An Annotated Bibliography is a summary or evaluation of sources. The summary typically contains a discussion on the point of the book or article, an evaluation of the source, and finally a reflection. For this assignment, you will create an annotated bibliography of 6 research articles from peer-reviewed or scholarly sources that relate to your topic as defined in the Unit 1 assignment. The topic is (Correlation between Extracurricular Activities and Academic Performance).   You will be able to use this assignment to write your literature review which is due at the end of this Unit.

To get started on this assignment first read Chapter 2: Types of Sources, Chapter 5: Search Tools, Chapter 6: Evaluating Sources, and Chapter 8: How to Cite Sources from your Citing Sources (2020) textbook. As you read through the chapters, be sure to view the embedded video clips within the chapters. For a sample of an Annotated Bibliography refer to the Purdue Online Writing Lab (n.d.) Annotated Bibliography Samples. Be sure to scroll down to the APA example.

Next, (if you have access) watch the optional video from UWlibraries which will provide you an explanation and examples of what a scholarly article includes.

Note: there are two parts to this assignment.

Part One: Conduct a scholarly search for 6 peer-reviewed or scholarly sources based on your chosen topic from Unit 1.

Part Two: Create an Annotated Bibliography (should be in list format) of 6 sources related to your topic from Unit 1. Your Annotated Bibliography should include:

1. The full APA citation for the source including the web link.

2. In one paragraph, for each source

  •  
    • Discuss the point or main thesis of the source.
    • Evaluate the source for reliability and how it compares to other sources in your Annotated Bibliography.
    • Analyze the source for its relevance to your study.

Your Discussion should be a minimum of 250 words in length and not more than 450 words. Please include a word count. Following the APA standard, use references and in-text citations for the textbook and any other sources.
