The topic that I am considering for my annotated bibliography is a comparison of education in Europe and the United States. This topic interests me because there are elements of both that are positive, and we can learn something from sharing ideas about education. Some of the best school systems in the world are found in Europe, and I am interested in what they are doing differently that makes them so effective.
One part of the annotated bibliography project that excites me is getting to know more about this through research, particularly if there is information I can use to help improve my own education. The choice of topic is also something that excites me, so I am looking forward to learning about something that I have not researched yet. I am also interested to see what the results of my research are.
I have conducted research on many topics in the past, both for personal interest and for school projects. I think it is a good way of learning because it means you have to look into topics more deeply and it is an active process compared to the classroom. I was interested in the recent election, for example, so I did some personal research on each of the candidates and the election process. This helped me to understand how government works, and the different issues that candidates were supporting or against.
It was challenging to find unbiased sources because many news outlets had their own favorite candidate, so part of the process was making sure I got a balanced view. I think this is vital in the research process and it is important to consider a variety of sources when conducting research, ultimately coming to your own decision based on this information.
