Need help with an assignment of 6 pages due tomorrow. See the attachment for details. I need a guarantee for A or B grade else I’ll ask for a refund.
Here is an example of how your annotated bibliography should look: Annotated Bibliography Example (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..
Your annotated bibliography must include five sources – one book, one article from an academic journal (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., one article from a periodical (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. (daily/weekly/monthly newspaper or magazine; it may be online or in print), one primary source (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., and one image (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. (a visual representation of something, such as a painting or photograph). The primary source and/or image you choose may come from our required textbook, Give Me Liberty!, but the book itself may not be used as your book source.
An annotated bibliography entry consists of two components:
- The Citation
One citation format can be used for all source types — book, website, video, etc. Students are required to locate the “core elements” on their sources: the author’s name(s), the title, the title of the container, any other contributors associated with the source, the version, any numbers (such as the volume for a book or an episode number for a television show), publisher, publication date, and the location.
For the actual citation, these core elements are placed in this format:
Author. Title. Title of the container. Other contributors, Version, Number, Publisher’s name, Date of publication, Location.
The first line of a citation is flush against the margin, while any subsequent lines are indented. This is called a “hanging indent”.
All verbs, linking verbs, nouns, adjectives, adverbs, and pronouns are major words. When a capitalized word is a hyphenated compound, capitalize both words. Also, capitalize the first word after a colon or a dash in a title.
Students are permitted to break only one MLA citation guideline — Do not include the URL in website citations. I do not need a url to locate an online source.
- The Annotation
An annotation is a comment or explanation — a note. Students are required to write a two-paragraph note for each citation in which you:
Paragraph One — Summarize: What are the main arguments? What topics are covered? If someone asked what this article/book is about, what would you say?
Paragraph Two — Assess: Is the information reliable? Is this source biased or is it objective? How does it compare with your other sources?
- Choosing a Topic and Other Guidelines
You do not have to choose a topic, but your sources need to relate to the time frame of HIST 17A (1450 c.e. to 1877).
Proper nouns: a particular person, place, or thing. These nouns are capitalized — e.g. Reconstruction, Missouri Compromise, and Republican Party.
Introduce a person by using their first and last name. Subsequent reference(s) to that person should be done using the appropriate pronoun (s/he) or their last name only — e.g. Eugene Debs was a leader of the Socialist Party. He was convicted under the Espionage Act during World War One. Debs still received nearly one million votes for president in 1920.
Never use a person’s first name only — e.g. In March of 1776, Abigail wrote a letter to her husband, John Adams.
When using a direct quotation or paraphrasing an author’s work, place an in-text citation after the borrowed information. Insert in-text citations at the end of the sentence — preceding punctuation. In-text citations are generally made up of two items: the author’s last name and the page number. If there isn’t an author, use the first item in the full citation entry.
Here is an example of how in-text citations can be arranged and formatted:
With new territory acquired after the Mexican War, “slavery moved to the center stage of American politics” (Foner 493).
Adhere to the British style — only place punctuation inside quotation marks when that punctuation is part of what is being quoted — e.g. “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”
