UCI Nutrition & Physical Activity in Obesity Prevention Annotated Bibliography

University of California Irvine

Question Description

Your Topic (Requirement is in the PDF)

Your topic should be related to some aspect of health or human performance. Better does a good job of addressing some of the issues related to hospitals and public health, and you may use it as inspiration, but your topic does not necessarily need to center on hospitals or surgeons.

Basic requirements:

  • 1500-2000 words (this is about 6-8 pages)
  • MLA format
  • 6-8 reputable sources, at least two of which should be scholarly (peer reviewed journal articles or books from academic publishers)

Remember that you will not receive a grade for your final CP if you have not turned in your process work, including the Annotated bibliography and drafts.

First of all, should choose a topic for this future CP paper, everything about the CP projeect is been uploaded by pdf, and then only do the annotated bibliograpghy.

The Annotated Bibliography is a list of the 6 or more sources you will use in writing your CP. Each source must be distinct from the others, and the whole project should illustrate a variety of perspectives that illuminate the nuances of your problem. For each source, you should list the full bibliographic information in MLA format followed by paragraph (minimum 150 words) that

  • summarizes what the source says, focusing on the information you intend to include in your CP,
  • evaluates its currency, relevancy, authority, and accuracy,
  • and explains how it's different from your other sources—what it contributes that they don't.

When you're done, your document should have at least 6 sources (at least 2 must be scholarly) and 6 paragraphs. If you take it seriously and give it substantial thought, you'll find that it's extremely useful once you sit down to write your paper.

Research Project Part One: Contexts Two major assignments comprise the research project: Part One: Contexts (CP) and Part Two: Advocacy (AP). This first assignment, the CP, asks you to ​(1) research and deploy various types of sources to describe, contextualize, and analyze a significant contemporary political/social/cultural problem; (2)​ ​summarize and evaluate conversations and debates happening between credible scholars, thinkers, and organizations about your topic. Together, the actions above comprise expository writing—the guiding method of this project—which means simply that with this first composition you are attempting to describe your project's central problem and explain its relevance by contextualizing it. Why “contexts”? An informed, authoritative writer understands their topic in context. ​Context can be historical.​ Analyzing the past means grappling not simply with events, but with the issues and concerns of the time. It’s not enough to read a contemporary account of the past; we must also look at the work produced in the past—its political speeches, court decisions, and media. Therefore, one goal of this assignment is to learn about the historical contexts of your problem: the laws, legal precedents, and institutional practices that underlie its current form, and economic, social, political, and/or environmental trends that have shaped its development. Context can also be rhetorical.​ We want to present the stakes that a given community has in the topic of our research, but we also want to interrogate the way those stakes get articulated by journalists, researchers, and politicians. Even within “scholarly writing,” you should become aware of how various communities (called disciplines) frame the same topic quite differently from one another. Identifying these relevant communities of thinkers and writers, analyzing their perspectives, and bringing their views together will help you gain a comprehensive understanding of your problem, and the authority that understanding entails. As you research for your CP, you will concurrently develop a Working​ ​Annotated Bibliography​ for your entire project that involves summarizing and analyzing individual sources (your instructor will provide you with separate instructions for this portion of the assignment). By the time you complete the CP, you should be able to: ● Develop effective research note-taking habits through source annotations. ● Practice information literacy in the research process by locating and critically evaluating relevant and credible evidence from a variety of sources and genres. ● Understand research as a part of the larger composition process of prewriting, drafting, and revision. ● Collaborate with fellow researchers to give and receive constructive feedback on the work in progress. ● Plan, draft and revise an essay with organization and style appropriate for addressing a general academic audience. ● Arrange and integrate evidence—primary-source, secondary-source, and multimodal—intentionally, with particular attention to its argumentative purpose and rhetorical effect. ● Integrate and cite evidence in a transparent and ethical manner, using a standard citation system. Learn how and why to avoid plagiarism and patch-writing. Assignment Requirements Process work​ is required to be eligible to submit a final draft for a grade. This may include but is not limited to topic development exercises, a proposal or prospectus, and multiple essay drafts. Late or incomplete process work may result in a grade penalty on the final draft. The contextualizing in the CP must be supported by a broad and varied selection of ​research​, including primary and secondary sources, scholarship, journalism, policy papers, reports, case law, and other sources as appropriate for your topic. While both you and your instructor will work to determine an appropriate scope and variety of research for your essay, at a minimum it should draw evidence from ​6-8 sources, including TWO scholars in conversation. ​Keep in mind that the total number of sources for the entire project’s bibliography is 15-20 sources. Your final submission for Part One should be a ​1500-2000 word​ ​multimodal​ composition​. It should be formatted in ​MLA style​, with parenthetical citations, a Works Cited page, and a descriptive academic title. ...
