Annotated Bibliography Assignment

  1. Choose a debatable topic. It can be any topic you find interesting, just make sure you are very interested in learning and writing about it because this will also be the topic for your next essay. Take care to ensure that it isn’t too broad or too narrow.
  2. Find 6 sources related to your topic, at least 3 of them must be scholarly.
  3. Summarize and evaluate these sources following the instructions given in the example below. Each annotation will have four parts: a citation, a summary, an assessment and a reflection.
  4. Remember to use MLA format for the citation. Don’t forget about your Rules for Writers handbook and Citation Machine for help in creating those citations!
