This should be just a single page. 275 WORDS with 1 source
You must upload this assignment an approved file format just like your other assignments. You must post your two annotated citations on this assignment. Please make sure you use a style format such as MLA or APA. Many university citations cut-and-pasted from the library resources are NOT in the correct format. They are often in all uppercase letters or worse. The assignment is designed so that the student will learn how to do scholarly research in the University Library as compared with merely finding information through Google or Wikipedia. You will learn what constitutes a peer-reviewed source and gain skill in using the schools Library search engine to locate peer-reviewed articles. You must follow explicit instructions to locate two peer-reviewed resources using the library search engine. Then student then must cut-and-paste-and-edit the citation ((MLA, APA or Chicago style sheet) and write an original summary of the article and post as a report on here (100-300 words). The article must not be one that is listed on the modules for this course already. You must write an original summary. If you merely cut-and-paste the existing abstract for the article, you will lose points. The two citations are worth 60 points (30 points for each) and the abstracts are worth 40 for a total of 100 points. The instructions are also on the home page tab for Part 6. Here are the specific things you need to do: Select two of the topics to research more in-depth: o Women in sport o Bullying on sports teams o Performance of masculinity in sport o Racism in tennis or soccer o Sexualization of sport o The stadium and the community Now you’ll locate two peer-reviewed resources to synthesize. You can do this by going to the school Library home page and putting your key words into the search box. Make sure to check the box for “Scholarly/Peer-Reviewed Articles only” directly underneath the search box. You could also go to USF eJournals (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. or Google Scholar (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., but most students have found journal articles using this method. Purpose of Assignment: Someone asked if it was OK to just cut-and-paste the abstract from the journal article, but I prefer that you use your own words. Otherwise, this final assignment becomes merely a finding exercise and not a reading comprehension task. The intent is for you to experience the process of scholarly research in the field. Annotated citations are part of the literature search that you might do for your Master’s or Doctoral thesis should you decide to go to graduate school. This assignment gives you a small sample of that activity. Note on finding peer-reviewed sources: I find that students at all levels (undergrad/grad) sometimes struggle with the definition and location of peer-reviewed sources. Regardless of their level, to remedy this, I define what a peer-reviewed source is, provide a link to one way of determining whether a source is peer-reviewed and require that their final references indeed come from peer-reviewed sources, i.e. no Wikipedia! (see the note I provide to students about this below): Peer-Reviewed Journal Article – What is this? It is a published research article that has been submitted by its author(s) to a journal for publication, but first reviewed by several other researchers (the “peers”, also known as “referees”) for appropriateness and to meet that field’s standards, in order to obtain approval for publication
