The purpose of this assignment is to keep your group on-track for gathering and assessing sources relevant to your myth. It will help your group ensure that you are relying on sources of a sufficient quality. By writing this bibliography, your group will be forced to critically think about the sources you’re choosing and why you are choosing them. This will help your group determine which sources are the best and most important for ‘busting’ your myth. Hopefully this assignment will result in better final presentations. Annotated Bibliography.
About Annotated Bibliographies
What is an annotated bibliography? What distinguishes an annotated bibliography from other types of references is that after citing each source, the writer provides a brief (usually about a 150 word paragraph) description and evaluation, the annotation. The annotation informs the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources.
Why write an annotated bibliography? An annotated bibliography can be useful for several reasons. One, it proves you have done valid research informing your group’s final evaluation of your myth. This will improve the quality of your presentation as you will not just be using whatever sources you happen to come across first. Instead, you will be critically evaluating the information provided by your sources and making judgments about what will be most helpful in your endeavor. Specifically, this assignment will ask you to think about the content of your sources, how they fit within the developmental literature on your topic, and how they are relevant to your particular myth. Of course, the ability to do this requires that you have read and thought about the sources you are using.
What is included in an annotated bibliography? Although there are a variety of types of annotated bibliographies, for this class a good annotated bibliography will contain the following elements:
Your bibliography should contain 4 sources. Each entry will be worth 7.5 points as delineated above.
Keep in mind, however, that your final presentations will draw from more sources than you present here (and I would recommend doing a similar evaluation for each). This bibliography should be thought of as a starting point, which highlights the most important or foundational sources for your mythbusting.
Choose your group’s 4 best sources. Use the 4 bullet points above to type up your bibliography. Turn in only ONE copy per group. Submissions should be written, double-spaced, in 12 pt font and written in APA style. Bibliographies will most likely average 3 pages in length, assuming each entry is a paragraph about 200 words long. Please follow general grammar and mechanical guidelines.
