Annotated bibliography Assignment
For this assignment you need to locate five (5) sources that you may use for your research paper. Please review the research paper assignment in order to determine if your selected topic will work. The research paper will present a classical argument so you will want to locate sources that support the opposition as well as sources that support the thesis. Your topic needs to be one that can be debated (pro/con, for/against).
The sources that you select may be online, database articles, books, periodicals, interviews, blogs and subject specific encyclopedias. Look for sources that are current and help to develop the thesis of the argument.
When searching the Web, it’s important to critically evaluate your search results:
Look for articles published in scholarly journals
or sources that require certain standards or criteria be met before publication.
Look for materials at Web sites that focus on scholarly resources
(e.g. Google Scholar)
Compare several opinions
by scholars in your topic field, which is another way to verify or evaluate your sources.
Wikipedia and general encyclopedias are not acceptable. If you use these types of sources you will receive a zero on this assignment Also, not more than two works may come from a collection of essays. Do not use the textbook as a source for the annotated bibliography.
For EACH SOURCE you need to give the bibliographic information for the source followed immediately by a short summary of about 50 – 100 words that gives the main points of the source. Next, you will need to have a developed paragraph (about 3 – 5 sentences) that evaluates the source. Finally have a short paragraph that explains how you will use the source and how it relates to your working thesis. This means that each entry will consist of four parts.
