and
· 4. the exact quote in quotation marks.

II. Preparing the Working Bibliography

Prepare a working bibliography card for each article (secondary source) posted in Module Four that you are reading about your short story (the primary source). You will need all of the information that is required on the Works Cited page of your research paper for the card. Articles in a library database are illustrated in OWL: uide/mla_works_cited_electronic_sources.html

When typing your final research paper, you will double-space entries on your Works Cited page; I have single-spaced this assignment sheet:

Author. Title. Title of container (self contained if book), Other contributors (translators or editors), Version (edition), Number (vol. and/or no.), Publisher, Publication Date, Location (pages, paragraphs and/or URL, DOI or permalink). 2nd container’s title, Other contributors, Version, Number, Publisher, Publication date, Location, Date of Access (if applicable).

For example: “Sonny’s Blues” Secondary Sources: These two sources are required.

You will read and take notes from the first two articles listed under each author.

Claborn, John. “Who Set You Feelin’? Harlem, Communal Affect, and the Great Migration Narrative in James Baldwin’s ‘Sonny’s Blues.’” English Language Notes, vol. 48, no. 1, 2010, pp. 89-100. JSTOR. Accessed 19 November 2021.

Sherard, Tracey. “Sonny’s Bebop: Baldwin’s ‘Blues Text’ as Intracultural Critique.” African American Review, vol. 32, no. 4, 1998, pp. 691-705. Academic Search Premier. Accessed 20 November 2021.

“The Yellow Wallpaper” Secondary Sources: These two sources are required.

Davison, Carol Margaret. “Haunted House/Haunted Heroine: Female Gothic Closets in ‘The Yellow Wallpaper.’” Women’s Studies, vol. 33, 2004, pp. 47-75. Literature

Resource Room. Accessed 19 November 2021.


Suess, Barbara A. “The Writing’s on the Wall: Symbolic Orders in ‘The Yellow Wallpaper.” Women’s Studies, vol. 32, 2003, pp. 79-97. DOI

10.1080/00497870390171248. Literature Resource Room. Accessed 20 November 2021.

For the other secondary sources, look for the bibliography information and omit any information that is not available. You may use Dybala Canvas Website for the missing database.
