1) Begin with your First Half of the Annotated Bibliography from Step 6. Incorporate all feedback from your professor on Step 6 to strengthen the First Half of your Annotated Bibliography.
Carry that feedback forward into the following steps.
2) Search the UMGC Library for 1 more scholarly journal article on your chosen topic. These article must come from the UMGC Library. Review Step 1 if needed.
3) Search the internet / web for 1 more article on your topic. Review Step 2 if needed. Again it is acceptable to include subpar sources because it is valuable to determine why a source is not a good source. However, there are sites not allowed for this assignment: See Unsuitable Websites below, and do not use encyclopedias.
4) Cite each new source in Chicago Style Bibliographic Form. Reminder for your new sources: Do not use citation generators for Chicago. Virtually all of them place the year incorrectly. Instead create your own citations. Review Step 3 if needed.
5) Incorporate each new source alphabetically into your existing Annotated Bibliography.
6) Format your work. Below each new citation (single space), indent the first line and double space your annotations as shown here. This is the same form as in Step 6.
7) Compose your annotations for each new source in narrative paragraphs. Refer to the Example Annotated Bibliography examples under Step 6.
Each annotation will be at least 150-200 words and will include 9 items:
Item 1: Author Background – What are the author’s credentials? Where does the author work? Does the author have other publications by credible publishers? Is the author affiliated with a respected organization?
Item 2: Publishing Organization Background – Is the publisher a peer-reviewed, scholarly journal? Is the publisher an academic press? Is the publisher a website cited by respected sources? Is the site affiliated with a respected organization?
Item 3: Thesis / Argument – Use your professor’s feedback on Step 4 – What does the author argue? Identify the thesis by completing this statement: The author argues that _____.
This will help ensure that you capture the thesis.
Item 4: Main Points – In 2-3 sentences, briefly note the main points. These will usually appear as supports for the thesis.
Item 5: Evidence – What evidence does the author use? Is this evidence credible?
Item 6: Degree of Bias – Use your professor’s feedback on Step 5 – How biased is this source? Does the author acknowledge and explain their bias? What are the author’s goals? Who is the intended audience? These questions will help you in determining bias.
Item 7: Accuracy – Use lateral reading as addressed in Step 2 to determine how accurate the source appears to be. You might not be able to determine this authoritatively if the topic is not well covered online. If that is the case, include a statement to that effect.
Item 8: Comparison to Other Sources – What general trends do you see in your sources? For example, are there key areas of agreement or disagreement? Is one source more biased than the others? Or do you find generally balanced approaches in your sources? Do all of your sources share the same assumptions? Are there new approaches to old evidence? You do not have to answer all of these questions for this item. These questions should serve as a guide for how to address this item fully.
Item 9: Assessment of Suitability for Academic Research – State your assessment of quality clearly by choosing is or is not and completing this statement: This source is / is not suitable for academic research because _____.
You may find the evaluation criteria provided by the UMGC Library useful. https://www.umgc.edu/current-students/learning-resources/writing-center/writing-resources/evaluating-sources.cfm
8) Use the rubric at the end of Submit Your Assignment as a checklist while you work and again before you turn it in.
Reminder: If your article has an abstract, do not copy and paste it as your own work. That would be a violation of your Academic Integrity Pledge. Instead read the article and produce your own answers to the above items. You may certainly use the abstract to guide your work.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask in the Connect With Your Professor module or directly email your professor directly.
Assignments must be submitted as a Word document. This means that the file name will end in .doc or .docx as in the following example: Johnson_Annotated_Bibliography.doc
If there is a problem with this requirement, contact your professor.
9) When you have completed and proofread your work, submit your work for feedback and grading as a .doc or .docx.

Case 4:
“Aiden”, male, 7 years, 1 month of age
Background:
Born at 37 weeks gestation with a low birth weight, Aiden had a history of asthma, environmental allergies, a diagnosis of ADD, and chronic serous otitis media (fluid in the ears) which required placement of bilateral pressure-equalization tubes three times. Aiden had previously received occupational therapy for fine motor delays.
Presenting Problem:
Aiden was referred due to concerns with delayed development of articulation and social communication skills. His parents reported he had difficulty with transitioning and would “get stuck” on an activity, struggled to keep up with peers and did not interact well with others. Aiden’s teachers reported he exhibited sadness/depression and social delays. Aiden presented with social communication deficits in the presence of average expressive and receptive language scores (Preschool Language Scale-5th Edition). The Test of Pragmatic Language was utilized to assess Aiden’s social language skills. Aiden had a standard score of 74 with an age equivalent of 4 years, 0 months. A standard score of 90 to 110 is considered to be normal limits for peers of his same age/gender. Difficulties presented included:
 Formulating questions (requests)
 Politely indicating or verbalizing dislikes
 Understanding sarcasm
 Verbalizing conflict resolution in an age-appropriate manner
 Heeding warning in various safety situations
 Interacting with less or unfamiliar individuals
 Making eye contact
 Joint play
 Impaired speech intelligibility, (/r/ distortions)
The school referred them for an Audiological evaluation.

Many TV shows depict law enforcement personnel accessing readily accessible data

Many TV shows depict law enforcement personnel accessing readily accessible databases that contain all types of records about individuals –records about everything from address to telephone records to finances, insurance, and criminal history. The information you share with your bank, doctor, insurance agent, the TSA, ancestry kit companies, and on social media can make your life an open book. Here are some questions to address as you reflect on this:
1. Are you comfortable with giving away some of your privacy for increased security? Why or why not? How far would you let the government go in examining people’s private lives?
2. How much access should we have to certain aspects of others’ private lives? For example, should States share criminal databases? But should a database of people paroled or released for crimes be made public? Why or why not?

No need for any citations, this is just an article review from a classmate. Please make comments and any questions you may have.
Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive brain condition that’s thought to be caused by repeated blows to the head and repeated episodes of concussion. It’s particularly associated with contact sports, such as boxing or American football. Any prolonged activity that involves repeated blows to the head or recurrent episodes of concussion is thought to increase the risk of getting CTE. CTE and concussion are separate conditions. Many people who are concussed do not go on to develop CTE, but evidence suggests a pattern of repeated minor head injuries increases the risk.
The symptoms of CTE vary between individuals, but tend to be similar to those of other types of degenerative brain conditions, particularly Alzheimer’s disease. CTE usually begins gradually several years after receiving repetitive blows to the head or repeated concussions. The symptoms affect the functioning of the brain and eventually lead to dementia.
Symptoms:
short term memory loss – such as asking the same question several times, or having difficulty remembering names or phone numbers
changes in mood – mood swings, depression, and feeling increasingly anxious, frustrated or agitated
increasing confusion and disorientation – getting lost, wandering or not knowing what time of day it is
difficulty thinking – hard to make decisions
There’s currently no test to diagnose CTE. A diagnosis is based on a history of participating in contact sports, plus the symptoms and clinical features. Brain scan in regards to CTE, the changes to the brain do not always show up on routine brain scans or may be similar to other conditions. So a common method is analyzation of the brain after post mortem.
