Please post 4-6 entries for your Annotated Bibliography.Take notes on each article, just as you did for the Analysis essay. Then write a bibliographic entry, following the examples shown in the Annotated Bibliography module, and in the OWL MLA Guide. You should now have at least four entries in your bibliography: the CQR report itself (as you listed it for the Summary essay), the article you analyzed (from the Analysis essay), and these two additional articles.
Next, write a brief annotation for each of the four entries (essentially a paragraph size analysis of 50-100 words – see Annotations, below, and the Evaluative Annotation examples in the module and EmpoWord). These will be the first four entries of your Annotated Bibliography.
You may add two more articles to your annotated bibliography from the Footnotes and/or the Bibliography section of the CQR. To read an article, click the “tiny URL” link in the CQR report, which allows you to see the full text of the article, either on the web or as a PDF. These links are in blue, and available in the PDF version of the report that I have posted on Canvas.
Annotations: Begin each entry with a MLA bibliographic citation for the source (see examples in the Annotated Bibliography module and in the OWL MLA slide presentation, slides 30-41). List all your sources alphabetically by the first word in the citation, which is usually the last name of the author. DO NOT simply copy and paste the entry form the CQR bibliography without reformatting the information, because CQR uses APA format, and your entries need to be in MLA format. Then add your annotation, essentially a paragraph sized rhetorical analysis of the source.
Consider the following questions in your annotations:
1. What is the issue the article addresses? What is motivating this writer? Who is the intended audience?
2. What is the thesis, or major claim? How does the argument answer the issue?
3. What kind of support is given for the thesis? Is the appeal mostly logical, ethical, or emotional? Or a combination? Explain. Is the support appropriate and effective? Explain. What other rhetorical strategies (organization, tone, etc.) do you see in the argument?
4. Are there any problems with the argument the author presents? Does the evidence meet the standards of STAR criteria? Explain.
5. How do you plan to use this source in your research essay? Does it support your thesis, or another claim that is important to your argument? Or does it support the antithesis, and provide a counter argument you need to answer?
