Annotated Bib

Annotate three sources choose from below. Follow the guidelines below. Your paragraph-long annotation should aim to include the following (use your judgment to determine the order):

provide a brief account of the authors profession (e.g., Journalist Sam Lebovic argues that) and/or particular area of focus (e.g., In his capacity as Legal Director of the ACLU, David Cole argues that) Note: if you are evaluating a scholarly source, such as a peer-reviewed article, make sure you identify the discipline of the scholar(s). Are they working within the discipline of Economics, Psychology, Mechanical Engineering,, Earth Systems Science, and so on?
identify the genre of the source. Is it an op-ed, a news article, a scholarly article, a government report, a blog entry, a press release by an environmental organization, or something else? (Note, just saying that the source is an “article” does not fully describe the genre. What kind of article is it exactly? A magazine article, an academic article, an opinion article, etc.?)
summarize the author’s main argument, point, or findings
describe the key pieces of evidence the author uses to advance his or her claims
describe the purpose of the article/source and how that purpose connects to your project
