Annotated Bibliography


Please cite and annotate 2-3 scholarly sources you plan to incorporate into the final draft of your Paper. Please see the Week 3 Supporting Materials and Class Plan for annotation models and how to locate and assess scholarly sources.


Please respond to the following to compose your annotations:
1. Cite the scholarly sources in APA format
2. In 1-2 sentences provide a general overview of the aims/scope of the article or book chapter, e.g., what are the main claims/goals OR what hypothesis does the article test?
3. In 1-2 sentences describe the qualifications of the author(s), e.g., what are their institutional affiliations and/or where was the article or book published?
4. In 1-2 sentences explain the author(s) methodology and briefly cite a passage that supports your annotation of the article or book chapter. (You may want to choose a citation that you can also use in your Paper)
5. In 1-2 sentences, evaluate the relative success of the article or book chapter, e.g., how well did the author(s) meet the goals they established for themselves AND/OR explain how well (or not) the article or chapter will support your research.
