Assignment 2 – Annotated Bibliography

Assignment 2 – Annotated Bibliography


Using the information from this week’s reading material, submit an Annotated Bibliography of five (5) sources from your working bibliography. First, put the source in the correct citation format for your particular curricular division, and then write a brief annotation of that source.  The annotation should describe the main ideas covered in the source as well as an evaluation by you for the source’s usefulness for your project. The value of the source to your project should be included, as well as information about the credentials of the author(s).
Remember that an online source can be a number of things. It can be a book, journal article, blog, podcast script, website, government report, newspaper article or editorial, or something else. Be sure to analyze each source carefully and follow the style guide in presenting the needed info.  One goal in your annotation is to help your readers find the source if they want more information, so make it easy for them to do so.

Your final paper must include a minimum of seven (7) sources with at least four (4) sources coming from peer-reviewed journals taken from the APUS library.   Please note that you are encouraged to include all four (4) of your sources coming from peer-reviewed journals taken from the APUS library in this annotated bibliography.

Calkins, Lucy.  Raising Lifelong Learners: A Parent’s Guide.  Reading: Addison-Wesley
Longman.  1997.  Print.

Lucy Calkins is a noted teacher and researcher in reading and writing. Her book is a guide for parents, helping them to work with their children’s schools to create a positive learning environment and a lifelong love of learning in their children.  Topics covered include fostering learning and curiosity in mathematics, science, social studies, reading, and writing.  Calkins’ work also offers advice on school curriculum and testing. By providing specific examples of parental involvement, this book will help support my assertion that parents need to play a strong role in their children’s education.

Both MLA and APA styles use a hanging indent and double-spacing for each entry at the end of the paper. Please be sure to check your work with a current style guide, such as those in the APUS Library. You are encouraged to review the rubric for grading criteria: COLL Annotated Bibliography
