Week 5 - Assignment 1
Assignment 1: Scholarly Article Annotation
By Week 5, Day 3, post your response to the Discussion Area.
By the end of the week, comment on at least two of your
classmates’ submissions. Remember that your replies should help your classmates
expand, clarify, defend, and/or refine their work. You can ask questions and
use declarative sentences to express your thoughts. Be sure to be honest,
clear, and concise, referring to specific words and passages from your
classmates’ work. Always use constructive language, and avoid negative
language; work toward using a tone and spirit of intellectual curiosity and
discovery. Your responses to your peers' writing should include specifics if
you are attempting to make a point.
This week you will have the opportunity to practice the
skills of finding scholarly articles in the library. First, refer to the
lecture about conducting research in the South University Online Library. Next,
go to the library and find one credible, scholarly source examining the short
story that was the focus of your essay for W4: Assignment 2. Avoid popular
publications, such as magazines, newspapers, and other informational media that
are not research oriented. Try this Research Guide provided for this course by
South University Online Library Services.

Your annotation should include:
A complete APA citation of your source. (APA Citation
A 150-word summary of the argument and key points of your
