4 Summarize What is the source about? What argument(s) is the author making?Explain the source in your own wordsSummary allows you to think about the source in your own way
5 AnalysisWhen we analyze, we are thinking about how useful the source is:What does the source mean for your topic?Does it fit in with other items you are annotating, or with your research idea?Is the source useful?Does the author appear credible?
6 Reflection Think about what the source means to you and your research. Was the source useful for you?Did it expand your understanding of your topic?How can you use this source in your project?
7 Reflection (cont.) What are the main points of the source? Are the arguments and evidence in the source weak or strong?Does it provide supporting data?Does it suggest solutions or improvements?If a policy—does it mention a specific bill?Does it provide or address any policy analysis criteria?
