    Length: 3-5 pages not including title and reference pages.
    References: Minimum of 3-5 scholarly resources.

    Part 2

    Your annotated bibliography entries should be of two types: those that relate in content to potential research topics of interests to you and annotations that relate to the content of this course. For this first assignment please submit 3 complete annotations of each type. Your Mentor will provide feedback that you should use on all future annotations.

    For each of the Assignment 3 – 11 you should produce at least 2 but not more than 4 annotations. These annotations should become more focused as the course proceeds. These annotations will be submitted as part of the Signature Assignment not on an assignment by assignment basis.

    Length: 3 Annotations of each type with app. 150 words each.
