Module 3 Assignment 1: Course Project Task II/Annotated Bibliography

During Module 2, you identified four journal empirical articles related to your research question. In this module, select two more articles related to your topic, totaling to six sources by this module that you would have gathered.

For the first assignment this module, select two of those six sources and using the guidelines provided on the Module 3 page 2 lecture page, create the annotated bibliographies of the two sources and submit to the M3A1 drop box. Each annotation must be no longer than 150-200 words.

This submission will automatically be reviewed by Turnitin software. You will receive an Originality Report for matching text sections that have been flagged by the software. Review the handouts in DocSharing to understand how to interpret the Turnitin report accurately.

As you revise, make sure you have cited your sources accurately and also paraphrased the original material in your own words. 

Once the revision is complete, submit to the M3: Assignment 1 Dropbox, byFriday, May 23, 2014.
