SPECIFICATIONS:

Here are the specifications for this project.

  1. Each student will prepare an Annotated Bibliography for the week 15 assignment.
  2. You may select a review of books, websites, and/or periodicals.  You will need to prepare an Annotated Bibliography of 10-15 entries for this assignment.  Each entry must focus on a theory, principle, concept, and/or issue covered in our textbook(s) or newsgroup postings.  You are not limited to just one item, but it is expected and recommended that each of your bibliographic entries will be on a different area or topic.
  3. Each annotated bibliography entry must consist of 6-8 sentences to review the particular reference thoroughly.  You will be graded on your selection of material, formatting, and synthesis/analysis of the materials for this project.
