We are working toward the final paper in week 9. This week we will compile the research for that final paper in what is called an annotated bibliography.
For this assignment, submit an annotated bibliography in APA format.
Your final Annotated Bibliography will have 7 sources listed. Of those,
- at least 3 will be academic journal article sources, retrieved from the school or a public library
- at least 2 will be book-length, either physical books or ebooks from the Library or online
- at least 2 will be an online media source, such as a YouTube video, podcast, or interactive presentation
Submit this assignment with a cover page in APA format, double spaced, 12 pt. times new roman. The reference for each annotation should be in APA format. The annotations for each reference should be at least 150 words.
An annotated bibliography provides specific information about each source you have used. As a researcher, you have become an expert on your topic and have the ability both to explain the content and to assess the usefulness of your sources for those not in the know. Think of your paper as part of a conversation with others interested in the same things you are; the annotated bibliography allows you to tell readers what to check out, what might be worth checking out in some situations, and what might not be worth spending the time on. It’s kind of like providing a list of good movies for your classmates to watch and then going over the list with them, telling them why this movie is better than that one or why one student in your class might like a particular movie better than another student would. You want to give your audience enough information to understand basically what the movies are about and to make an informed decision about where to spend their money based on their interests” (“Annotated Bibliography”).
