  1. Develop a key word/phrases list for source searches for your research topic.


  • Use the techniques you learned in the Module #6 Notes and slideshow; find at least six [6] key phrases or words that you can use in searching for sources for your research topic. 

  • Add to this blog as you discover more effective key words and phrases.

  • Above the list include your research topic or main research question.

  • Continue to search for Key terms in both and CUNY+ search engine.

  • Of course if you find a good source make a note of it to find it later.



  1. Find two potential sources >>> Summarize the sources & Find common themes. 

    Use the techniques presented in the Module #6 notes and slide shows to find ONE article in a database and a SECOND article from the Internet.  Save digital copies of the articles and their bibliographical information; print-out the articles.  Number each article for later reference. THEN – Do the following:


PREPARATION FOR ASSIGNMENT à Read and annotate the articles.  You can annotate on the print-out if you wish. NOT TO BE COLLECTED.  These annotations will aid you in forming SCCUDy BPs.  Be sure to add subjective annotations when you see similar themes between the sources.


  • INCLUDE IN YOUR BLOG àMain research question at top of assignment.

  • INCLUDE IN YOUR BLOG àWrite a brief summary of both articles.  Be sure to include in-text citations.

  • INCLUDE IN YOUR BLOG àAPA bibliography of both articles.

  • INCLUDE IN YOUR BLOG à Similar themes – Do you find any similar specific ideas or themes discussed in these two articles?  If there are no similar themes find a third article (or secondary source) that includes a theme from one of the first two sources you have found and then do the following: List the similar theme(s) from the secondary sources (articles). Discuss each similar theme as follows à


  • Name the common theme(s) – BRIEFLY

    NOTE: Keep your Research Paper Question in mind as you read secondary sources. Then, read and annotate only those areas you will need to help you answer your paper’s question.


    Due date – Sunday evening – or as soon as possible  à

    Research Step #4 – Annotated Bibliography.   

    You are now finding sources for your research paper.  An annotated bibliography is a report of the important sources you will be using for a research paper.  For this assignment you will develop an annotated bibliography with three to five articles you will use for your paper. You can start with the articles you have found so far.   Make sure that at least one of your sources comes from a database and one from the Internet; the third source can come from any credible source.


  • Suggestion: See Module #6 Notes for definition and examples of an annotated bibliography.

  • To start.  You have already begun to develop this project; after you have a third article write up the annotated bibliography and submit via the Bb Assignments tool in this Module #6.

  • Be sure to – Use the formatting for an annotated bibliography shown in Module #6 notes.

  • Submitting this work – In a WORD (.doc) file using the Assignments tool in Module #6 or in the Assignments folder in Bb.
