GCC Date Collected by USUMA on Childhood Adversity Annotated Bibliographies Paper
I’m studying for my Psychology class and need an explanation.
For this assignment, you will pretend as though you are writing a research paper. In preparation for this pretend paper, please find and analyze 3 scholarly, peer-reviewed research articles related to the stage of early childhood. You may choose any research topic, as long as the focus is on early childhood (somewhere between the ages of 3-8). You must find 3 articles that focus on a similar topic.
Then, you will read the articles and:
- Provide the full, APA formatted citation for the entry
- Write a concise annotation that:
- Summarizes the central theme and scope of the article,
- Evaluates the authority or background of the author,
- Comments on the intended audience,
- Compares or contrast this work with another you have cited,
- Explains how this work illuminates your topic.
- Ensure each entry is formatted correctly according to APA style, free of errors, and written in an academic tone
- This paper does not need any special formatting – just type the entries onto a document exactly as I have done in the example.
Your entry must be written entirely in your own words. Do not use any direct quotes from the article.
Please type your entries on a document and upload it to the assignment. I would prefer that you save and upload your document as a PDF.
Example of Annotated Bibliography entry:
Waite, L. J., Goldschneider, F. K., & Witsberger, C. (1986). Nonfamily living and the erosion of traditional family orientations among young adults. American Sociological Review, 51 (4), 541-554.
The authors, researchers at the Rand Corporation and Brown University, use data from the National Longitudinal Surveys of Young Women and Young Men to test their hypothesis that nonfamily living by young adults alters their attitudes, values, plans, and expectations, moving them away from their belief in traditional sex roles. They find their hypothesis strongly supported in young females, while the effects were fewer in studies of young males. Increasing the time away from parents before marrying increased individualism, self-sufficiency, and changes in attitudes about families. In contrast, an earlier study by Williams cited below shows no significant gender differences in sex role attitudes as a result of nonfamily living.
