Introduction: An annotated bibliography allows a writer and/or researcher to view multiple perspectives on a common topic. The annotations verify a source’s relevance, accuracy, and overall use as a research tool. The annotated bibliography contains three parts: (1) the citation, (2) the summary, and (3) the critique of the source. The citation precedes the summary and critique. The summary objectively presents the work’s main points, and the critique evaluates its use, its limitations, and its credibility. Structurally, the summary and critique are sometimes integrated into a single paragraph.
Assignment: For this assignment you will create an annotated bibliography for three academic sources centered around your course theme. These sources must all be from the social sciences, so be sure to use the proper research methods and tools. The annotated bibliography will focus on the social sciences, so please use APA style. When annotating sources, consider the author’s authority on the topic, the currency of the article, use of illustrations (such as charts), and how effectively the source highlights the research theme.
