Annotated Bibliography Guidelines
(Please check the Rubric)
You are to submit an Annotated Bibliography (AB) with your outline. Your AB should resemble a properly documented MLA works cited page with a brief summary, evaluation, and analysis for each entry. See example below. Follow the MLA 8th format: Times New Roman 12 font, double space.
Your AB must contain at least two (2) secondary sources and 3-4 sentences summarizing and explaining how you expect to use the source and why you believe the source is credible. Try to answer the below questions for all your sources:
Summary what are the main findings of the book/article?
Evaluation is the source reliable? What education does the author have or what is the authority of the publication? (Try the CRAAP Test)
Analysis – How does this source support your research? Does it contribute to your topic, support your claims on your topic, or present opposing views for you to refute?
