This assignment will help students work toward their final paper.   An annotated bibliography is a selection of works cited that the student has chosen which will be the source material for the final essay.
The annotated bibliography will be a selection of 4-5 sources from readings and films (max 1 film citations) where students will then provide a 3-5 sentence summary answering:
1: Describe what the the source is (autobiography;  news media;  article;  who/what is the focus?)
2: Why this source has been selected by you for your larger research paper.
Please find links below which provide more examples of what annotated bibliographies look like and how they are formatted.
