The purpose of annotations – Essaylink

 

 

An annotated bibliography is a bibliography that gives a summary of each of the entries. The purpose of
annotations is to provide the reader with a summary and an evaluation of the source. Each summary should be
a concise exposition of the source’s central idea(s) and give the reader a general idea of the source’s content.
An annotation should include complete bibliographic information for the source. First, Read through the
highlighting, underlining, and notes of the main points from the two of the articles you annotated previously.
Then, Write an annotation summary of the main ideas/points for each of the two chosen articles (2) using the
formula below. Try to use your own words as you write your summary. Each summary should be a minimum of
5 sentences/125 words typed.
The format: Sentence 1-2: Summarize (Highlight Blue): What are the main arguments? What is the point of this
article? What topics are covered? If someone asked what this article is about, what would you say?
Sentence 2-3: Evaluate (Highlight Green): Is it a useful source? How does it compare with other sources in
your bibliography? Is this information reliable? Is this source biased or objective? What is the goal of this
source?
Sentence 3-4: Reflect (Highlight Pink): Was this source helpful to you? How does it help answer your thesis?
How can you use this source in your research project? Has it changed how you think about your topic?
These are the articles:
