The assignment prompt and the way I would have structured it are given below. Of the four sources required for the assignment, I have only found four credible sources that I wanted to use.
Basic Summary:
Format Requirements
● At least 8 sources, with abstracts of 100-150 words
● 12-point font, double-spaced, standard font
● Bibliographic entries clearly formatted
● On the top left hand corner of the first page only: your name, instructor’s name, class, date
● Uploaded document needs to be a doc, docx or a pdf (it cannot be a google link or pages)
Starting research can be a daunting task. As you work to find and evaluate sources, you must also
figure out how they fit within a larger conversation–or if they are part of that conversation at all!
The Annotated Bibliography utilizes the same skills you learned in your Summary paper. In addition
to finding, reading, and understanding sources within your topic area, your goal is to provide a short
annotation of about 150 words or so, which summarizes the source’s main point, other interesting
or useful details, and evaluates its credibility. The final Annotated Bibliography, then, is like a
roadmap for your future projects. Putting it together will help you understand the conversation that
is already happening on this issue.
For each source, you will need to identify the author(s) and publication, as well as provide relevant
contextual information. You should also identify the kind of contribution the source makes,
summarize the position or argument, and assess its credibility. Imagine your reader is someone who
possesses limited knowledge about this issue, but wants to get up to speed quickly. This reader
would want to know the major positions, people, and events associated with this issue, for example,
as well as be able to distinguish between ideas that represent broadly held consensus and those that
are considered marginal. In the next assignment (the Multimodal Literature Review) you will need to
help your reader understand how these sources relate to each other, respond to each other, and offer
similar (or different) points of view or arguments.
