Follow the directions below for the completion of the Annotated Bibliography assignment for Unit III. If you have questions, please email your professor for assistance.

You may submit writing assignments to the Success Center by using a
“Writing Center Request form” located on the myCSU Student Portal. To submit a “Writing Center Request form,” log into the myCSU Student Portal, click on “Success Center,” and then click on “Tutoring.” If you have questions concerning APA or your writing assignment, you can contact the Success Center at or by phone at ext. 6538.
The purpose of the Annotated Bibliography is to summarize the sources that you have gathered to support your Research Proposal project. These summaries help you to think about the complex arguments presented in your sources and the massive information therein in terms of short, digestible articulations. In addition, these summaries will likely form the basis for Draft 1 of your Research Paper (the review of literature) that you will complete in Unit IV, which is largely comprised of summaries that are transitioned together and that form a conversation about the issue.
In this assignment, you will create an Annotated Bibliography consisting of five sources. Each entry will consist of a reference list citation that precedes a 100-150 word summary of the source. If each of the five entries is less than the word count, it is likely you have not fully developed your summary, and this lack of development can severely impact your grade for this assignment. Your Annotated Bibliography will include the elements listed below.
Your Annotated Bibliography must contain specific elements. Your grade is largely based on your inclusion of these elements, as well as your ability to summarize your sources. For assistance, you may want to refer to the example in Chapter 20, Section 20f, of
Strategies for Writing Successful Research Papers (pp. 436-438). The elements include the following.
