Unit V Mini Project







Building Block II: By now you should have submitted your topic for approval. In this assignment, you will submit one assignment with two parts: an annotated bibliography and a reference page.





The annotated bibliography should have at least six primary references to support your Exploratory Paper. These sources may be books or articles from scholarly works, professional journals, or government agencies. Websites should not be utilized for this assignment unless they contain a scholarly article. Please contact your professor if you are unsure of the appropriateness of the work.




An annotated bibliography examines scholarly articles and books on a certain issue and provides a summary of each. The purpose is to offer an overview of the literature on a topic. Each source you choose should be cited using APA style.




Before beginning the annotated bibliography, decide if you will group the articles/books by date (in chronological order) or by issue/trend. Once decided, the annotations for each article/book should include a summary. The summary should answer these questions.




1. What are the main arguments?




2. What is the point of this book or article?




3. What topics are covered?




These summaries are written in paragraph form with most being one to two paragraphs in length, and they should follow the reference entry.
