Of your ten citation sources attached, five must be annotated, meaning that you will, (1) briefly assess or evaluate the source, and (2) reflect on the sources use in the research paper.

Examples of an annotated bibliography can be found on the Purdue OWL Website. But, for instance, if I was writing a paper about how to teach expository writing, one annotated source could look like this

Lamott, Anne. Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life. Anchor Books, 1994.

Lamott offers readers a reality check regarding writing, publishing, and struggling with one’s own imperfections during the process. Rather than a practical handbook to composing and/or publishing, this text is indispensable because of its honest perspective, down-to-earth humor, and encouraging approach. Chapters could easily be included in the curriculum for a writing class. Several chapters in Part 1 shed light on the writing process and could serve to generate discussion on students’ own drafting and revising processes. Some of the writing exercises would be appropriate for implementation in the classroom.
