Assignment – Annotated Bibliography

I need support with this English question so I can learn better.

this week we’re going to begin planning for our final paper. To begin, start thinking about a topic for our final persuasive essay. You learned about persuasive writing during this week’s lecture – and we’ll get into more details about the essay in the coming weeks – but for now, let’s focus on two areas:

  1. Locate five sources that will be helpful in the research of your final paper. You’re going to submit these sources in the form of an annotated bibliography. “Annotation” is another word for “notes.” Using APA formatting, write the name of the source. Directly below the source, write an annotation of approximately 100-125 words. In the following links you will find some examples of annotated bibliographies.

Here are some resources for an annotated bibliography: You will need to use Noodletools for your Annotated Bibliography.

Assignment: Annotated Bibliography

Assignment: Annotated Bibliography

The following course outcome is addressed in this Assignment:
Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of various qualitative and quantitative research methods used in psychological research.
For this Assignment, you will write an annotated bibliography using a minimum of three different scholarly sources from the University Library (I can give you access to this OR send you the

articles, whichever you prefer). To help you get started, you can use the different studies that are in Question #1 & 2. It is recommended that all of these articles be related to the topic that you

will be doing your research proposal on: the articles annotated here can be those used as part of the background material in the research proposal. Be sure to choose actual scientific studies

(not meta-analyses or literature reviews on a topic) that provide for a different perspective on your topic.
An annotated bibliography for research includes a listing of citations for each different source of information with each citation followed by a brief description of the study and a critical

analysis of the research. The purpose of an annotated bibliography is to help the researcher make sense of the many conflicting and sometimes contradictory results. Most researchers group

the different studies together by topic or themes in order to see if a particular pattern emerges. Hopefully, you will begin to see this in your bibliography.
Upon completion, an annotated bibliography helps the researcher gain an understanding of the entire body of research on a particular subject (i.e., not just one study). In other words, putting

together an annotated bibliography helps the researcher to get a broader sense of the results of many different studies on the same subject. In addition, an idea of how the different studies

connect to one another and the important themes that are related to a topic often emerge in this process. This is an important first step to take when attempting to develop quality research

questions and hypotheses.
Assignment Directions
1.    Select a minimum of three and no more than five different research reports on a relevant topic of interest in the field of psychology. Make sure that you are using scholarly sources in

your bibliography (e.g., peer-reviewed journal articles- I can get these for you, academic books, etc.). In addition, make sure that your sources are current (published within the last five years).
2.    At the beginning of the Assignment, please include a statement (one or two sentences) indicating what topic or concept connects the articles summarized. The research question that

you are considering would be an excellent thing to include here.
3.    Start off each entry in the annotated bibliography with the full text citation for each study in boldface . Be sure to list the different sources in alphabetical order as one would do in a

references section for a paper.
4.    Immediately after each full text citation, summarize the following details from the cited source:
•    A brief description of the research questions and hypotheses
•    The method and any criticisms you have of the method
•    The results
•    The conclusions made by the authors and any concerns that you may have regarding these conclusions
•    A critical analysis of the quality and credibility of the study and author(s)
•    How this study connects to or contrasts with other studies on this subject (especially those other articles in your annotated bibliography)
•    An explanation of how this study will shed new light on your topic
5.    Make sure to provide enough details for the reader to get a clear sense of the study. Ideally you will have two “paragraphs:” the first covering the first four bullet points above, the

second covering the remaining three.
6.    After the three to five articles have been listed and annotated, end the Assignment with a couple of paragraphs describing how the process of putting together an annotated

bibliography helps researchers to develop quality research questions and hypotheses.
Length: 3–5 pages.
The Assignment should:
•    Follow Assignment directions (review grading rubric for best results).
•    Use correct APA formatting per the APA Publication Manual, 6th Edition (however, an abstract is not needed).
•    Demonstrate college-level communication through the composition of original materials in Standard American English.
•    Be written in Standard American English and be clear, specific, and error-free.
