Open Posted By: highheaven1 Date: 14/10/2020 High School Case Study Writing

Overview

Summarize three examples of research on a topic of your choice. Outlining what has been written with brief summaries is called an annotated bibliography (definition (Links to an external site.) and example link (Links to an external site.)). This is an opportunity to do some exploratory reading on a subject and establish a clearer vision of your RQ. Reading research on your subject will help shape your ultimate proposal.

Purpose

Now that you have had a chance to evaluate the types of theory you find useful, we will begin the more formal paper process by looking at what others have discovered. This paper involves two components.

Refining your working research question;

Composing an annotated bibliography of secondary, scholarly research on your research question.

At this stage, your RQ will likely be unrefined and more like a general topic. This is fine. To prepare for our final paper, you will refine your RQ. The RQ may be a continuation of the one you have been working on or a new question. It is useful to model your RQ on those of the theorists we’ve read and discussed in class, but you can also take inspiration from questions in the work you summarize. To begin refining your topic, we will continue to look at scholarly research as we build our later stage of the paper, the synthesis.

The annotated bibliography will summarize three pieces of peer-reviewed scholarship that relate to your preliminary RQ. An annotated bibliography offers summaries of authors' works in alphabetical order. The research should formally identify ‘what others have said’ about a topic and refine your questions about media. Stick to scholarly sourcesLinks to an external site. for this assignment.

Purpose Now that you have had a chance to evaluate the types of theory you find useful, we will begin the more formal paper process by looking at what others have discovered. This paper involves two components.

1. Refining your working research question; 2. Composing an annotated bibliography of secondary, scholarly research on your research question.

At this stage, your RQ will likely be unrefined and more like a general topic. This is fine. To prepare for our final paper, you will refine your RQ. The RQ may be a continuation of one you have been working on or a new question. It is useful to model your RQ on those of the theorists we’ve read and discussed in class, but you can also take inspiration from questions in the work you summarize. To begin refining your topic, we will continue to look at scholarly research as we build our later stage of the paper, the synthesis.

The annotated bibliography will summarize three pieces of peer-reviewed scholarship that relate to your preliminary RQ. An annotated bibliography offers summaries of authors' works in alphabetical order. The research should formally identify ‘what others have said’ about a topic and refine your questions about media. Stick to scholarly sources (http://guides.lib.berkeley.edu/c.php? g=83917&p=3747680) for this assignment.

Detailed Instruc�ons: Literature Search and Summary 1. Search out (https://scholar.google.com/scholar?hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C5&q=Media+Theory&btnG=) and review abstracts of articles to

gauge their relevance to your RQ and broader topic. 2. Once you have narrowed your search in this way, look over several in more detail (abstracts) to see if they have potential to

substantially inform your reader's understanding of your RQ and topic. 3. Once you have found three that you believe effectively illuminate your subject or lend to your understanding, read them closely to

compose the summary. 4. In your own words, summarize the main or most relevant points of each article, report, book or book section. Summaries should

touch on the argument, method, and type of theory used.

Format Each summary should be 2-3 paragraphs. All three summaries should not exceed 2 1/2 pages combined (double-spaced, 12pt Times New Roman font, 1-inch margins). Start this assignment by offering a brief overview (2-3 sentences) describing how you see your topic taking shape considering this initial research. You should reference page numbers with APA in-text citations when paraphrasing authors. Include full APA citation references page (not included in the total page count).

Tips How do I select and narrow my topic? Early research often modifies the research question in surprising ways, so allow your initial research to help shape your RQ. Your research question should be grounded, not too speculative.

TOO BROAD/SPECULATIVE

Is it wrong to share music files on the Internet?

Do big media companies manipulate public opinion?

MORE FOCUSED/GROUNDED

How has Internet file sharing affected the earning potential of musicians?

In what ways have large mergers among media companies influenced journalism?[1]

The General Rubric focuses on the qualities of

the description of points of research findings and/or research questions pursued by the researchers the thematic relevance of the pieces of research for the RQ proposed thoroughness and accuracy of descriptions freedom from grammatical, typographical errors precision in use of language (not vague) and sentences structures the APA format (titles do not repeated in body of summary; specific page citations for details
