  Annotated Bibliography

One of the more useful tools in conducting research is the annotated bibliography.  An annotated bibliography combines the citations found in the References list at the end of documents in APA format with annotations about each of the sources.  For this assignment, you will construct an annotated bibliography based upon the theme that you selected at the beginning of the semester.

Purpose:  An annotated bibliography is an organizing tool that is helpful when working on a research project.  An effective annotated bibliography is used to compile research sources in one location and provide the researcher with quick access to the information contained in each source.

Audience: This assignment should be directed at your scholarly peers, and you may assume that they have only a casual familiarity with your topic or issue.

Content Requirements:

  1. Citation for your source in APA format.
  2. Paragraph 1—Include a brief annotation that summarizes the source (approx. 5-7 sentences). Do not use quotations. All of the annotation should be in your own words.

Assignment Instructions:

  1. Locate 4 CREDIBLE sources, 3 of which must be scholarly journal articles.
  2. Construct and upload your Annotated Bibliography.

Constraints:  The annotated bibliography is a fairly rigid genre.  Your citations must adhere to APA format.  This will be one of the central components of the grade for this assignment.   Failure to follow APA format exactly will harm your grade.

The annotations for each source should follow an academic style.  This means that you must construct, with elevated and sophisticated language, correct grammatical sentences that effectively summarize what each source has to say.  Additionally, you should explain how each source is relevant to the issue that you have selected and what it adds to your knowledge about your issue.
