  2. The Annotated Bibliography… • encourages you to think critically about the content of the works you are using, their place within a field of study, and their relation to your own research and ideas. • proves you have read and understood your sources • establishes your work as a valid source and you as a competent researcher • situates your study and topic in a continuing professional conversation • provides a way for others to decide whether a source will be helpful to their research

  3. The Annotated Bibliography… • Bibliography according to MLA citation style. • Brief explanation of main points and purpose of the work. • Comments on the effectiveness and usefulness of the work in terms of your own research project. • Verification or critique of the authority or qualifications of the author (= researcher’s ethos). • Point of view or perspective from which the work was written. • Relevant links to other work done in the area.

  4. Sample Summative Annotations

  5. Workshop • Revise your own annotated bibliographies using the handout provided. • We’ll have mini-conferences in case you want to discuss your research topic with me. • When you’re done, exchange bibliographies with a partner and check for correct formatting and completeness of annotations.

  6. Homework for Wednesday • Draft your “mission statement” as part of your feeder 3.1 and upload it to our website by Wednesday (Post Your Work > Week 12 > Mission Statement): • “Formulate a paragraph of at least 150 words outlining the problem your research project will address—what is the scholarly debate which you are joining, who would be interested in or affected by the issue, what are the assumptions underlying your impulse to research your issue?”
