The annotation should do three things: Summarize the article, point out what is important about it, and provide criticisms or point out shortcomings. It should also include the following specific elements:

APA Citation (this will save you lots of time when you are completing your final literature review)

What is the article about?

Summary of the article.

Why was this research performed?

What were the findings?

What are the strengths of the article?

What are the weaknesses?

What are the implications for practice within your respective field or area of interest?

Use the following grid, by cutting and pasting, for your individual annotations:


What is the article about?
Why was the research performed?
Implications for Practice
You will need one blank grid for each article. The table will expand as you write. More information in the bibliography usually means less when you are actually writing your paper. So, it behooves you to be as thorough as possible as you can with this assignment. This grid is designed to assess your understanding of the article and as a tool for you when writing your final paper.


You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument
