Assignment: Create an annotated bibliography (a work cited page with an introduction and summary of each article) for 8-12 LEGITIMATE sources on one of the above articles.

1. This should be in the third person

2. This should be in MLA format

3. You should have an introduction that clearly states your research questions (goals) and the scope of your research- That means an introduction of 3-5 sentences that has a research question – (set of questions that you are trying to answer with your research) and the scope is (what you are trying to cover with your research. For example: Using Climate change, a narrow scope (8 sources) would be the effects of fossil fuel emissions on climate. A broad scope (20 or more sources) would be the effects of deforestation, fossil fuel emissions, corporate and farming run-off, methane gas release from cows, and other topics that effect climate.) For this project you should use a narrow focus.

4. The citations should be in MLA format-consult Perdue Owl by googling MLA format- or simply use Galileo’s automatic citation button on each source. If you go outside of Galileo, then your source must be credible or you lose points. I will check each one.

5. Summary: After each citation, you should have a one paragraph summary that contains the following:

A. a one sentence summary of the whole article and its purpose

B. sentences that summarize the main points

C. information about the author(s) and source that discus their credibility, possible bias, and who funded their research if that information is available

D. discussion of how this source adds to your overall research goal AND how it relates to the other research in the annotated bibliography.
