  First-Year Writing and Rhetoric  - Annotated Bibliography   Text  — typed, single-spaced with one-inch margins and 12-point font  Page numbers  – in a header (MLA)  Title  – your research question (approved ahead of time by me) Paper Length:  as needed  A bibliography is simply a list of sources you have gathered that relate to your intended topic in some significant way. An annotated  bibliography is a descriptive list. It is a way to begin your research for the literature review and deliberative essay assignments that  will follow.  "Annotated" means that, unlike a standard bibliography, you will include two paragraphs after each source citation:       (1)  In the first paragraph you will summarize the content of the source: There is no specified length for an annotation. Summarize in a few sentences (four to seven, or so) the main points that the  author raises.  Do not pull your summary from the abstract.  If you write your based on the abstract, the source will be  disqualified.       (2)  In the second paragraph you will speculate how you will use the source in relation to your intended project or compare its  content to that of other sources.  Here you consider how this article relates to other articles you have read on this topic, how it might be useful to you in  your research, or how you might be able to use the information in your final deliberative essay.
