By Friday, November 15, 2013, summarize key points or lessons in a PowerPoint presentation and submit it to the appropriate Discussion Area.
To consolidate your work, by Saturday, November 16, 2013, you should submit a three-page, single-spaced paper with your complete annotated bibliography to the M4: Assignment 2 Dropbox. This written assignment, as well as all other submissions, should follow APA Guidelines including a cover page and using correct citations; it will not contain a reference page. Each article will be different, but you should anticipate a half-page (single spacing) summary for each article. Be sure to properly cite in the presentation. Keep in mind that the annotated bibliography, if done strategically, can assist in large part with developing your LASA in Module 7.Grading CriteriaMaximum PointsCorrectly identified relevant and up-to-date references15Prepared the PowerPoint file and submitted it to the Discussion Area20Posted a review of the submissions of at least two peers in terms of relevance of their references15Submitted a sound personal perspective on the chosen topic25Clearly supported the paper with the listed references15Wrote in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrated ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; displayed accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.10Total
You will compose your annotated bibliography this week. Your bibliography should include at least 12 fairly recent sources that were published within the last 5 years. You must provide a narrative of each reference in terms of a summary and its relevance. You will provide a summary and evaluation of the source in terms of its strengths, weaknesses, etc. This bibliography will be used in your Week 7 communications plan. Thus it is most effective to select useful sources for the plan now.
