TSW review their knowledge of research skills TSW be able to define the key purposes of an annotated bibliography Learn what annotated bibliographies are and how they're used in the research process. In this lesson, we'll discuss what it means to annotate and what to include in annotated bibliographies for research essays and projects. OBJECTIVE
1. What is an easy and effective way to cite my sources correctly? (name a website) 2. What domain(s) are definitely reliable? 3. Where do I find TEL/Britanica and other reliable sites for research? 4. How is an abstract helpful and how do I find the entire article? 5. What are some reasons to use "advanced search"? 6. How can I tell if a website is reliable/credible? (the four Rs) RESEARCH REVIEW
What is an annotation? What is a bibliography? Annotation: notes and marks you make in a text while you’re actively reading. Highlighting, underlining, writing in margins, or taking notes are all ways of annotating. Bibliography: the list of sources that appears at the end of research essays and books. (Also known as a work cited page kind of) So what do you think an annotated bibliography would be? PRIOR KNOWLEDGE
When you type up the notes with correct documentation and formatting styles ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY
To your teacher: Show your reader/professor what you’ve used in your research To you: Taking notes while reading allows you to have quotes and examples ready to support your arguments when writing your paper. No going back through and finding them Annotating while reading is a way to form the rough draft (beginnings) of a fully formatted annotated bibliography WHY IS IT USEFUL?
1.What are the main points of the source? 2.Explain the author’s arguments and the topics covered 3.Evaluate or analyze the source. (Was it well researched and does it support your thesis? Was it poorly reasoned and not useful to you? Include this information either way.) 4.Whether you use the source in your final paper or not, it needs to be included in your annotated bibliography. WHAT TO INCLUDE
5.Annotations must be written in your own words. 6.Must be in APA or MLA format 7.Include all bibliographic information: author, date of publication, title, publisher, and place of publication. 8.Annotations are usually only a paragraph long; however, if you are annotating a whole novel it may need to be longer. WHAT TO INCLUDE
What does it mean to ‘annotate’? A.Create a summary B.Create a paraphrase C.Create a list of sources in the correct formatting style D.To highlight, underline, or take notes about the main points in a text or source REVIEW
An annotated bibliography should: A.Have a summary of the main points and a brief evaluation B.Provide sources in alphabetical order and in correct style format (APA, MLA, etc.) C.Be written in your own words D.All of the above REVIEW
The length of an annotation in an annotated bibliography should be: A.Several paragraphs B.At least a half page C.Usually one paragraph long, but some sources may require longer annotations D.One or two sentences is plenty REVIEW
An annotated bibliography is: A.A list of sources used in a research project B.A list of books followed by summaries C.A list of all sources for a research project or essay, each followed by a summary and evaluation D.Notes written while reading a text REVIEW
Final Product: You are required to find two reliable sources using the information that Mrs. Cross taught you and fill out two worksheets provided by me. Type up the information in your worksheet to form an annotated bibliography in MLA format
You may choose one of the following research topics The 19 th Amendment Rebels in petticoats Women in the workforce / women’s unions Women in journalism Inventions made for or by women What are the changing roles of women from the 1830s through 1930s?
Research the topics and answer the following questions to help you narrow down your ideas and choose the topic you would like to focus on. You will turn in to me today your research topic and the answers to these questions regarding your topic. 1.What is this topic about? Can I give a summary? 2.Is there a specific person that I could focus on? 3.Is there a specific time (year ) that is significant to this topic? 4.What was the immediate and long-term impact on economics? 5.What was the immediate and long-term impact on society? 6.Are the sites I visited today reliable?(list the website)
