The topic I have chosen for my annotated bibliography is the psychological impact of the re-emerging trend of multigenerational living.
I have the peer-reviewed journals I am using in pdf form. The instructions for the assignment are below.
An APA formatted Annotated Bibliography of at least 6 peer-reviewed, evidence-based academic journal articles. This assignment requires a properly formatted title page, an abstract page and a Reference citation for each article followed by a brief summary (or “annotation”) of what the article is about. An annotated bibliography is more than just a list of articles; that is what would go on Reference List. Instead each article listing in an annotated bibliography must be followed by a 2 to 3 paragraph summary of the article’s contents (i.e., what the research questions were, who the study participants were, what data was collected and in what format it was collected in (e.g., surveys or interviews), what was found in the study and what limitations of the study were highlighted by the authors.) Remember you are writing succinct, short synopses of each article since the term “Annotated” means that each source listed must include directly below its reference information the description of what the source covers. After each source description, please conclude with a short statement (2 to 3 paragraphs long) of how the respective source is related to one or more of your other sources and how they link to your overall topic. Merely copying the article’s abstract and submitting it as an annotation is prohibited, and will result in a zero score. Also quoting isn’t needed or accepted for this assignment either. Instead summarize the aforementioned information in your own words. This assignment must be completed per the course general writing standards, in APA format and show evidence of meaning making after engagement with the articles. It requires a title page and abstract. Your paper should be at least 5 pages. You will NOT include a reference page. You will have included full reference information above each annotation entry as provided for you in the week 2 lesson sample. The title page and abstract do not count in the 5 page minimum length, but if you include all of the required information, each of your annotation entries will be about 3/4ths of a page since:You will have the reference information double spaced above each annotation in proper APA format You will then have the single spaced annotations of 2 to 3 paragraphs containing the required information below each reference And then you will have a one paragraph statement of each articles relevance to each other and to your overall topic at the end of the annotation.
