Transcript of Annotated Bibliography

Why do you write an annotated bibliography?
•Learn more about what other people are saying about your topic. You need to have perspective on different viewpoints.
•Help other researchers.
Annotated Bibliography Bibliography Summarize and Evaluate your Sources Activity An extended works cited page. It has all of the sources you cited, as well as all of the sources you have used as research.

You may not cite all of these sources, but they have all contributed to your understanding of the topic.

Example: If you are defining family, you may read an article that tells about how a woman considers herself part of multiple families. You may not use that article in your paper, but her story has influenced how you think about your topic. Annotation Think about the poems or other documents you have been required to annotate. When you annotate, you make notes that help you analyze the piece as a whole.

Summarize and evaluate the sources in your bibliography.
Annotations are written in paragraph form, after you cite your source in MLA format. Annotations can range from a couple of sentences to a couple of pages.
Summarize: You would address the following questions
1.What is the source’s claim? (What are they arguing?)
2.What topics does the source address?
3.What is the book/article/interview about?

1.Is the source useful?
2.Is the information given by the source reliable?
3.Do you see any biases from the source? Is it objective?
4.What is the goal of the source? Imagine that you are writing an argument about Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation. Read the news article, and write an entry for an annotated bibliography. You are writing the annotation for the article as whole. You should both summarize and evaluate the source.
