Your assignment is to present your literature review in anoral presentation 23-25 minutes long. While most published literature reviewsinclude over 100 references, the scope of your literature review will be much narrower.You are required to have a minimum of ten primary references (i.e., papersreporting original research in peer-reviewed journals), but you can alsoinclude more peer-reviewed sources and as many secondary references asnecessary. The area of study reviewed in the presentation will be focused.
1.) Annotated bibliography on word doc:
Once you have assembled the sources you are actually going to use for the project, the next step is to write the annotated bibliography. Your annotated bibliography should include sources you will use for the paper (the minimum of ten sources plus any secondary sources you want to use) and will consist of the following key elements:
For each sourcecomplete bibliographic information in a consistent formatconcise summary of the source (3-6 sentences that tell the necessary details to evaluate the reference)evaluation of the source (assess and reflect on the source; why is it suitable for your paper and how will you use it? 3-6 sentences)
The annotated bibliography will be graded based on the following criteria:
Attached is a more in depth instructions on 2.)presentation outline, and 3.)powerpoint final draft.
You are required to have at least 10 primary references in your literature review project. You
will probably have additional sources that are not primary references. How do you distinguish
primary references from others? Papers that are considered “primary literature” report original
research in peer-reviewed publications, such as a journal or an edited book volume. Peerreviewed publications are the main scholarly journals in a discipline in which any articles that
have been published have gone through a process in which other scientists have reviewed the
manuscript and approved it before publication. Any article that is summarizing a body of work
by themselves or someone else is not a primary reference. Books written entirely by one author
are not primary references. The only books that may contain primary literature are those that are
volumes that are collections of primary articles (e.g., an edited volume from the proceedings of a
scientific symposium or conference; each “chapter” will be by different authors). Sometimes it
may be difficult for you to determine if an article is a primary one or not.
F. Writing the annotated bibliography
Once you have assembled the sources you are actually going to use for the project, the next step
is to write the annotated bibliography. Your annotated bibliography should include sources you
will use for the paper (the minimum of ten sources plus any secondary sources you want to use)
and will consist of the following key elements:
1. a statement of scope establishing the context for your bibliography and your purpose for
compiling it (i.e., what will your paper be about?)
2. For each source
a. complete bibliographic information in APA format
b. concise summary of the source
c. evaluation of the source (assess and reflect on the source; why is it suitable for
your paper and how will you use it?)
See Canvas for a handout that illustrates the components of an annotated bibliography.
The annotated bibliography will be graded based on the following criteria:
1. Quality of the resources. Do you have a minimum of ten primary resources? Are the
resources appropriate to your topic, credible, balanced, and timely?
2. Bibliographic information
a. Completeness: is all of the necessary information included in each entry (e.g.,
authors, title, journal, volume/issue, page numbers, etc.?)
b. Format: is each entry formatted correctly for APA style?
3. Content of annotations. Are the summaries and evaluations of each source complete,
clear, and accurate?
G. Preparing the presentation outline
Choose your title and thesis statement
Develop your title from the topic you have decided upon. The title should be quite narrowly
focused and should accurately represent the scope of your literature review. The title is the first
thing your audience will see and it should give the audience a good idea of what the presentation
is going to be about.
Once you have decided on your title, choose your thesis statement. What will be the main
conclusion you want to draw from the papers you include in the review? What point do you want
to make? Choose this statement carefully and think of several ways to say it, because you’ll need
to make this statement at the beginning and the end of your presentation.
Make an outline
Look at all of the papers you’ve decided to include in the review. What is the body of
information you want to discuss in support of your thesis statement? Develop a logical order in
which to present the information—the outline is critical to having your review well-organized!
It’s very important that you integrate the information from the various articles. You do not want
discuss each article one at a time—i.e., one or two slides per article. The body of the presentation
should be made up of main points in support of your thesis statement—often each main point can
be supported by information from various sources. The body of the presentation should also
include a discussion of specific results from more than one article—be sure to present data tables
and/or figures from your sources. In addition, you can take advantage of the secondary sources
you have read to fill in some of the important background information the audience will need to
know in order to understand the primary papers you discuss.
You may have read review papers about your topic—they often serve as a good introduction to a
particular field of study. Take a look at them again, focusing on their organization and format;
this will give you a good idea of how material can be synthesized and integrated into a review.
Your mentor may suggest a format for the outline. In general, the more detailed your outline, the
more helpful it will be. The oral presentation should generally have the following sections:
2. Overview of Presentation
3. Introduction or Background
a. introduce the topic: why is it relevant? why is it important?
b. provide background information
i. what basic background knowledge is necessary for your audience to
understand the articles you will present? (textbooks and review articles
will be helpful in this section)
c. state your thesis
a. present evidence from your sources in support of your thesis
b. be sure to include figures and/or tables from more than one source
a. reiterate your thesis; summarize the points supporting your thesis
b. include an analysis and critical evaluation of the sources; consider the following
i. What are the strengths and weaknesses of the sources you reviewed? Were
there any problems, flaws, or biases in the experimental design and/or data
ii. What, in your opinion, is the future of this particular area of study? What
work should be done next? What work is being done next?
6. Literature Cited
H. Preparing a Draft of your PowerPoint Presentation
After receiving feedback on your presentation outline, you will begin to draft your PowerPoint
presentation. You will submit a complete draft of the presentation to your mentor for feedback.
The more complete the draft, the more useful the feedback will be!
First, review the grading rubric your mentor and peers will use to evaluate your presentation (see
the last page of this handout). This rubric will give you a sense of what we are looking for in a
good presentation for this course.
Tips for designing the PowerPoint
In designing your PowerPoint, remember that good visual aids are SIMPLE and CLEAR and
BIG. Use large fonts so we can read it in the back of the room. Don’t get too carried away
with the bells and whistles of background graphics, color, and animation. You want the
graphics to enhance your presentation, not detract from it.
When you import graphics into your PowerPoint, be sure that they have good resolution (i.e.,
they are not fuzzy), particularly if you need to enlarge them. This is especially important for
tables and graphs of results imported from a .pdf of your article. (Ask the instructor for help
if you don’t know how to copy and paste materials from a .pdf into your PowerPoint.) It will
sometimes be necessary to re-type a table from the article to ensure that your audience will
be able to get what they need from it.
When you enlarge an object (image, graph, etc.) in PowerPoint, be sure that it increases in
size proportionally on both axes. Select one of the corners of the object to enlarge it, not one
of the edges.
Don’t clutter slides with too much text! The slides are there to help your audience follow
your talk, not to provide notes for you.
You may supplement the PowerPoint slides with other types of media to make the
presentation more interesting and easier to understand. Be sure to try out these components
before your final presentation so you don’t have a technology malfunction in the middle of
