Week 7 Annotated Bibliographies

To make sure this week’s assignment is in the correct formatting, review the APA Annotated Bibliography sample provided by OWL Purdue.

Also a great source:
Creating APA Style Annotated Bibliographies, 6th Ed. Bethel University
from this source: “An annotation is different from an abstract. It should have several sentences summarizing the main points or ideas found in the item. It should then include your own statement evaluating the quality of the item and/or relating the item to your own research topic.”

You should have a total of 6 total sources for your Annotated Bibliography,
Focus on these points for the week:

What have you found through your research?
          What is the question your research has pointed you too?
          3 of the 6 journals.
          Up to 4 sources from previous assignments.
          Research your articles? Something in the field authors point too?

With all that you have learned throughout this class you may have found new articles that better reflect your new research abilities or new materials that are more closely related to your topic. You should expand on your previous weeks and find two new articles or books more closely related with the research question. 

REMINDER: NO BULLET STYLE RESEARCH NOTES THIS WEEK! Your research notes should be written into the second half of your paragraph or break into a second paragraph. The start of each paragraph should be an overview of the document and why it was selected and the second paragraph your CRAAP research notes

  1. Good morning professor, I guess was a little confused on the Annotated Bibliography, in the assignment instructions it stated "Your overall assessment or evaluation of the source (for this, remember the CRAAP criteria used for previous assignments as well as that outlined in Chapter 6 of your Badke text, pp. 145-147) -- FOR BOOKS AND WEBSITES ONLY (not peer-reviewed journal articles..) The only two references I included the CRAAP criteria on were from ebooks, I wasn't sure if they were considered journal articles or books so I just included the CRAAP criteria in Bibliography thinking they would probably be considered books?
