Annotated bibliography for this week

This assignment:

In Week Three you will construct a business report or proposal, and in Week Five you will construct an essay that discusses a public issue or concern. Review the assignment instructions in Week Three and Week Five, and identify one topic that you will use for your Week Three and Week Five assignments.

Next, research and select three scholarly sources that you plan to use in developing your Week Three and Week Five topic, and create an Annotated Bibliography of the key findings of the source material and how it fits with your topic. Include at least one government source, and one industry-specific source. In composing your annotated bibliography address the following:

  • Describe the overall purpose of each source as it relates to your chosen topic.
  • Identify at least one specific part of this work that is most applicable to your topic.
  • Select a direct quote from each source that provides a key insight applicable to your topic, and explain how the quote and the source address the interests of both a public audience and a business audience.

Each annotation should be at least 250 words in length. Your sources must include at one source from the Ashford Library, one source from an academic journal, and one video or multimedia source.

Be sure to use APA style when citing your sources.  For information regarding APA, including samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center.
