Prepare an Annotated Bibliography. Locate 10 scholarly resources and prepare an annotated bibliography that includes the following: An APA reference citation for the resource. (e.g., Remedios, R., & Richardson, J. T. E. (2013). Achievement goals in adult learners: Evidence from distance education. British Journal of Educational Psychology, 83(4), 664–685. doi: 10.1111/bjep.12001).

Explain what the study examined. Also explain how the study was carrie-d out. Explain what the key findings from the study were. Hence reflect on the resource and suggest how you think this resource might be useful to you. For example, you may find that the methods are particularly interesting/relevant (e.g., research design, techniques used in interviewing, recruiting, the use of standardized questionnaires, or it may be that the study focuses on potential populations you might want to work with or maybe the study highlights to you a line of research you hadn’t thought about).
Please note the same rules for citation applied to other documents (such as proper paraphrasing and the use of quotation marks where necessary) apply to Annotate-d Bibliographies as well. It is not acceptable to cut and paste from the abstract or the body of an article. Instead, you are expected to read the article completely and appropriately paraphrase the necessary material. For those few situations where paraphrasing is not acceptable, then material that has not been paraphrased must be placed in quotation marks.
