Question 2

The Critical Annotated Bibliography

 

In this assignment you will write a list of at least 12 references in alphabetical order in APA format. In addition, each reference will be followed by a short analytical summary of 200-250 words.

 

At the end of the short summary, you will include a sentence or two that critically analyzes the source and that mentions distinctive features about the article and why it may or may not be useful for you in writing a literature review.

 

You may select a topic of your choice. However, when selecting a topic, keep in mind that it should be a topic on which a number of studies or scholarly articles have been published. 

Examples of topics students have chosen in the past or that would be workable for this assignment are the following: ï‚·The impact of the Internet on research methods of students and plagiarism in student papers ï‚·The impact of The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act on primary school education ï‚·The impact of mobile devices on cybersecurity

 

For example, please examine the following ideas:

If your major is criminal justice, you might consider researching criminal behavior among homeless individuals, criminal behavior among youth, society’s perception of law enforcement, etc. If your major is psychology, you might consider researching counseling strategies, consumer behavior in online shopping, decision-making in upper-management positions, etc. If your major is history, you might consider researching theories on the Civil War, studies on labor patterns in the United States, an aspect of military history, etc. If your major is social science, you might consider researching community responses to health care threats, co-parenting patterns after divorce, etc.

This assignment will be an analytical/critical/ annotated bibliography. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Question 3

 

Synthesis Essay/ Literature Review.

 

 

Your synthesis essay should be organized in the following manner: •Introduction: Write one or two paragraphs in which you introduce the reader to your topic. •Body-the categories into which you are dividing the literature: Divide your sources into a few categories. A suggestion is that you divide them into three to five categories. •Conclusion: Summarize what the literature says on your topic. Approach: you have constructed a table of research findings of four articles that discussed research studies. You have also critically evaluated several articles in the annotated bibliography. In this assignment you will synthesize the ideas of several authors in a synthesis essay, or literature review. For your annotated bibliography, you selected a topic based on your interests and, possibly, your major. You constructed a list of 12 references and summarized and critically analyzed them in 150-200 words each. Through this process, you may have seen patterns in the scholarly literature in the topic on which you conducted research. For example, consider the following examples: •You may have researched studies in criminal justice and found that there are varying opinions on how to respond to criminal behavior among youth. •You may have researched studies in psychology and found that counseling strategies for victims of domestic abuse tend to fall into four categories. •You may have researched graphic communications and discovered that the integration of graphics in business report writing has evolved from the 1970s to the present because of advancements in technology. •You may have researched articles on gerontology and found studies that answered three basic questions on how older adults respond to training for physical performance.

 

In the synthesis essay, you will focus your research efforts in a particular area, perhaps as a response to what you found while writing the annotated bibliography. You will then conduct more research and synthesize your findings in this synthesis essay. Please note that the annotated bibliography was the beginning, not the end, of your research. You might decide to disregard several of the articles you analyzed in the critical annotated bibliography because they don’t speak to the specific area on which you have decided to write your synthesis essay. You might select one article that

you analyzed in the critical annotated bibliography, look up the articles cited in that article, and “snowball” your research in that way. In other words, this process is a recursive one. You might find reasons to hone in on and narrow your topic even further after you have written the annotated bibliography.

 

How to organize the synthesis essay: When you have focused on your topic, determine how you will divide the literature. In other words, consider the following examples we described above: You may have researched studies in criminal justice and found that there are varying opinions on how to respond to criminal behavior among youth. You might divide the paper as follows: Introduction Body •Category 1: “A” view on responding to criminal behavior. •Category 2: “B” view on responding to criminal behavior. •Category 3: “C” view on responding to criminal behavior. •Category 4: “D” view on responding to criminal behavior. Conclusion

 

You may have researched studies in psychology and found that counseling strategies for victims of domestic abuse tend to fall into four categories. You might divide the paper as follows: Introduction Body •Category 1: “A” counseling strategy for victims of child abuse •Category 2: “B” counseling strategy for victims of child abuse •Category 3: “C” counseling strategy for victims of child abuse •Category 4: “D” counseling strategy for victims of child abuse Conclusion

