Research Paper: Annotated Bibliography Instructions
The Annotated Bibliography is designed to assist you with your Research Paper references, to teach you how to search for scholarly journal articles, and to give you practice using proper in-text citations.
For this assignment, you will be annotating 4 scholarly (peer-reviewed) journal articles. You will select 2 articles that support Behavioral Learning Theory in the research, and 2 that support Cognitive Learning Theory. Choose articles that have been published within the last 10 years. It is recommended that you read and review the Research Paper: Final Submission Instructions at this point.
Your Annotated Bibliography must have at least 150 words per summary for each of the 4 articles you selected. You will list your first reference, then a review of the article, then the next reference, then a review of that article, etc. This assignment does not need to include a title page, abstract page, or reference page. However, each reference must be listed in current APA format before the 150-word review.
Each annotation must provide a general summary and also state a rationale as to why you chose to include it in your paper. You must paraphrase; do not include any direct quotes. Do not cite other sources outside of the article that you are reviewing.
