Collection of citations related to a large project Each citation includes written information about the source (how useful it was, what info it contained, etc.)
EVERYONE Every student working on a NHD project must submit an annotated bibliography of all resources used in completing their project Must have a minimum of 5 different sources books Journals online sources
Complete as you go Save all citation information as you research and make notes about how you used the source and what your opinion was of it as a source Annotated Bibliography is due on December 10, 2010 with your completed project
Important practice for future research projects in high school, college, and at work Gives authenticity to the work you have done on your NHD project
Keep a list of sources and notations of how you used the source Determine what type of source it is by looking at.. Is it a website? Book? Magazine? Journal? Picture?
Create a citation using the correct format outlined in the annotated bibliography template Add new entries in alphabetical order by author’s name or the first important word in the title if there is no author Following MLA format, use a hanging indent for your bibliographic information. This means the first line is not indented and all the other lines are indented four spaces
For each entry, write an “annotation” that contains one or more of the following types of information and is approximately 100 words in length. Explanation of main points and/or purpose of the work—basically, its thesis—which shows among other things that you have read and thoroughly understood the source. Verification or critique of the authority or qualifications of the author. Comments on the worth, effectiveness, and usefulness of the work 2 to 4 sentences to summarize the main idea(s) of the item 1 or 2 sentences to relate the article to your research topic, your personal experience, or your future goals
Begin your annotation immediately after the bibliographic information of the source ends Title your annotated bibliography "Annotated Bibliography" or "Annotated List of Works Cited." Edit for conventions errors and confirm that all entries are in alpha order and you have met the minimum and maximum requirements for type of entry Confirm that you have at least 5 DIFFERENT sources included and adequately annotated
This example uses the MLA format for the journal citation. NOTE: Standard MLA practice requires double spacing within citations. Waite, Linda J., Frances Kobrin Goldscheider, and Christina Witsberger. "Nonfamily Living and the Erosion of Traditional Family Orientations Among Young Adults." American Sociological Review 51.4 (1986): 541- 554. Print. The authors, researchers at the Rand Corporation and Brown University, use data from the National Longitudinal Surveys of Young Women and Young Men to test their hypothesis that nonfamily living by young adults alters their attitudes, values, plans, and expectations, moving them away from their belief in traditional sex roles. This strongly supports my research project into the living arrangements of teens and the impact it has on their success in school. I used this information to write the research portion of my guidelines and I also used one of the experiments as part of the hands-on section of my guidelines and collected my own data, which I have included in my Specialty Portfolio. This article was well written and informative and I have sought out other studies by these same researchers because this sources was so useful.
Let’s look at an example together! Fitzgerald, F. Scott. The Great Gatsby. New York: Scribner, 1925. This source was an excellent resource for my studies on the golden age of the 1920’s. It accurately reflects the emotions of the era and the carelessness of the rich. It was an excellent character study of a poor man trying to be something he is not, which directly connects with my social research project.
