Task 1: Annotated Bibliography

 

The first stages of the research writing process involve topic selection, formulation of a research question, preliminary research, and the development of a working thesis statement. Now you will begin identifying and evaluating sources to determine how effectively they can support your argument. If needed, the “Topic Ideas” web link below can be used for selecting your research topic. For this task, you will create an annotated bibliography by finding 8-10 sources for your research paper, listing the sources in APA-formatted references, and providing an annotation for each source. Each annotation should offer a summary of the source, an evaluation of its author’s or publisher’s credibility, and an assessment of its relevance to your topic.

REQUIREMENTS

Your submission must be your original work. No more than a combined total of 30% of the submission and no more than a 10% match to any one individual source can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. An originality report is provided when you submit your task that can be used as a guide.

 

You must use the rubric to direct the creation of your submission because it provides detailed criteria that will be used to evaluate your work. Each requirement below may be evaluated by more than one rubric aspect. The rubric aspect titles may contain hyperlinks to relevant portions of the course.

 

Note: When using sources to support ideas and elements in an assessment, the submission MUST include APA formatted in-text citations with a corresponding reference list for any direct quotes or paraphrasing. It is not necessary to list sources that were consulted if they have not been quoted or paraphrased in the text of the assessment. 

 

A.  Compose an appropriate, arguable thesis statement that previews two to four main points and that you plan to use in your research paper.

B.  Create an annotated bibliography of eight to ten appropriate, credible sources that you plan to use in your research paper.

Note: You may use the attached “Annotated Bibliography Template” to complete your annotated bibliography, but use of the attached template is not required.

1.  Provide a full, APA-formatted reference citation for the 8–10 sources.

2.  Provide an annotation (suggested length of 150 words) for each of the 8–10 sources by doing the following:

a.  Summarize the information presented in the source.

b.  Analyze the credibility of the author of the source or of the publication (e.g. journal, publisher, or website), if no author is present.

c.  Analyze the relevance of the source to your chosen research topic.

3.  Write each  annotation in your own words, without the excessive use of direct quotation or extensive paraphrasing, for the 8–10 sources from part B.

C.  Demonstrate professional communication in the content and presentation of your submission.
