An annotated bibliography is a bibliography with notes that summarise and explain the relevance of each bibliographic entry (see p. 143 of textbook for more information). This assessment represents the next important stage in writing a persuasive essay; gathering relevant information from the published academic literature to:1. Build your understanding of the topic and2. Find credible evidence to back up the ideas that you will present in your final essay.So, through the specified CUC100 core readings (explored in Weeks 3, 4 and 5) you will build your knowledge of key sustainability concepts, as well as approaches to developing sustainable responses to concerns; and you will identify parts of these readings that could be used as evidence in your final essay. This assessment allows you to practise essential academic skills: reading, notetaking, summarising and writing an annotated bibliography.Task details:Choose any two of the three core readings that we have explored in CUC100 this semester and, for each of your chosen two core readings:• Present a heading that is the reading’s formal, complete and correct APA reference. (See the APA referencing guide on the CDU library webpage.)• Write a 200 word summary paragraph that summarises and paraphrases the key ideas and/or arguments in the core reading. (Use your own words; do not quote from the reading.)• Write a 200 word commentary paragraph that links the core reading to your final essay: First mention your chosen essay scenario and scope. Then, considering the core reading’s overall views and handling of sustainability, explain which ideas could be useful to cite, and why, in making your essay more persuasive.The assessment needs to be presented with the proper layout for annotated bibliographies, which includes the core readings appearing in alphabetical order according to their authors’ last names. Remember to set up your Word document according to the formatting guidelines.Please Note: The three core readings for CUC100 can be downloaded for free from the CUC100 Learnline site under “Readings”. We will work on the summaries & commentaries for each of the core readings in Weeks 3, 4 and 5. Then, in Week 6, we will demonstrate how an annotated bibliography should be presented. Guidelines and examples of an annotated bibliography are also provided in the Week 6 Learning Materials and Chapter 6 (p. 146) of our textbook (Rolls & Wignell, 2015).Points to consider for passing Assessment 2:• Follow the task guidelines above, as well as the guidelines for writing an annotated bibliography as provided in our Week 6 Learning Materials. Refer to your textbook for extra information, hints and tips on the appropriate structure.• Follow correct referencing conventions to present each core reading’s details as the heading for that section of your annotated bibliography. The most up-to-date guidelines for APA 6th edition referencing style are found on the CDU library website:• Do not add a separate reference list at the end of your annotated bibliography. There should be no in-text citations within an annotated bibliography.• Remember that the sections of your annotated bibliography should be presented in alphabetical order according to the surnames of the leading authors of the core readings. So, the order of the core readings (as presented in Weeks 3, 4 and 5) is not necessarily the order in which this assessment item should reference them.• Each section of your annotated bibliography should be approximately 400 words. This should consist of your summary paragraph (approximately 200 words) and your commentary paragraph (approximately 200 words).• The commentary (or ‘linking’) section of this assessment item is particularly difficult because you are being asked to explicitly discuss which ideas and/or arguments of the author(s) could apply to your chosen scenario. Ask yourself: how is this source relevant to my scenario, and why? What sections, themes or examples could I use in my Persuasive Essay? Analysing and linking ideas across topics and scenarios is an important skill to develop at university for research in your study areas.
