Specifics – Annotated Bibliography:
Unlike a plain list of sources, an annotated bibliography also includes the writer’s annotation or commentary on each source. Each annotation should include the following:
1. Rhetorical information. This includes the source’s rhetorical context, particularly its genre and its purpose and audience. Is this source a scholarly article? An op-ed piece? A blog? What is the author’s purpose and who is the intended audience? Are any political biases present?
2. A summary of the source’s content. Here you should summarize the source’s actual argument.
3. Your evaluation of the source. What are the source’s particular strengths or weaknesses? How useful is the source for specific purposes? How might you use the source for your research project?
4. You are required to have 4-6 sources for your Classical Argument Essay.
5. The annotation for each source should be at least 250 words.
6. Once you have submitted this assignment, you are NOT allowed to use any other sources for your final paper. You are permitted to not use some sources, as long as you use at least 4.
