Writing Assignment: APA Style Annotated Bibliography (“School Reform”)
Due Date: 2/20, on Canvas (Peer Review: 2/18)
Word Limit: N/A (approximately 4 pages)
Instructions: First, write a clear library research question. Then spend several hours finding at least 20 potential sources. (Your final list will be shorter.) Read the abstracts/previews, and keep a written record of your online “paper trail”. Select the best, most credible, and relevant sources to create an APA style annotated bibliography on your topic (See required sources, below).
For the bibliography, write a very brief introduction of 3-5 sentences, stating the “problem” and the “reform” that you are studying. Write the sources list in APA citation style. Write your annotations under each source’s citation. Each annotation consists of 4 parts: (a) APA Citation; (b) Very brief summary in your own words; (c) Evaluation of each source for relevance to your project; and (d) evaluation of each source for credibility. In your introduction and annotations, avoid plagiarizing: do not, in any case, use quotations in an annotation; use your own words. As you summarize DO NOT copy others’ writing inadvertently.
Your final list of sources must include at least the following:
• At least 4 scholarly, recent peer reviewed journal articles
• At least one recent, scholarly or professional book chapter (or whole book).
• One current government (.gov) webpage or one current academic (.edu) webpage
Avoid: popular literature, non-credible authors, out-of-date sources, literature reviews, and sensationalized rhetoric. Find this through internet directly (harder to access through library).
Purpose: Enhance library skills to find and evaluate sources for credibility and relevance. Practice APA style. Create a clear research question. Expand writing process. Improve time management and organization for research. Practice academic integrity. Improve skill in writing concise annotations.
