research topic template and annotated bibliography 6-8 pages

Use the media pieces to understand the components of the annotated bibliography. Make sure to number each source. You should include 10 research sources in this assessment. Make sure to apply proper APA style and formatting. You will submit your annotated bibliography, research topic template, AND research matrix, as a single submission, but separate files.

Each annotation should include the citation of the source, just as you would list it in the reference list. Identify the author and make a statement related to the author’s qualifications. Identify the research question. Identify the research problem that the author hoped to resolve. Identify the methods used by the author to investigate the research question. Provide a summary of the findings. Evaluate the work. You can do this by addressing the arguments that were made in the research study or discussing the value that the research study findings have for the field: how it advances the knowledge base. Finally, discuss how the study supports your research topic. Identify whether the article is chosen for its usefulness in terms of method, content, or both content and method.

To successfully complete this assessment, make sure to:

· Finalize your research topic template. Check to make sure that the template has all sections filled out and that the topic has been narrowed as much as possible. It should end with a literature search question (LSQ).

· Finalize your research matrix or literature map. At this point it should include 10 research articles. You have a choice to create a literature map as outlined in the course text or use the research matrix provided in the course resources.

· Understand the components of the annotated bibliography. Revisit the media to understand what you need to know. Make sure to include the content that has been outlined above.

Note: your literature review will require 20 sources because you will need to include theoretical research sources. You may exceed 10 sources for this assessment but you must include no fewer than 10.

The annotated bibliography assessment should contain 6–8 pages, including the cover page.
