Once you have identified the resources that will be used for your essay, you will want to share why you considered these as most appropriate for your research effort. There are four steps to creating an annotated bibliography:
Find a source.
Cite it (MLA format). This acts as your header for each entry in your bibliography.
Summarize it. Briefly restate, in your own words, the main points of the article/book/video/website you are including in this bibliography. Be sure to maintain a neutral perspective in your summary. (1-3 sentences)
Evaluate it. Here is where you can add your opinion about the source. Use the evaluation to tell the reader what the source contributes to your research question/project. Indicate any bias that you’ve noticed. (@150 words).
