The purpose of this activity is to encourage critical thinking about the articles/ sources you are reading (and considering using) in your personal scholarly
narrative. For your scholarly personal narrative, you must connect your story to a broader audience, and you’ll need to incorporate outside sources (peerreviewed articles, etc.) to situate and contextualize the central issue.
For this assignment I want you to summarize three articles you have read related to the central issue of your scholarly personal narrative. Use the following
guidelines to write your annotation:
Cite the source using APA style.
Describe the main ideas, arguments, themes, theses, or methodology, and identify the intended audience.
Explain the author’s expertise, point of view, and any bias he/she may have.
Compare to other sources on the same topic that you have also cited to show similarities and differences.
Explain why each source is useful for your research topic and how it relates to your topic.
Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of each source.
Identify the observations or conclusions of the author.
Please post your 3 articles’ annotated bibliography to the discussion board
