Assessment 3a: Annotated Bibliography (500 words) 

Students are to research and prepare an Annotated Bibliography. This list will use one of the essay questions set for assessment three as the basis. The essay question that you select for Assessment 3a will be the same essay question that you will respond to in Assessment 3b when you write the full essay. Choose carefully.

Some of the questions will not be covered in lectures until the second half of semester, depending on which question you choose you may need to read ahead. The aim of Assessment 3a, the Annotated Bibliography, is to get you to begin researching, reading and preparing ideas that will help you write a well researched, planned and thought out final essay. To this end please follow the instructions outlined below in preparing your Annotated Bibliography.

STEP ONE: Select only ONE question from the four options detailed below in order to research and write your Annotated Bibliography:

  1. Assess the claim that crime is socially constructed. Illustrate your argument by using contemporary examples.
  2. Assess the historical significance of colonisation on the criminalisation of race in Australia. Illustrate your argument by using contemporary examples.
  3. Analyse the role of sexual identity in criminal justice outcomes. Illustrate your argument by using contemporary examples.
  4. Analyse the way globalisation has changed contemporary understandings of crime and criminal justice. Illustrate your argument by using contemporary examples.

STEP TWO: Once you have selected your question, identify two different sources that could be used to answer your chosen
essay question. These two sources will include:

  • One peer reviewed journal article (Scholarly) and either,

  • A second peer reviewed journal article (Scholarly) or,

  • One newspaper article (Nonscholarly) or,

  • One government report (Scholarly) or,

  • One book chapter (Scholarly)

Based on the above, one of your two sources MUST be a peer reviewed journal article.

STEP THREE: Having identified your two sources, you are to summarise and evaluate each source in relation to its relevance to your chosen essay question.
