ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY: First Submissions

Task: as part of your research, you will create an complete annotated bibliography of all works you may use (no less than eight sources, including Carr, and no more than 20 sources). Each annotation should contain two separate paragraphs: 1) a 75-100 word summary of the main ideas of the source and 2) your 75-100 word analysis of the source, including why you think the source is useful in your own research.

Important Note:

It is important to be thorough with this activity because your final paper may only use the sources that you deploy in this annotated bibliography.

How to write an annotated bibliography:

  • First, locate and record citations to books, periodicals, and documents that may contain useful information and ideas on your topic. Briefly examine and review the actual items. Then choose those works that provide a variety of perspectives on your topic.
  • Cite the book, article, or document using MLA style.
  • Write a concise annotation that summarizes the central theme and scope of the book or article. Include one or more sentences that (a) evaluate the authority or background of the author, (b) comment on the intended audience, (c) compare or contrast this work with another you have cited, or (d) explain how this work illuminates your topic.

Due Now:

No less than TWO complete annotations with MLA-style citations (plus your central thesis at the top). ONE of the four must be Carr’s The Shallows. Also the submission must be in alphabetical order.
