Listening Research Article Review
In order to ensure proper article/research study selection for your Listening Research assignment (annotated bibliography) this week you need to identify your 10 research studies for your annotated bibliography. You will need to submit a list of your articles/studies in APA or MLA format (just like you are doing an bibliography for a paper). Along with the bibliographic reference please include the link of where you found the article if it was located online or through the EMU Library Databases. Please complete this in a Microsoft Word Document and submit it to the drop box.
Possible Topic Ideas: These are just a few areas you could focus on. Feel free to choose one of these or pick your own. Be creative!
• Listening and Sales
• Listening and the Classroom
• Therapeutic Listening
• Listening and Business
• Teaching Children to Listen
• Listening and Marketing
• Courtroom Listening
• Discriminative Listening
*Please note. I will be “spot checking” everyone’s articles;however if I am unable to locate the source (meaning that it is not available online or easily accessed at the EMU library) I will not be able to evaluate the content. If you have questions about articles that fall into this category, please set up a time to meet with me to evaluate those sources. Also, I will be checking for academic nature of the articles, not content and relation to your subject. Be sure that all articles fall under the theme you have chosen.
Familiarize yourself with the overall research project assignment details below to understand what’s needed above.
Listening Research Assignment: For this assignment, you will be doing a survey of the research available in the field of Listening. The first step will be to choose a topic that relates to listening. You will then need to Find, Read, and Analyze 10 studies, articles, books, textbooks (excluding our own) and put together an annotated bibliography. Once the annotated bibliography is complete, you will then write a short (2 Pages Maximum) conclusion paper about what you learned. As always, I am available for help during all aspects of your project.
What is an annotated bibliography?
An annotated bibliography is a list of citations from Journal articles, books and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief paragraph that summarizes the article. The purpose of this type of assignment is to give you a survey of the research that is available in the Listening field.
Assignment Details

o Five of the sources must be journal articles where a study has been executed and a conclusion drawn.
o Of the five studies, you must have a fair representation of Quantitative and Qualitative studies.
o The other five sources may be from books or articles found in journals.
o Pure internet resources (resources that are strictly websites and not in print) will not be accepted as scholarly sources.
• Each annotation (short paragraph) must be a summary of the article
o Abstracts will not be accepted as complete articles
• Must follow either MLA or APA documentation styles
Short Conclusion Paper
• Roughly 2 Pages double spaced, 12 Pt. font; well written, grammatically correct.
• What did you learn about your topic from these articles?
• Has your perspective changed from what you learned?
