For my annotated bibliography I choose to research Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. I choose this topic because I am very interested to learn more about it and I feel sure that I can find many credible as well as useful sources to include in the annotated bibliography. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is a topic that I find interesting because when I was in high I babysat for a child who had Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. His mother was an alcoholic and a drug addict when she became pregnant and never made an effort to get off drugs and become sober. She was less than shocked when he was born and diagnosed with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. She did not want a child anyways so she was not upset when he was taken away from her. After he was taken away from her, his grandmother got custody of him and raised him. I always felt so terrible for him because he could have been a normal child if his mother had not been so careless and actually took care of herself during her pregnancy. Fetal Alcohol Syndrome differs a lot from autism or Down syndrome but children with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome are often mistaken for children with autism or Down syndrome because of the facial features they have. One main reason why Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is different from Autism or Down syndrome is that Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is very easily avoided simply by not consuming alcohol or drugs during a pregnancy. Another reason why I want to research Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is that it is very hard to diagnose. Doctors have a hard time discerning whether children has Fetal Alcohol syndrome until they are around 9 or 10 unless doctors know the drug and alcohol history of the mother of the child. The more people know about Fetal Alcohol Syndrome the better people are able to understand what causes it, how to prevent it, and how to provide awareness to others about Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
I found the library instruction class useful because she provided a lot of clarification on certain topics. I have always known what resources were available but I wasn’t sure hoe to use them before the class.

    What topic have you chosen for the Annotated Bib? Why have you chosen this topic? What, if anything, did you find useful about the library instruction class? Have a great and safe Spring Break.
