1. Strictly follow the guideline to write annotated bibliography that summarizes and explains how
each of 6 sources will aid in development of your upcoming Recommendation
Report. 2. The recommendation report is the final project that will be assigned after the annotated bibliography. The topic of the recommendation report is the same topic of the memorandum that you wrote before: The wellness program development. Attached below. (The only one change i made is replacing all the company’s name — “Greenland Company’ with “Shanghai Renshou Insurance Company”) 3. By doing this annotated bibliography you can start organizing the recommendation report which i will post question on later. I’ll upload the recommendation report guideline for previewing. I’ll also attach the memo that you wrote with my instructor’s feedback for you to work further on the paper.

ENG  3107:  Writing  for  the  Professions—Business  &  Social  Science  
Rev.6.26.18  
 
 
Project  5:  APA  Annotated  Bibliography  
 
OWL  Draft  Due  Date:  Sunday,  March  10th,  no  later  than  11:59  p.m.  
 
Final  Draft  Setup:  
• 6  sources  obtained  through  research  
• Proper  APA  citation  format  
• 12-­‐point  Times  New  Roman  font  
• Double-­‐spaced  lines  
• 3rd  person  point  of  view  
 
WHAT:  Develop  an  Annotated  Bibliography  that  summarizes  and  explains  how  
each  of  6  sources  will  aid  in  development  of  your  upcoming  Recommendation  
Report.    An  annotated  bibliography  cites  a  list  of  books,  articles,  and  
documents.  Each  listed  citation  is  followed  by  a  paragraph  that  describes  the  
relevance,  quality,  and  potential  use  of  the  cited  source.  
For  your  annotated  bibliography,  ensure  the  final  draft  
1) Offers  6  sources,  paying  attention  to  content  reliability  and  author  
credibility.  
2) Summarizes  the  content  of  each  source.  
3) Discusses  how  each  source  will  aid  your  report’s  development.  
4) Includes  (at  the  top  of  the  annotated  bibliography)  
a. working  title  for  your  upcoming  Recommendation  Report;  
b. overarching  subject  to  be  discussed  in  your  Recommendation  Report;  
c. statement  of  purpose  (problem  and  potential  solution)  featured  in  
your  Recommendation  Report.  
ENG  3107:  Writing  for  the  Professions—Business  &  Social  Science  
Rev.6.26.18  
 
 
5) Cites  each  source  in  perfect  APA  Reference  page  format  (see  model  in  this  
assignment  sheet).  
6) Uses  12-­‐point  Times  New  Roman  font.  
HOW:    BRAINSTORM:    Think  of  a  specific  solution  to  a  defined  problem  within  a  
specific  company  or  organization  about  which  you  feel  passionate!    You  will  also  
write  about  this  in  your  Recommendation  Report.    When  you  brainstorm,  
consider  how  you  think  people  should  act,  feel  and  think  regarding  this  solution  to  
a  business-­‐related  problem.      Remember,  in  your  Recommendation  Report,  your  
goal  is  to  persuade  your  readers  to  take  action  in  response  to  this  problem.      
STATEMENT  OF  PURPOSE  –  use  the  exercise  below  to  craft  your  statement  of  
purpose.    Your  STATEMENT  OF  PURPOSE,  above  all,  HAS  DEFINE  a  business-­‐
related  problem  and  PRESENT  a  specific  solution.      
A  MODEL  STATEMENT  OF  PURPOSE  STATEMENT:    
Working  Statement  of  Purpose  for  Recommendation  Report:  
In  this  location,  give  the  reader  a  working  Statement  of  Purpose  statement  for  
your  Recommendation  Report.    
Example:    Since  plastics  pollution  wreaks  havoc  on  the  food  chain  of  marine  life,  
the  management  at  XYZ  Coffeeshop  should  stop  giving  plastic  straws  and  plastic  
bags  to  customers,  and  post  materials  to  educate  people  about  plastics  pollution  
in  the  oceans.        
Your  Turn:  “Since  
______________________________________________________________,    
_________________________________________________________________.”    
Develop  a  clearer  idea  of  WHAT  you  need  to  research:    Write  5  questions  that  begin  
with  the  words  “How”,  “Why”,  or  “What”  regarding  the  solution  to  a  business-­‐related  
problem  about  which  you  want  to  write.

