Students will be assigned a body region. Each student will then be responsible for choosing one article from a peer reviewed journal using the virtual library in relation to applied anatomy and kinesiology for the assigned body region. Students must have the article approved by the instructor prior to submission of the annotated bibliography. The instructor will approve the article based on a peer reviewed journal not content or relevance to topic. Students will then be required to write an annotated bibliography on the approved article.
Students will construct an annotated bibliography. An annotated bibliography is a list of citations of articles, books, and other publications on a particular topic. Each citation is followed by a relatively brief paragraph that summarizes the source’s argument and other relevant material including its intended audience, sources of evidence, and methodology. The assignment will be completed individually and out of class. The annotated bibliography consists of two elements:
1. The citation in current AMA style format
2. The Annotation – The annotation should consist of one paragraph using whole complete sentences in the third person and should be approximately 150-200 words in length. The assignment should be typed, double spaced, in Times New Roman 12 font, 1” margin.
The annotation should include most, if not all, of the following:
Explanation of main purpose
Description of content
Focus of article
Relevance of topic
Type of intended audience
Evaluate its method, conclusion and/or reliability
Strengths / weaknesses or biases
