You may use examples, but you will still need to include a full scholarly definition of each, with commentary. You may use any scholarly source other than a dictionary, to include online video lectures.
You may use Wikipedia as a starting point, but be aware that Wikipedia is not a scholarly source and therefore can never be quoted in your paper. You will need to include inline citations in your essay (last name, date, pg#) and must cite any sources in the reference list of your essay.
If you include an inline citation, there must be a corresponding entry in the reference list and vice versa. You can find tools and examples of APA citation formats at the Purdue University Online Writing Lab.
An annotated bibliography is a list of scholarly works that one might use to prepare to write an essay or book. This is not a reference list or works cited attachment that you might include in an essay.
Instead, this is a preparatory research document. Its express purpose is to find suitably rigorous, topical, usable articles and books to prepare for the writing of a book or essay. The format is similar to an essay’s reference list, but it differs in several significant ways.
The American Psychological Association (APA) created a formal guide for exactly how to format your bibliography so that it is useful to a reader who wants to follow your line of reasoning. This is extremely important in academic work because it shows that you performed your due diligence and proper research before setting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard as the case may be).
Annotations to a bibliography are short summaries of the content of the work. For this assignment, you are specifically showing me that you actually read the article, book chapter, or whatever else by doing these summaries. Each annotation needs to be long enough to convey confidence that you know what’s going on; about 100 words or so should do it.
Your bibliography must include 5 citations and their associated annotations. Each combined citation/annotation entry is worth 20 points. These points are based on your proper formatting of the citation, inclusion of all necessary elements, proper selection of a scholarly work, and reasonable and understandable annotation write-up.
