In preparation for your Cultural Diversity Research Paper (the research paper is not due until Week 5), research your topic of interest, find appropriate resources, list them on an Annotated Bibliography, and submit this Week 3, following the directions below:  

• Select a culture you wish to learn more about. You will each conduct an in-depth study of a different culture, focusing on issues about living in the United States, both through an Early Childhood and family perspective. Try to immerse yourself within a culture that you do not already know much about, but have a need or desire to learn about; perhaps the culture represents someone in your classroom or school. Learn a bit about many aspects of the culture (traditions, language, etiquette, etc.), but especially attend to the contemporary issues the culture faces while living in our country today.

• Use three to five peer-reviewed academic quality sources. You will likely need to look at more than three sources so that you can narrow down to your best sources. These sources will need to be pre-approved by Instructor).

• Submit an Annotated Bibliography Week 3 for three to five academic quality sources for pre-approval by Instructor for use with your paper. An annotated bibliography is a list of citations for various books, articles, and other sources on a topic. The annotated bibliography looks like a Reference page but includes an annotation after each source cited. An annotation is a short summary (50-150 words) and/or critical evaluation of a source. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited. 

• Your Annotated Bibliography must be APA formatted.

  • Format: The format for an annotated bibliography is similar to the References page of an APA paper with the addition of the descriptive paragraphs. Use one-inch margins on all sides, double space your entries, and alphabetize each entry. 
  • Hanging indents are required for citations. On the line after the citation, indent two additional spaces and write the annotation.
  • Remember to add an APA formatted title page.
  • For annotated bibliographies, use standard APA format for the citations, then add a brief entry, including: 
    • 2 to 4 sentences to summarize the main idea(s) of the source.
      • What are the main arguments?
      • What is the point of this book/article?
      • What topics are covered?
    • 1 or 2 sentences to assess and evaluate the source.
    • How does it compare with other sources in your bibliography?
    • Is this information reliable?
    • Is the source objective or biased?
    • 1 or 2 sentences to reflect on the source.
      • Was this source helpful to you?
      • How can you use this source for your research project?
      • Has it changed how you think about your topic
    • See example of a journal article entry below.
