Description

Students will find, read, and annotate an academic article related to their research manuscript topic.

Objectives

  • Evaluate information and its source when constructing your beliefs.
  • Compare different perspectives on a real-world issue.

Instructions

1. Using the Internet or library as a resource, find an academic
article related to your research manuscript topic. Once you have found
an article, copy it into a Microsoft Word document. You have access to
Microsoft Word through your Concorde 365 email account.

2. Using the “Track Changes” tool in Microsoft Word, annotate your
article. For tips on how to use Track Changes, click on the following
links:

3. Annotating an article means that you provide a brief analysis of
the article. You can begin by reading the article once through to
understand the main idea. Then go back and look up any words or concepts
you do not understand. Next, look at the points the author makes and
any rationale that is provided to back up the main ideas (you may
underline, bold, or comment to indicate these). You may also want to
note any particular passages that you think are important. Be sure to
track all of the edits that you make during your annotation. Review the
annotation example below before you start.

4. Write a summary (250-350 words) of the article after you have completed your reading.

Assignment Submission:

  • The use of outside resources is strongly recommended and all papers must be cited and written in APA format.
  • Once you have completed the assignment, click the Submit Assignment
    option in the menu to the right and select a format for submitting your
    assignment.
  • Click the Submit Assignment button when you are ready.
