his assignment will be one of several throughout your program that we use to help you to better understand the research process. One of the core competencies necessary to succeed in a graduate program is the ability to identify other research that pertains to your own. This means you’ll have to identify similar research, read the papers, and assimilate prior work into your own research. An annotated bibliography helps you develop and hone these research skills.
This annotated bibliography should specifically focus on the approved topic for your research paper due in Week 15 (*see Topic Selection Worksheet assignment). The resources you select must clearly align with the research topic. This is not expected to be a complete bibliography of every resource that you review in the process of your research. Rather, it should identify and discuss those resources that you found most influential in the development of your research.
You paper must be in correct APA format, use correct grammar, and will need to include at least seven (7) resources, ALL of which must:
1) Be current. Published within the last few years.
2) Be peer-reviewed.
3) Relate directly to your topic
For each annotation, your should provide;
1) the APA formatted reference entry.
2) analysis of the credibility of the resource.
3) justification of the value of the resource to development of your research.
