Assignment focuses on two course outcomes:
Outcome 1: Examine the role of critical thinking for both a learner in a graduate program and as a professional in an industry.
Outcome 2: Prepare an annotated bibliography of scholarly resources on a research topic.
An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief (usually about 100 words), descriptive and evaluative paragraph, which is called the annotation. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.
First, locate and record citations to books, periodicals, and documents that may contain useful information and ideas on your topic from the CSU Online Library. Briefly examine and review the actual items. Then choose five works that provide a variety of perspectives on your topic. Next, cite the book, article, or document using APA Style formatting in the form of a reference citation. Finally, write a concise annotation that summarizes the central theme and scope of the book or article. Include one or more sentences that explain how this work illuminates your bibliography topic.
You must Include a title page with the proper APA Style formatted information.
