the annotated bibliography assignment

I have attached example of the assignment.

This assignment requires you to develop an annotated bibliography on the topic of Teacher Leadership. This will be an analytical annotated bibliography. I have purposefully left the topic very broad, but want you to be more selective of your research articles for this assignment.

An analytical annotated bibliography “not only summarizes the material, it analyzes what is being said. It examines the strengths and weaknesses of what is presented as well as describing the applicability of the author’s conclusions to the research being conducted” (University of Maryland, 2017, pg. 2).

Guidelines for the assignment:

  1. Minimum of 15 sources cited in APA style format. The work should be double-spaced and indented ½ inch so the only type flush left is the author’s last name. List your annotations alphabetically by author. Each annotation should be 100 -200 words.
  2. Use APA style for page set-up, noting the instructions in point 1 above (see example below).
  3. The research cited should be empirical research, published in peer-reviewed journals that provide you with the information needed to complete point 4 below.
  4. The annotation should contain the following parts:
    1. Citation of the work
    2. Brief summary of the article
    3. Author’s purpose for the research
    4. Research methodology
    5. Strengths, weaknesses, biases of the research
    6. Statement of how you could use this research to support your own research
