For this assignment you need to locate five (5) sources that you may use for your research paper. Please review the research paper assignment in order to determine if your selected topic will work. The research paper will present a classical argument so you will want to locate sources that support the opposition as well as sources that support the thesis.
Wikipedia and general encyclopedias are not acceptable. If you use these types of sources you will receive a zero on this assignment Also, not more than two works may come from a collection of essays. Do not use the textbook as a source for the annotated bibliography.
For EACH SOURCE you need to give the bibliographic information for the source (this is the same information that you would include in a works cited entry for the source) followed immediately by a short summary of about 50 – 75 words that gives the main points of the source. Next, you will need to have a developed paragraph (about 4 – 6 sentences) that evaluates the source. Finally have a short paragraph that explains how you will use the source and how it relates to your working thesis. This means that each entry will consist of four parts.
Here is a link to a sample on the Purdue OWL website: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/614/03/
List the sources in alphabetical order based on the first word of the entry. The annotated bibliography needs to be double spaced and follow correct 8th edition MLA format. Do not number your sources or use bullets before the sources. Please refer to https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/ for the correct 8th edition MLA format.
