The purpose of doing annotations is to help you keep track of your research. Now that you’ve chosen an inquiry question, you will be looking out everywhere for source material.  Leave no stone unturned!  Read everything you can get your hands on, whether you annotate it or not, and save everything, in multiple places!!!!!  Jump drives!  Dropboxes!  Emails!

 

For each of these annotations, you will be finding a source (articles, films, books, book chapters, etc) that will help you to understand and develop your curiosity/question.  Your goal is to develop a deep sense of the conversation surrounding your curiosity: what has been said in the past, and what is currently being discussed.  Your annotations will be the building blocks for this paper.  DO NOT MISS ANNOTATIONS!  I have never, ever seen a student successfully come out of this paper with a good grade who has missed more than one.  They are fundamental to the development of your writing.

 

You will be using a variety of perspectives for this assignment—newspaper/magazine sources, and scholarly/academic research on the subject area you have chosen.  You may even look at the issue through literary/art contexts.  This research can include articles from the Library Database, books, journals, etc. that pertain to your topic as long as the articles are at least a minimum of 1500 words.  You will want sources that help your understanding of each of the following: (these might not be all-or-nothing, some information in sources will address multiple areas).

 

1) What is the state of current conversation about your question? How are people talking about this issue, problem, situation? (3 sources minimum—these should represent differing perspectives—but bear in mind there are multiple sides to every issue, so save articles for later that you may need!)

2) What is the background and/or history of the issue(s), problem(s), or situation(s) that your question is focused on? (1 source minimum, some issues will require more than one source)

3) What are possible answers/potential ways of better dealing with the question, or solutions? (1-2 sources)

 

Bear in mind that your final project will make use of about EIGHT sources altogether, so if you find other useful sources, hang on to them by all means!

 

For each source you choose, you will:  (see sample annotations on Blackboard for further formatting clues)

 

·       Offer a proper MLA heading and citation.

·       Define the author’s project:  Introduce your article.  Tell us who wrote it, in what periodical it appears, and something about the author.  You might want to even Google the author if you cannot find information about him/her in the article.  Why should we listen to the author?  Then, define what you see as the author’s project.  What is he/she discussing in the article?  What points is he/she trying to make?  What do you think the purpose of the article is?  This portion of the annotation should be 2-3 full paragraphs that do justice to the reading you have selected.  THIS SHOULD ALL BE IN YOUR OWN VOICE. ANNOTATIONS THAT USE THE AUTHOR’S DIRECT LANGUAGE WILL BE ISSUED A ZERO!

·       Key Concepts:  Here you will pull out what you think of as the most interesting, informative, and useful quotes.  You should find a minimum of 8-10 helpful quotes, or the article simply isn’t rich enough for your purposes.

·       What is helpful and very useful about this source:  Finally, devote the space of one full, well-conceived paragraph to how you can use this source to further your understanding and your research.  Be specific here—if I cannot see how you will use this source clearly, I may ask you to find a source that is more helpful to your project, creating more work for you!

 

The annotations are to be typed, single spaced, Times New Roman, Calibri, or Palatino Linotype font, 11 pt, 1” margins, MLA format all around.  Annotations will be due ON THE DUE DATE, with no exceptions or extensions unless extreme and compelling reasons exist and are described ahead of time.  Printer problems and miscellaneous computer issues are not considered valid reasons for late work.  You'll be evaluated based on the thoughtfulness of your address of the above points as well as your attention to MLA format.