 

You may have researched graphic communications and discovered that the integration of graphics in business report writing has evolved from the 1970s to the present because of advancements in technology. You might divide the paper as follows: Introduction


Body

•Category 1: graphics in business report writing in the 1970s •Category 2: graphics in business report writing in the 1980s •Category 3: graphics in business report writing in the 1990s •Category 4: graphics in business report writing from 2000 to the present Conclusion

 

You may have researched articles on gerontology and found studies that answered three basic questions on how older adults respond to training for physical performance. You might divide the paper as follows: Introduction Body •Question 1 •Question 2 •Question 3 Conclusion

 

In order for you to see this concept with a real-life example, you can access a sample synthesis or literature review from a psychology student by clicking here. The student writes her paper on the following topic: Emotional Eating: The Perpetual Cycle of Mood-Food Influence. She divides her literature into the following categories: •Influence of Mood on Eating Behavior •Gender Differences •Influence of Eating Behavior on Later Moods •Chronic Stress Response Network Notice how she synthesizes and integrates the research into the different categories.

 

Approach and Requirements Your synthesis essay, or literature review, should be 2000-2500 words, not including your “references” pages at the end of the review. In other words, the text of the paper should be 2000-2500 words. In addition your synthesis essay should include at least 10 scholarly sources in the “references” section. As stated above, this means that you may decide not to use all 12 sources that you summarized in your annotated bibliography. You are free to use all 12 of them. However, it is possible that your experience in writing summaries of the 12 sources led you to conclude that a few of them will not be as helpful to your topic as you had originally thought. You may decide not to include such sources in the synthesis essay. This is totally up to

you. Moreover, you might find other sources that you would like to include in your synthesis essay that were not included in your annotated bibliography. You may use such sources in your synthesis essay as well.

 

 

 

 

Question 4

 

 

In this assignment you will describe the topic on which you wrote your synthesis essay, or literature review. You will then state what gaps you found in the research on your topic, areas in which further research might be appropriate on the topic, or any questions have opened up for you or remained unanswered as a result of having researched this topic. This paper will be approximately 700-750 words. Organization of the Paper Introductory paragraph: In this paragraph, you will explain the topic which you researched. The final sentence will be a thesis statement arguing for further research in specific areas.

 Body section of 2-3 paragraphs: This section would describe any one of, or a combination of, the following. You would want at least two areas in which you felt there were gaps, needs for further research, or new or unanswered questions as a result of your research.

 

-gaps you saw in the research

 

For example, let us imagine you wrote a literature review on the effectiveness of one-on-one laptop programs in high schools. You may have noticed that little research has been done on how non-native speakers of English respond to one-on-one laptop programs. No studies analyzed the effects of such programs on the writing, reading, and critical thinking development of non-native speakers of English. This could be a gap in the research that you would point out in your paper.

 

 

-areas in which further research could be conducted that would shed more light on an issue

 

For example, let us imagine you wrote a literature review on the effectiveness of one-on-one laptop programs in high schools. You may have noticed that research has been conducted on the impact of such programs on the writing skills of non-native speakers of English. However, the studies did not focus on particular language groups. You feel that further study specifically on Chinese speakers and further study specifically on Spanish speakers is warranted. This could be an example of an area in which further research would be warranted that you would point out in your paper.

 

 

-questions that remained unanswered for you or new questions that opened up for you as you read the current literature on your topic

 

For example, let us imagine you wrote a literature review on the effectiveness of one-on-one laptop programs in high schools. You noticed that, as you were reading through the literature, you had questions on how schools determined what types of laptops to purchase. Did they purchase Hewlett-Packards computers, Dell computers, Toshiba computers, Acer computers, or computers from some other vendor? You found yourself wondering how business decisions with vendors are made when implementing a one-on-one laptop program. This could be an example of a question that opened up for you as you read through the literature. You could note this question in your paper.

 Conclusion: In one paragraph, summarize your points in the body section. Re-state and succinctly explain any gaps, areas of further research, or unanswered questions.
