Annotated Bibliography An annotated bibliography is a list of references to articles, books, and other resources. Each reference is followed by the annotation, which is a brief description and evaluation of the resource. This may summarize the information, evaluate if the information is correct, review the author’s authority on the topic, describe how the information is related to the topic, etc. Often, an annotated bibliography is quite lengthy (maybe hundreds of pages) and contains an introduction, the references themselves, and an index. Please see the PowerPoint presentation in the course for more information. Prepare an annotated bibliography for your chosen topic; it will be the topic you chose for your dissertation. Find at least 15 new resources that relate to your topic; Consider if each resource is relative to your topic and if it is reliable. Each resource should be from a scholarly work such as a professional journal and be dated within last 10 years. Include at least one book and one journal article.
Be sure that you do not use more than two articles from one journal issue. Cite each reference using APA style. For each source write an annotation that summarizes the information, evaluates if the information is correct, reviews the author’s authority on the topic, and describes how the information is related to the topic. Then, go back and write a brief introduction to the annotated bibliography, which introduces the topic and summarizes the information you located; include your reflection on the process of preparing the annotated bibliography. Clearly present your statement of the problem in your introduction. My topic is to research whether increased academic advising and tutoring leads to better student success/community college graduation rates? Each response to each Annotated Bibliography must adhere to the topic and the above-listed directions. I have attached the list of Annotated Bibliography entries which must be used, read and referenced in the annotations. See attachment. All work must be APA formatted for Annotated Bibliography.
