Effects of Child Marriage Research Proposal

You chose an important Problem facing the world, which you believe should be solved (at least partially). That Problem is the topic for this Annotated Bibliography (AB). You will also write the Topic Proposal and the Problem Solution Final Paper on that same Problem.

The purpose of the Annotated Bibliography is to record your research notes in a methodical way, so that these notes will be helpful in writing both the Topic Proposal and the Problem Solution Paper.
Relationship with the Topic Proposal
You will be creating the Annotated Bibliography and the Topic Proposal simultaneously. In the AB you will gather the research; then you will use that research to write the TP. You are required to use at least three (3) sources from the AB in your TP.
All of the research that you include in the AB must support your Topic Proposal thesis.
Complete the rough draft as a Word document and submit it to Canvas by the due date.
Write at least three (3) entries, each asking/answering a different research question. (The final draft of the AB will require six (6) entries.) Each entry will include:

  1. The research question answered by the article
  2. The summary of 150-300 words focused on the research question
  3. The full APA-7 bibliographic entry
    Each entry will answer a different research question and summarize a different article to answer that question.

Differences between the AB rough draft and the final draft
The only difference between this rough draft and the final draft you will write later is the number of entries required. Rough draft—three (3) entries; final draft—six (6) entries.

Example Entry
Here is an example of what one entry will look like. Again, you will write at least three (3) of these:
Entry #1

  1. The research question: 
What are the major negative effects of child marriage?

  2. Targeted summary: 
Getting married at a young age has a number of negative effects on children. There are physical, mental, and social problems that occur. One of the major physical problems is that of teenage pregnancy and childbirth. Girls who give birth at a young age are more likely to be injured in the process and suffer medical complications or death. Mental problems may be caused by physical and emotional abuse at the hands of the husband or his family, which is common. One of the most serious social problems is that children who get married are taken out of school and are expected to care for the household, instead of getting a secondary education. Without an adequate education, their opportunities are limited for the rest of their lives.

  3. Full APA bibliographic entry: 
Mark day of girl by fighting child marriage. (2012, October 10). Human Rights Watch. https://www.hrw.gov/news/2012/10/10/un-mark-day-girl-fighting-child-marriage
    Detailed instructions
  4. The research question
    Begin creating the entry by thinking of a research question. Then you will begin your research by looking for an article that answers that question. It is not necessary for the entire article you find to focus on that research question—maybe only a couple paragraphs from the article address your question.
    For example, given the Problem of “child marriage,” one might ask research questions, like, “How widespread is child marriage around the world?” and, “What are the reasons that parents give for marrying off their daughters at a young age?”
    The research questions you ask must help you to advance the thesis of your Topic Proposal.
  5. Targeted summaries
    You will not summarize whole articles. Only summarize the information that answers the research question. If your research question is asking about causes, for example, then only summarize the part of the article that focuses on causes. If your summary strays from answering the question, some points will be deducted.

  6. Full APA bibliographic entry
    The formatting of the full APA bibliographic entry depends on the type of source it is—newspaper, website, scholarly journal, book chapter or other. The Purdue University Online Writing Lab (OWL) gives formatting rules and examples for every kind of source you will need. Here are a few of the most common source types:
    • Webpage: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/reference_list_electronic_sources.html
    • Newspaper: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/reference_list_articles_in_periodicals.html
    • Scholarly electronic journal: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/reference_list_articles_in_periodicals.html
    • Book chapter: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/reference_list_books.html
    • You Tube video: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/reference_list_audiovisual_media.html
    You might use an automatic citation generator. Here is a simple one that is very easy to use:
    • North Carolina State citation builder: https://www.lib.ncsu.edu/citationbuilder/#/default/apa7
    Here is a more sophisticated one that is not so easy to use:
    • MyBib.com: https://www.mybib.com/#/projects/9vGk0Y/citations
    I will deduct points for formatting errors.
