Annotated Bibliography. The annotated bibliography is a list of sources with annotations, listed in alphabetical order. An annotation is a one or two paragraph summary and analysis of a source. In preparation for the research paper, students will compose an annotated bibliography (minimum of 10 scholarly/academic sources) on the topic they have chosen for their research paper. An annotated bibliography gives an account of the research that has been done on a given topic and is excellent preparation for a research project. Each annotation should generally include the following items: a summary, an evaluation of the source, and a reflection on its applicability to the research project. This assignment is worth 5% of the final grade.

Again, here are the three parts:

  1. a summary of the text,
  2. an evaluation of the text (it’s significance, etc.)
  3. a reflection on its applicability to your research topic.

With this annotated bibliography the student should also present what they determine their conclusion to the research paper to be.
