Some points to consider as you read for your final research papers: Never accept

Some points to consider as you read for your final research papers: Never accept anything at face value. Dig for the deeper meaning. Always remember to question and analyze what you read. Consider where sources come from: who wrote the article? What is their affiliation? Do they have a “hidden agenda”? Is there bias? If yes, towards what, and why? Are they authoritative? Do they represent a given ideology? Also, ask yourself: who and what influences your own thinking and beliefs? Where do your values come from?
Your annotated bibliography should have 10-15 entries.
You may include books, academic journal articles, and websites.
You should refer to at least 2 full books, 4-5 peer reviewed scholarly journal articles, and at least four website based articles from either .gov, .org, or .edu websites. Be wary of using overly biased politically based sources.
Note that I encourage the use of Internet resources, since most current information on the course topics are only available via the web. Please use websites with the following extensions: .gov; .edu; and .org. Avoid .com and .net, etc. Your annotated bibliography must also include scholarly books and articles (that may come from a web resource; many scholarly articles and some books are available in full text online).
Include the following elements in each annotated bibliography entry:
Reference
Content or focus
Purpose and usefulness for your project
Comprehensiveness, reliability and accuracy
Limitations
Intended audience (popular or academic)
Quotes, page numbers, and chapter you find useful
Note: Use either the MLA , the APA, or the Turabian documentation format.
