A bibliography is a list of sources (books, journals, websites, periodicals, etc.) one has used for researching a topic. A bibliography usually just includes the bibliographic information (i.e., the author, title, publisher, etc.), so that a reader knows where the information came from. An annotated bibliography, on the other hand, usually includes a summary and/or evaluation of each of the sources, and for this assignment, you will also write a reflection.
Each entry in your annotated bibliography should include all6 parts (citation, medium, summary, persuasive appeals/evidence, strengths/weaknesses, reflection) in each annotation. (See section 6.6 in the Student Guide to read about annotated bibliographies and access examples.)
• Citation: For each entry, begin with the citation in a professional style (MLA unless you have reason to use a different one).
• Medium: What is the medium (medium=type. For example: newspaper article, website, scholarly source, interview, et.)?
• Summary: What are the main arguments? What topics are covered? What is the point of the book, article, or interviewee?
• Persuasive Appeals and Evidence: How does the source make its argument? How does it try to persuade its audience?
• Strengths and Weaknesses: What are the strengths and weaknesses of this source? Is the information reliable? Is the source biased or objective?
• Reflection: How does the source fit into your research? Is it useful for you? How does it help you shape your understanding of your topic? Has it changed the way you think about the controversy?
Your annotated bibliography should be a professional style. It will include a total of 8 sources, at least 5 of which must have been published within the last 3 years (2010 and later). You should include at least:
• One popular source
• Two interviews(conducted by you!)
• Two academic journals or other scholarly sources
• One academic print sources
(The remaining sources are up to you.)
