LIRN Annotated Bibliography Assignment Week 5

Assignment: Students will be assigned a body region. Each student will then be responsible for choosing one article from a peer reviewed journal using the virtual library in relation to applied anatomy and kinesiology for the assigned body region. Students must have the article approved by the instructor prior to submission of the annotated bibliography. The instructor will approve the article based on a peer reviewed journal not content or relevance to topic. Students will then be required to write an annotated bibliography on the approved article. Date: Students need to email a copy of the complete research article for approval on no later than

Tuesday 10/16/2020 email at:

The Final assignment is DUE ON November 17, 2020. Assignment will be submitted on google classroom.

Instructions: Students will construct an annotated bibliography. An annotated bibliography is a list of citations of articles, books, and other publications on a particular topic. Each citation is followed by a relatively brief paragraph that summarizes the source’s argument and other relevant material including its intended audience, sources of evidence, and methodology. The assignment will be completed individually and out of class.

The annotated bibliography consists of two elements:

1. The citation in current AMA style format

2. The Annotation – The annotation should consist of one paragraph using whole complete sentences in the third person and should be approximately 150-200 words in length. The assignment should be typed, double spaced, in Times New Roman 12 font, 1” margin.

The annotation should include most, if not all, of the following:

 Explanation of main purpose  Description of content  Focus of article  Relevance of topic  Type of intended audience  Evaluate its method, conclusion and/or reliability  Strengths / weaknesses or biases  Your own brief impression of the work

Assessment: The assignment will be assessed according to the criteria identified in the grading rubric on the attached page.

1. Waters, Eric. Suggestions From the Field for Return to Sports Participation Following

Eric Waters’s, in his 2012 article “Suggestions From the Field for Return to Sports

Participation Following Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction” concentrates on the

treatment of ACL injuries. He supports this by setting examples of specific exercises that treat or

prevent ACL injuries. His purpose is to show how treatment works with an ACL injury and

explain how to prevent it, in order for others to educate themselves with the study that he has

done. His intended audience is physical therapists, doctors, physicians, and athletes.

Water’s article is relevant to my topic because he focuses on rehabilitation of athletes.

Stating, “Preparing a basketball player for an effective return to play requires that the final and

most functional phase of the rehabilitation program encompass a thorough protocol based on

exercises that maintain proper lower extremity alignment throughout all the conceivable

scenarios of a basketball game,” (333) he exemplifies that it is important to perform certain

exercises in order to compete at the best ability.,type.2/article_detail.asp


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.
