Child Vaccination Controversy Discussion
Week 5 Discussion 1: Annotations:
Initial Post Instructions
This week’s lesson presented a model of an annotated bibliography. Review the model, focusing on the components of the entry:
Research a new source for your Pro-Con Position Paper (ideally, seek one that is in opposition to your stance/side). Then, draft 1 reference entry and 2 paragraphs for this new source. Make sure to cite your source in APA format.
Follow-Up Post Instructions.
Respond to at least two peers or one peer and the instructor. For peer feedback this week, please review the Guidelines for Evaluating Sources in our textbook (Seyler & Brizee, 2018, pp. 281-282). Consider the following prompts as you provide feedback to your peers:
What is the purpose of the text?
Can you locate the author’s credentials?
Estimate the credibility of the text.
Is this source an appropriate level for this degree of academic writing?
Is the source up-to-date?
Do you agree with how your peer intends to apply the source?
Can you think of any other applications?
Do you notice any inaccuracies in the APA formatting?
Further the dialogue by providing more information and clarification.
Note: If you see that someone has already received feedback from two peers, please choose to help a peer who has yet to obtain feedback.
Minimum of 3 posts (1 initial & 2 follow-up) APA format for in-text citations and list of references
