Write an annotated bibliography including at least six sources. An annotation is a summary or an evaluation, and
a bibliography is a list of sources (in MLA style, we call this a “Works Cited” page). A bibliography includes as
much bibliographic information as possible (the author, title, publisher, etc.).
The annotated bibliography is an excellent tool to help you find more information on your research topic and to
begin organizing that information. This assignment will not look like any of your other essays. There is a certain
format you should follow (see the sample on the Annotated Bibliographies handout), as well as certain
information that should be included in each entry.
You are welcome to use the two sources you evaluated and analyzed for the first two essays. Beyond meeting
the required number of sources, each annotation should include a portion that summarizes, assesses, and
reflects on the source.
Think of these annotations as short, clear, and concise source evaluations. Summarize the author’s main idea(s),
assess how each author makes his or her argument, and reflect on how you could use the source in your own
research. Each section should be 1-2 sentences long.
The goal for this assignment is to help you work towards the final research project. Annotated bibliographies are
a great way to keep research organized and keep track of the purpose of each individual source.
