Assignment: Annotated Bibliography
Throughout the program, you will compile a list of resources you find as you complete assignments. This will be a resource for your Final Project and good preparation for your doctoral study, capstone, or dissertation. By the end of the program, you will have a significant amount of resources to help guide your doctoral study, capstone, or dissertation.
There are several free online tools that can help you manage and easily update your annotated bibliography as you collect your research over the course of the program. Citelighter, Google Docs, Dropbox, and Pathbrite are reliable options to consider. If you know of other useful cloud storage and document sharing tools, please share them with your colleagues in the Class Café.
To begin your annotated bibliography, find two articles that address educational laws governing employment practices in educational settings, and two articles addressing laws and policies guiding the practices of financial resources. Add an annotation for each article to your bibliography. Refer to the Learning Resources for an example annotated bibliography (see attachment below).
Basics of Annotated Bibliographies
An annotated bibliography is a combination of the words annotation and bibliography. An annotation is a set of notes, comments, or critiques. A bibliography is list of references that helps a reader identify sources of information. An annotated bibliography is a list of references that not only identifies the sources of information but also includes information such as a summary, a critique or analysis, and an application of those sources’ information.
Note: The instructor is very strict with APA 6th edition formatting. Please use correct APA formatting and proper reference and citation formatting. If you are not sure please google how to correctly format your references. Do not forget to list your references and you must include the in-text citations. Also please use current (meaning within the past 2 years) scholarly journal articles as references. Thanks.
