Annotated Bibliography Background To prepare for your Argument Essay, you first need to choose a topic and familiarize yourself with the issues and conversation around that topic. An annotated bibliography will help you identify an issue to research further, think critically about your topic, as well as practice your critical reading skills. This work will also prepare you to propose a detailed plan for your Argument Essay. Assignment After you choose a topic to research, build an annotated bibliography consisting of at least 5 varied and credible sources. Your annotated bibliography should begin with a short introduction, and each entry should consist of the full APA/MLA citation for the source, a rhetorical précis, and a thoughtful evaluation. Requirements – An introduction in which you introduce your topic, what the problem is that you’re researching, and why you’re interested in this topic – At least 5 varied and credible sources – Full APA/MLA citation for each entry – Rhetorical précis for each entry (follow the same guidelines we’ve practiced in the past) – A thoughtful evaluation for each entry. Some questions to consider: Is the source useful/relevant to your research? How? How can you use it in your paper? Does the source have any unique or especially helpful features? How does this source compare to other sources in your bibliography? What’s your reaction to this source? What are your questions? Does the source change how you think about your topic? – Standard formatting (Times New Roman, 12 pt. font, double-spaced, 1 inch margins, hanging indent).
