An Outline of the Writing Assignments in WRTG 391
In the Week 1 checklist, you found a link called, “Video–On WA#1 Summary of Research Studies,” which
outlines and provides directions for completing the first formal writing assignment.
The video will also discuss methods for assessing sources critically. You will use your analytic, critiquing
skills to develop a Summary of Research Findings. The Summary of Research Findings assignment asks
you to look closely at several sources and to assess them using specific criteria: source citation,
definitions/key terms, focus of study, methodology, findings, and personal reflections.
Please watch the video introducing the WA#1: The Summary of Research Findings and read the
description of the WA#1 formal assignment.
After watching the video a few times, please answer the following questions:
1. What aspect of the WA#1 assignment strikes you as the most challenging? Why?
2. What skills will a student have to employ to successfully complete WA#1?
3. How will those skills benefit a student when completing the rest of the formal writing assignments
in WRTG 391: WA#2 Critical Annotated Bibliography, WA#3 Summary of Research Sources, and
WA#4 Niches and Gaps Essay? (You may need to read the descriptions of those assignments to
help you to answer this question.)
If not, please describe why you think there is not a logical progression between two or more assignments.
Please write a paragraph of 5-10 sentences in responding.
Practice in Writing a Critical Annotated Bibliography
Your second writing assignment in WRTG 391 will be a Critical Annotated Bibliography.
After you have watched both of the following videos: -Video on WA #2 — Approaching the Critical
Annotated Bibliography and -Video tutorial — How to Write an Annotated Bibliography Please perform the
Please access the article, “The CSI Effect at University: Forensic Science Students’ Television Viewing
and Perceptions of Ethical Issue,” by Roslyn Weaver, Yenna Salamonson, Jane Koch, and Glenn Porter.
Here is the article also also: “The CSI Effect”
This article is in the e-reserves section of your class. You can access the article by taking the following
Select Class Resources
Select the icon for eReserves in the middle of your page.
In the list of items that appears, locate the article and download it.
After accessing the article, imagine that this is one of your articles for your Critical Annotated
Bibliography. Please complete the following in responding to this discussion thread:
1. List the article in APA format, as the second video describes.
2. Write a 150-to-200-word summary/critique of the article in which you not only summarize the
article but also note what is scholarly and strong about the source. Please refer to the article
“How to Write an Annotated Bibliography” here King-How to help you in evaluating the strengths
in this source, using two terms from the list we will have reviewed in class from this article in the
latter sentences of your annotation.
Here is a good sample of correctly formatted annotated entries as well: Sample Critical Annotated
Bibliography 2017 to help give you a boost.
In addition, mention whether it will be a possible article for Writing Assignment #3.
Again, you are not necessarily using this article in your Critical Annotated Bibliography. However, this
exercise is designed to help you become familiar with listing a source in APA format and with writing a
critical annotation for it.
Please also respond to one classmate using 1+1 feedback which is explained in the Week 0 sub module
by Sunday, March 26 by midnight, providing one compliment on one aspect of the student’s post that is
noteworthy and one question on an aspect of the post that you feel would help to inquire about more or
make a suggestion on some aspect of the post that you feel you can make a suggestion about to help in
some way (i.e. APA format of the student’s citation).
Library Exercise #1
This discussion thread is designed to help you become familiar with OneSearch. OneSearch is a service
that is available through UMUC’s Library and Information Services website. It allows a user to locate
scholarly articles and other resources through a single search engine.
Please watch Library Tutorial #1.
Then respond to this discussion thread by answering the following question and completing the following
1. What topic are you considering for your Critical Annotated Bibliography (and all the coursework in
391)? In other words, on what general area of interest are you going to locate 12 scholarly
2. Find one article for your Annotated Bibliography using the tips mentioned in the tutorial. Then list
the source in APA format and write your summary/critique of 150-200 words using the format
overviewed in class with the “How to Write an Annotated Bibliography” article to provide two
terms at the latter end of the annotation that assess its scholarliness. Here is a Sample Critical
Annotated Bibliography 2017 also to help with the format.