Question  5:  
___________________________________________________________________?  
REMEMBER  to  SUBMIT  your  draft(s)  to  your  WRITING  SPECIALIST  in  your  
Online  Writing  LAB  (ENG  3108).    Your  OWL  WRITING  SPECIALIST  will  help  you  
develop  a  polished,  well-­‐crafted  final  version  of  your  work.  
WHY:  An  annotated  bibliography  guides  the  reading,  evaluating,  and  sorting  of  
sources  planned  for  use  in  a  research  paper.    It  also  gives  practice  using  APA  
citation  format,  and  demonstrates  quality  of  research  undertaken,  while  
strengthening  a  writer’s  ability  to  analyze  and  evaluate  main  ideas,  supporting  
evidence,  and  conclusions  in  a  variety  of  texts.

CRITICAL  INFORMATION  ABOUT  HOW  TO  CONDUCT  RESEARCH  
WHAT  IS  RESEARCH?  
When  you  search  for  information  and  ideas  beyond  the  scope  of  common  
knowledge,  you  conduct  research.    For  example,  we  know  the  sky  is  blue,  so  you  
do  not  need  to  research  the  color  of  the  sky.    You  may,  however,  need  to  research  
why  the  sky  appears  blue.  
WHY  DO  WE  RESEARCH?  
1.          For  information.    We  may  need  to  look  up  facts,  statistics,  or  timelines  of  
events.    We  may  also  want  to  learn  more  in-­‐depth  information  about  a  subject  so  
we  can  make  informed  choices  and  hold  informed  opinions.  
2.          For  support.    When  we  have  an  idea  or  opinion,  we  may  need  to  show  
precedent  exists  for  our  idea  (for  example,  city  officials  implemented  our  idea  for  
keeping  parks  clean  and  our  idea  worked),  or  that  another  person,  an  expert  in  
the  field,  agrees  with  us  (for  example,  if  we  think  smoking  is  bad  for  our  health,  
we  may  need  to  show  someone  who  doubts  us  that  many  doctors  and  scientists  
agree,  in  their  expert  opinion,  smoking  harms  our  health).  
3.          To  engage  in  the  academic  dialogue.    As  scholars,  we  must  consider  issues  
and  ideas  from  all  sides.    Much  of  the  research  we  do  in  college  helps  us  consider  
alternate  points  of  view  and  make  connections  between  and  amongst  competing  
sources.    For  example,  you  may  be  undecided  about  whether  spanking  children  is  
a  good  disciplinary  technique.    Therefore,  you  would  research  different  
ENG  3107:  Writing  for  the  Professions—Business  &  Social  Science  
Rev.6.26.18  
 
