Step 3: Create an annotation of this article as if you were considering it for a source in a paper. Here’s how:
- List the article in APA format, as the video describes. (Note: the publication date for this article is not listed. A quick Google Search of the article title will show you that the year of publication is 2013. Include this in your citation.)
- Write a 150-200 word summary/critique of the article in which you not only summarize the article but also note any strengths or weaknesses you find in it. In addition, mention whether it will be a possible article for an essay on the topic of teaching grammar in writing courses. (Note: you won’t be writing about this topic for your own writing assignments.)
Your annotation thus should include the following:
- Focus of the study (~ 1-2 sentences
- Conclusion(s) of the study (~ 1-2 sentences)
- Analysis of the study (e.g., any strengths or weaknesses? Any thing that was particularly remarkable/helpful?) (~ 1-2 sentences)
- Its relevance to research on teaching grammar in writing courses (~ 1-2 sentences)
Please refer to the “Sample Annotated Bibliography-7th edition” in this week’s Content for an example.
