My final topic for the annotated bibliography is childhood obesity, by saying childhood that does include adolescents. The reason why I have chosen it is because it is such an epidemic not only in the United States but in the whole world. It has severely increased within the last couple of decades and shows no sign of declining anytime soon. Obesity leads to many health factors and risks that can easily be avoided with the proper nutrition and exercise. However, in order to do that the person has to have will power and confidence, which seems to be lacking in most cases. Another reason why I chose it was because I was curious about the whole thing. I wanted to know the statistics and if it was genetic or not. Also I know several people who are obese which has lead them to suffer from diabetes.
I have acquired scholarly journals, weekly reports, websites, and books in the library that pertain to childhood obesity. I believe the books are quite handy because one of them goes through and explains and answers just about all of my questions I have toward childhood obesity. Also scholarly journals are useful just due to the fact that they are mostly based on studies so I know the exact number or outcome of the experiment. I find that most websites contain the same material, just worded in a different way so it is hard to find one that contains new and exciting information.
One question I have is that what all are you looking for in the annotated bibliography. I have read over the example up on the course website and also searched for websites that explain it well. So far I am assuming that we just summarize what the source is about and tell who the author’s audience is. However some people who have already completed the assignment in other classes have told me that we are supposed to tell how we are going to use that particular source in a paper, if I were to write one on childhood obesity. So I guess that is my only question or confusion about the assignment.
