Assignment #14: Annotated Bibliography (Final Draft)

Task: Compile an annotated bibliography on the topic you chose for your client report.-vaping

• A bibliography is a list of good secondary research sources for your topic. A bibliography is just a list of citations.
When a bibliography is “annotated,” that means that information is added to each citation, such as a summary or an evaluation.
• There are many different ways to write an annotated bibliography. If you did one in Comp I, it might not be exactly what we’re doing in this class. So, follow these directions; don’t rely just on past experiences!
• Important: Your annotated bibliography must have at least eight different sources (citations) on it. More is fine, of course.
• Important: All of your secondary research articles must be credible. That means they need to come from credible publications, and they need to be college-level. Review the “Credible Sources” handout on the Research Handouts link.
• Important: At least two of your sources need to have been found using the research databases on the Carlson Library research database link. If you are unfamiliar with these databases, there is an instruction sheet posted on the Research Handouts link.
• Obviously both the rough draft and the final draft of your bibliography must be typed.
• As you know from the Assignment #19 instructions, you may use MLA or APA for the citations.
• Each entry on your annotated bibliography will have three parts:
1) The MLA or APA citation
2) A brief summary (at least five sentences). Important:Make sure you write the summary in your own words. Don’t plagiarize from the abstract or article!
3) A bullet list of REAL research you pulled from the article. Each bullet list must have at least four bullets. More is fine.

• Important:What do I mean by REAL research? I mean a statistic or some other numerical piece of data. Or you could use an opinion from an expert, but not the author of the article. The expert would have to be someone that the author of the article quoted.
• What kinds of things can’t be on your bullet list: statements that are common knowledge and statements that are opinions of the writer of the article.
• In the box below there is a sample of what an entry should look like. Make sure your entries look just like the sample. (Note: This citation is an APA citation.)

Sample entry:

Smith, T. (2015). Classifying the world through language: Functional relevance, cultural
significance, and category name learning. International Journal of Intercultural
Relations, 19(2), 161-181. Retrieved from http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/

Summary of article: This article gives a general overview of language study worldwide, primarily in the 21st century. The article has quite a few statistics concerning language study in various countries. Generally, the statistics show that English-speaking countries such as the United States, Ireland, and the United Kingdom are less likely to require second language study. On the other hand, if a country’s native language is not English, they are much more likely to require second language study in school, and English is very likely to be the second language that is taught. So, it seems that English is seen by some as sort of the “universal” language.

Research Points from article:
• According to Pew Research, in 2010, 90% of European secondary school students studied a second language, and 73% of European elementary students studied English as a second language.
• According to the ACTFL, 15% of U.S. elementary school students study a second language.
• In 2008, 18.5% of U.S. elementary and secondary students combined were studying a second language.
• 21 European countries require their secondary school students to study two second languages.
• In 2008, the Center for Applied Linguistics survey showed that the most popular secondary language to study in school is Spanish.
• 65.9% of United Kingdom residents speak only their native English.

How to Submit Assignments #13 and #14:
As always, you can use the Blackboard Drop Box or email the Word file to me.

There are no points earned for submitting Assignment #13. What you do earn is feedback so you can revise the rough draft and earn a higher grade on the final draft (Assignment #14).

Assignment #14 (the final draft of the annotated bibliography) is worth 25 points. I will be assessing six things:
1) The quality of your secondary research sources.
2) The correctness of the page layout
3) The correctness of each APA citation
4) The accuracy and clarity of the summary
5) That the summary is written in your own words, not copied from the article or article abstract
6) The quality of the bullet list items (that they’re REAL empirical research, not common knowledge)
