Create an Annotated Bibliography using three of the readings and/or video assigned for Module 3.
Below is a sample of an Annotated Bibliography entry for one source. The entry includes the source (in APA Style) followed by two paragraphs: 1) a summary of the source and 2) a reflection on how the source will be used in one's own research
Stanhope, H. (2010, August 11). How low can you go: living on minimum-wage in America. American Living, 1, 63+.
This article explains the author's experiential research in which she attempts to ascertain whether it is currently possible for an individual to live on a minimum wage in America. After shadowing a waitress, a maid in a cleaning service, and a Walmart sales employee for six months, Stanhope summarizes her experiences and reflects on her findings, including the individuals' relationships with fellow workers and their financial struggles.
While my paper addresses single parenting, Stanhope's article is especially effective in the portion of my essay that addresses employment. One of my supporting points addresses the difficulty single parents’ face as they attempt to balance rearing a family while providing financially. Specific quotes from the workers who were shadowed will provide support for my points through real life examples. Further, Stanhope provides scholarly research on the economy and the rising cost of living in America today, which also lends support and credibility to my thesis.
