Annotated Bibliography

The first stages of the research writing process involve topic selection, formulation of a research question,
preliminary research, and the development of a working thesis statement. Now you will begin identifying and
evaluating sources to determine how effectively they can support your argument. If needed, the “Topic Ideas”
web link below can be used for selecting your research topic.
For this task, you will create an annotated bibliography by finding 8-10 sources for your research paper,
listing the sources in APA-formatted references, and providing an annotation for each source. Each
annotation should offer a summary of the source, an evaluation of its author’s or publisher’s credibility, and
an assessment of its relevance to your topic.
