Module 1 – SLP
Developing Your Project Proposal
The Session Long Project of this course will be where you begin the process of becoming an expert on the problem you have chosen ( The kind of information I will be looking for in particular relate to conservation of water resources, policies and acts protecting against water pollution, analysis of water pollutants, and existing initiatives by the government and the public towards protecting water resources.) to address by assembling the scholarly materials gathered for your Case assignments into an annotated bibliography (annotated bibliographies were introduced in MHS 504). Your bibliography should conform to American Psychological Association (APA) formatting guidelines. You will accumulate sources and write annotations as you gather new scholarly materials every week and submit updated versions of your bibliography at the conclusion of each module (the final version of your annotated bibliography is due at the conclusion of Module 4). Remember, your annotations should capture sufficiently the essence of what the source document was about and any critical details you will want to be able to recall as you begin drafting your report, plan, etc.; for this reason, tremendous care should be taken in drafting your annotations.
Your Task for This Assignment
For Module 1, identify a minimum of 5-8 scholarly sources (at least 5 of which must be peer reviewed) and provide annotations for each. Upload this initial draft of your annotated bibliography to the SLP 1 Dropbox by the conclusion of this module.
SLP Assignment Expectations
· You are expected to consult the scholarly literature in preparing your paper; you are also expected to incorporate relevant background readings.
· Your paper should be written in your own words. This will enable me to assess your level of understanding.
· Proofread your paper to ensure that grammar and punctuation are correct, that reference citations conform to APA guidelines, and that each part of the assignment has been addressed clearly and completely.
· Your assignment will not be graded until you have submitted an Originality Report with a Similarity Index (SI) score <20% (excluding direct quotes, quoted assignment instructions, and references). Papers not meeting this requirement by the end of the session will receive a score of 0 (grade of F). Do keep in mind that papers with a lower SI score may be returned for revisions. For example, if one paragraph accounting for only 10% of a paper is cut and pasted, the paper could be returned for revision, despite the low SI score. Please use the report and your SI score as a guide to improve the originality of your work.
Length: 2–3 double-spaced pages.
