sources you deem relevant to your problem statement

Develop an annotated bibliography for use in your research paper. The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate progress in compiling research and to indicate a methodology for organizing research sources.

Recommended: Before you begin, review chapters 4–6 in A Pocket Style Manual (APA).

Include the following in your annotated bibliography:

  • APA citations and annotations for three (3) sources you deem relevant to your problem statement (thesis).

For each source:

  • Cite the source in proper APA format. The citations should be organized in alphabetical order by author as in an APA References page.
  • Follow with a brief annotation that summarizes the source (approximately 3–5 sentences). You may quote from the source, but do not copy and paste from the abstract.
  • In 1 or 2 sentences, explain and evaluate the source’s relevance and significance to your research.
  • Use an academic tone and style.

Review the rubric for further information on how your assignment will be graded. Include a copy of your working thesis statement at the top of your assignment submission.

Please note: Next week, you will be required to find three additional peer sources for your research paper in order to create a full annotated bibliography, for a total of six sources and annotations.
