The Final Project consists of a literature review with an annotated bibliography. A literature review requires you to select, analyze, summarize, and synthesize research using scholarly resources on a particular topic. For each source, you create an annotation, which consists of a brief descriptive and evaluative paragraph of the source. The annotation highlights the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the source cited. The literature review and the annotated bibliography can provide you with an overview of a topic or act as a stepping-stone toward completing a research paper such as a thesis or dissertation at the end of your program.
The Final Project should be a total of 10–12 pages in length, which includes the 1-page introduction, 3–4 pages for the annotated bibliography, and 7–10 pages for the literature review.
