carry out a review of the literature around the topic
Based on the topic and theoretical lens you have chosen in Unit Four, carry out a review of the literature around the topic selected and generate an annotated bibliography.
Gather and assess five scholarly research articles relevant to your topic, compiling these articles into an annotated bibliography.
Annotated bibliographies are comprised of a brief summary of the article and a discussion and assessment of how the article will contribute to the research project.
These five sources must be scholarly sources of original research, such as journal articles and books.
Although students may use relevant course readings for their research projects, the annotated bibliographies must not include course readings.
Each annotated bibliography should be approximately 150 – 200 words per entry (total 750 – 1000 words).
Annotated bibliographies must be written according to academic standards of scholarship and referencing using APA.
There are many helpful university-based websites, including the following, to help students prepare their annotated bibliographies:
