Annotated Bibliographies Assignment

I’m working on a english exercise and need support to help me understand better.

Essentially, this assignment consists of two elements that will be blended together:

  • A Works Cited page in MLA format that lists all of the research sources you have found and evaluated thus far for your final paper
  • A 3–4 sentence-long mini-evaluation immediately following each of these source’s citation that shows how and why this source will be useful to your final project (or not). This evaluation should include your interpretation of the source’s thesis or overall focus.

An MLA example, using the source for the above quote:

“Annotated Bibliography.” Handouts and Links. The Writing Center, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 2007. Web. 12 Feb. 2010. This source is a handout made available by a reputable university’s writing center, and describes with great detail and examples what an annotated bibliography is and what purpose it serves. It contains an extensive list of works consulted that could lead me toward additional sources as needed.
