EN3220: Module 4 Hidden Assumptions and Research

Research 4.1

Building an Annotated Bibliography

1

Before embarking on your final project, it is important to have a strong list of sources. These sources will

help you develop and expand your ideas and also support your points in the longer paper. Building an

Annotated Bibliography will help you find credible sources and understand how they will be useful in your

project.

Assessment Directions:

In this assessment, you will:

1. Find five credible sources that support your position on the topic you have chosen in Project Part 1.

2. Then, list these sources in APA format.

3. After each citation, include four short paragraphs about each source.

4. Include an APA title page and then make sure that this assignment is presented in this format.

APA citation for source 1

 Paragraph 1: Summarize the source

 Paragraph 2: Analyze the source

 Paragraph 3: Discuss how you will specifically use the source

 Paragraph 4: Discuss what you will use this source for

Follow the same format for each source.

Be sure to cover the main points of the source, consider if it is simple—pushes only one main point—or

complex—argues for several points at once—and analyze it for bias.

Submission Requirements:

You are expected to follow a block pattern of organization, where you answer all three areas of the

assignment for each source at a time. This pattern of organizing information will ensure that all parts of the

assignment are covered, and the reader can clearly see why each source is credible or non-credible.
