Gender wage gap between Hispanics and whites.

My topic is: Gender wage gap between Hispanics and whites.
I would need an annotated bibliography in a separate page please.
Part 1: Written Proposal (formative assignment)
First, you will propose your project topic here so I can give you feedback before you create your entire project. Your proposal should be between 150-200 words. Your proposal should include your issue worded as a question and will be graded on its thoroughness. As such, you may wish to address the following questions in your paragraph-form proposal of 150-200 words. (Please do not respond in bullet points.).
What is the topic? (This should be labeled and articulated in one or two short sentences.)
What is the issue? (This should be labeled and written as a question)
What personal values, interests, career, event, policy, law, or text (fictional or non, film) are you using to ground your project? (That is, what text–or texts–gave you the idea for this project)?
Why do you find this topic interesting?
What do you know about this topic already?
What type of information do you think you’ll need to begin your research for this project considering the necessary components for the Final Project?
Please be sure to include the word count in parenthesis at the end of your post; for example: (200 words). Link to example student proposal

.
Part 2: Research-Annotated Bibliography
Now that you have a direction, you will find at least 5 reliable, relevant sources. Use Ask a Librarian
(Links to an external site.)
and be sure to provide your information to have the transcript emailed to you. create an annotated bibliography with the help of an annotated bibliography libguide. This libguide can help with social justice research

too.
Create an annotated bibliography with at least 5 sources that includes:
A citation for the source done in the chosen citation style (APA, MLA, etc.)
A summary of the source: one or two sentences describing the source-what information it covers and the purpose of the source.
An evaluation of the sources: this can include an assessment of the expertise of the author, an evaluation of the scope of the work, etc. Is the source useful? Current? Reliable? Authoritative? Accurate? Fact or opinion? Also, include an assessment on the significance of the source as it relates to your topic/how it will be useful to your Final Project. Usually this type of evaluation is two to three sentences long.
Add your Ask a Librarian transcript to the end of the document.
Remember what information you are needing to research by reviewing the final project requirements:
Overview *Use Ask a Librarian
Rationale (This does not necessarily have to come from research)
Stance: At least 4 reasons for your stance *Use Ask a Librarian
Fair Minded Critical Thinking: (This does not necessarily have to come from research)
Detractors: (Most of this comes from my slides on reliable sources/fake news, your background knowledge, or an Internet search)
Help Section: (This could just be a simple Internet search)
Source section (This is where you will put the sources you will use that are you are finding now. You may need to find additional sources/more than 5 when completing your Final Project.)
About the author
Research Tips
Take your research question (issue) and pull out the key terms. Next, generate a list of synonyms and other related words. You have now expanded your search terms (think Boolean operators) for research and opportunities to find research on your topic and areas related to your topic!
Once you find sources, determine if you need/want to read the entire text:
Look at the source. Is this a scholarly source?
(Links to an external site.)
Examples:
Research/Empirical
Article reporting on the results of one or more studies or experiments, written by the person(s) who conducted the research. This is considered one type of primary source. Look in the title or abstract for words like study, research, measure, subjects, data, effects, survey, or statistical which might indicate empirical research.
Professional Communication
Most scholarly journals publish articles that pertain to the workings of the profession but are not ‘scholarly’ in nature. Examples are book reviews and letters to the editor.
Meta-Analysis
A meta-analysis is a mathematical synthesis of the results of two or more primary studies that addressed the same hypothesis in the same way.
Letters of Communication
Short descriptions of important latest study or research findings which are usually considered urgent for immediate publication. Examples: breakthroughs regarding cures or treatments for previously incurable conditions, or cure for a particular outbreak of disease, like for example swine flu.
To save time in reading research:
Skim/scan the text features (title, headings, bold/italicized words, visual aids, etc.) to determine if this source is a good fit for your research question/issue.
Read the abstract (if there is one) and the beginning paragraph and last paragraph. These are the areas an author will put his/her thesis/central idea.
Based on 1 and 2, determine if the text is related to your issue and whether or not you need to spend the time to read the entire text.
