Assignment: Annotated Bibliography

Annotated Bibliography

 

This annotated bibliography will consist of an introduction, followed by two quantitative article annotations, two qualitative article annotations, and two mixed methods article annotations for a total of six annotations, followed by a conclusion.

 

An annotated bibliography is a document containing selected sources accompanied by a respective annotation. Each annotation consists of a summary, analysis, and application for the purpose of conveying the relevance and value of the selected source. As such, annotations demonstrate a writer’s critical thinking about and authority on the topic represented in the sources.

 

In preparation for your own future research, an annotated bibliography provides a background for understanding a portion of the existing literature on a particular topic. It is also a useful precursor for gathering sources in preparation for writing a subsequent literature review.

** Interest of topic is Special Education you can also use the learning resources and required media.

 

 

 

· Use the Walden library databases to search for quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research articles from peer-reviewed journals on your topic of interest.

 

· Before you read the full article and begin your annotation, locate the methodology section in the article to be sure that it describes the appropriate research design.

 

 

 

o For quantitative research articles, confirm that a quantitative research design, such as a quasi-experimental, casual comparative, correlational, pretest–posttest, or true experimental, was used in the study.

 

 

 

o For qualitative research articles, confirm that a qualitative research design or approach, such as narrative, ethnographic, grounded theory, case study, or phenomenology, was used in the study.

 

 

 

o For mixed methods research articles, confirm that a mixed methods research (MMR) design was used in the study. There are several design classifications in MMR; some examples of MMR types or families of design are parallel, concurrent, sequential, multilevel, or fully integrated mixed methods design.

 

 

 

· Prepare an annotated bibliography that includes the following:

 

o A one-paragraph introduction that provides context for why you selected the six research articles you did: two quantitative, two qualitative, and two MMR.

 

 

 

o A reference list entry in APA Style for each of the six articles that follows proper formatting.

 

 

 

 Follow each reference list entry with a three-paragraph annotation that includes:

 

§ An application as illustrated in this example

 

§ An analysis

 

§ A summary

 

 

 

o A one-paragraph conclusion that presents a synthesis of the six articles.

 

· Format your annotated bibliography in Times New Roman, 12-point font, double-spaced. A separate References list page is not needed for this assignment.
