Each annotation must contain the following elements, organized as following:
The Citation: Each source discussion will begin with an MLA-style citation. This is the same arrangement of details that a “works cited” entry uses. Please bold and double-space the citation material.
Identify: Where was this source originally published? If it is from a periodical, is it an editorial or opinion column, or straight news?
Summarize: Summarize the source in a way that will point to its potential importance for your research paper. What are the main arguments? What does the author say is at stake? What topics are covered? If someone were to ask what the central argument of this article or book is about, what would you say?
Assessment/Evidence: First, list the sources this source points to, as support? Then, discuss particularly useful ideas, theories, and evidences in more detail. Is this a useful source for your work? How does it compare with other sources in your bibliography?
Your Stance: Do you agree with the author’s arguments? Disagree? Are you halfway between? How might the author’s analysis help you shape your own argument? Does the source present a counter-argument you might consider? Has it changed how you think about your topic? Finish the entry with a reflection on how material the author present might work in your paper.
