Question description

ASSIGNMENT #2 – Annotated Bibliography

To prepare you for the researched-based report assignment, you will need to do some research. One of the more useful tools in conducting research is the annotated bibliography.  An annotated bibliography combines the citations found in the References list at the end of documents in APA format with annotations about each of the sources.  For this assignment, you will construct an annotated bibliography based on the workplace or community issue or problem that you have selected to focus on for the researched-based report. Remember it must be specific and actionable - that is, you must be able to identify an audience for your proposal that could realistically respond to your idea.  

Purpose:  An annotated bibliography is an organizing tool that is helpful when working on a research project.  An effective annotated bibliography is used to compile research sources in one location and provide the researcher with quick access to the information contained in each source. 

Content/Subject: Your annotated bibliography will consist of the sources that you have deemed relevant to your topic and/or question(s) of inquiry.  While you may encounter sources that are not relevant or do not fit the scope of your project while researching, for the purposes of this assignment, you will only include the ones that you find useful and relevant. 

  1.     Cite the source in proper APA format.  The citations should be organized in alphabetical order by author just as in an APA References page. 
  2.     Follow the citation with a brief annotation that summarizes the source and explains how it will be used in your researched proposal (no fewer than 100 words, no more than 150). Annotations are in your own words.  Do NOT quote from the source.  Do not repeat the title of the source or the author - your reader can see that.  

Constraints:  The annotated bibliography is a fairly rigid genre.  Your citations must adhere to APA format.  This will be one of the central components of the grade for this assignment.  Failure to follow APA format exactly will harm your grade.  The model I provided from Kathy Smith will help guide you.