 
perspectives  on  spanking  children  and  discipline.    Then,  after  you  complete  your  
research,  if  you  conclude  spanking  does  not  work  and  harms  children,  you  should  
not  ignore  the  sources  that  disagree  with  you.    Include  opposing  points  of  view  in  
your  essay,  examine  these  points  of  view,  analyze  them,  and  then  synthesize  or  
rebut  them  with  other  research  you  have  done  to  argue  your  point  of  view.    Make  
sure  you  understand  the  connections  between  different  ideas  and  opinions.  
 HOW  DO  WE  RESEARCH?  
First,  always  approach  research  as  a  good  critical  thinker.    Be  open  minded  and  
skeptical.    Always  change  your  mind  when  you  get  new,  better  information.    
College-­‐level  research  differs  from  high  school  research  because  you  search  for  
different  information  to  analyze  and  synthesize.      
 You  will  want  to  look  for  different  kinds  of  sources.    Types  of  sources  commonly  
used  in  college  writing  include:  
1.          Academic  Journal  articles.    Academic  journal  articles  are  articles  written  by  
experts  and  peer-­‐reviewed  by  other  experts.    They  are  specific,  academic,  and  
some  of  the  best  in-­‐depth  information  available.  
2.          Discipline-­‐specific  electronic  sources.    Discipline  here  means  “academic  
discipline”  or  field  –such  as  physics,  women’s  studies,  English,  French  literature  or  
psychology.    A  discipline-­‐specific  electronic  source  is  a  website  that  only  has  
information  about  that  subject  or  discipline.    So,  for  example,  Wiki  pages  or  Yahoo  
Answers  are  not  discipline-­‐specific  because  they  contain  information  about  a  lot  
of  different  subjects  from  many  people  who  are  not  always  experts.    However,  
you  can  use  the  website  for  the  National  Domestic  Violence  Hotline  for  
information  about  domestic  violence,  or  the  Brady  Campaign  to  Prevent  Gun  
Violence  website  about  gun  laws  (as  would  the  National  Rifle  Association  
website).  
3.          Books.    You  can  find  books  in  “the  stacks”  –the  third  and  fourth  floor  of  the  
library  have  books  that  can  be  found  by  using  the  call  numbers  associated  with  
them.      
ENG  3107:  Writing  for  the  Professions—Business  &  Social  Science  
Rev.6.26.18  
 
 
4.          Reference  works.    A  reference  work  covers  basic  information  about  a  
subject.    These  books  include  encyclopedias,  dictionaries,  atlases  and  specific  
works  like  the  Diagnostic  Statistical  Manual  used  by  psychology  professionals.  
5.          Periodicals.    A  periodical,  i.e.,  a  newspaper  or  magazine,  appears  periodically  
–every  day  or  month  or  year.    You  can  find  articles  from  periodicals  online  or  in  
physical  newspapers  and  magazines.  Consider  using:  Newsweek,  Time,  Atlantic  
Monthly,  Slate,  Salon,  New  York  Times,  Washington  Post,  Wall  Street  Journal,  or  
the  Los  Angeles  Times.  
6.          Consider  using  films,  interviews,  archival  documents,  podcasts  and  other  
sources.  
When  you  find  a  source,  make  sure  you  save  the  information  about  it  so  you  can  
easily  find  it  again.    Keep  a  record  of  every  source  that  might  have  anything  to  do  
with  your  subject  by  writing  down  the  title  and  author.  
HOW  DO  WE  EVALUATE  RESEARCH?  
You  must  evaluate  sources  for  credibility  and  bias.    To  check  the  credibility  of  a  
source,  find  out  the  qualifications  of  the  author.    A  neuroscientist’s  opinion  of  
how  synapses  in  the  brain  work  is  more  credible  than  my  little  sister’s  opinion,  
while  my  little  sister  probably  knows  more  about  shoes  than  the  neuroscientist  
does.    Then,  evaluate  your  source  for  bias.  Biased  sources  only  present  one  point  
of  view  or  attempt  to  convince  readers  of  something  particular,  and  so  don’t  
always  show  the  whole  picture.    Check  for  bias.    Read  the  “about”  page  of  a  
website  or  read  through  the  article  or  book  and  ask  yourself  what  objections  
someone  who  disagrees  with  the  author  might  have.  It  the  author  doesn’t  
acknowledge  those  objections,  the  source  might  be  biased.    For  example,  if  you  
research  scientific  weight  loss  strategies,  the  Hydroxycut.com  website  is  a  biased  
place  to  get  information  because  they  are  trying  to  sell  readers  their  product.    
.com  means  commercial,  and  that  indicates  the  owner  of  the  website  tries  to  sell  
products  or  services.    If  you  use  any  .com  as  a  source,  you  need  to  show  readers  
its  bias  and  use  it  as  an  example  of  marketing,  rather  than  as  a  credible  source.
