An annotated bibliography is a paper in which you summarize/paraphrase what the article is about, and includes a critical evaluation of the article. You must include author/s credentials. You must also include a brief statement re why this article is important to your research and/or how you intend to use it. For example, it might contain important background info, statistics, etc. You must also include a quote or two from the article and cite afterwards.

There must be a title page-the title is: Annotated Bibliographies. The heading of the first page of each annotation is a Works Cited listing (with all of the usual bibliographic information). Each annotation must be one and a half to two pages in length. You must have a working link to each article on the Works Cited, or it will count as no article, and will result in a failing grade. There will be a final total of fifteen copies of articles. We will be working on summarizing, paraphrasing, citing, and finding good, scholarly sources.

NOTE: If your topic has multiple viewpoints, one or two articles must address the opposite views.
