Assignment

Submit a 750-1000 word annotated bibliography of the selected sources you will use to write Essay #6 (your annotated bibliography will include a short story and a poem from the Backpack Literature textbook and four
essays and/or articles from the TROY Library databases). List your six
sources in alphabetical order, according to author’s last name. Include
all information required by the MLA style for each citation. You can
find this in your Writers Reference textbook or online at https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01…

Definition

A
bibliography is usually thought of as an alphabetical listing of books
at the end of a written work (essay or article, book, book chapter,
etc.), to which the author referred during the research and writing
process. In addition to books and articles, bibliographies can include
sources such as reviews, reports, interviews, or even non-print
resources like Web sites, video or audio recordings. Because they may
include such varied resources, bibliographies are also referred to as
“Works Cited” or “Works Consulted” (the latter can include those titles
that merely contributed to research, but were not specifically cited in
text). The standard bibliography details the citation information of the
consulted sources: author(s), title, date of publication, and
publisher’s name and location (and for articles: journal title, volume,
issue, and page numbers). The primary function of bibliographic
citations is to assist the reader in finding the sources used in the
writing of a work.To these basic citations, the annotated bibliography
adds descriptive and evaluative comments (i.e., an annotation),
assessing the nature and value of the cited works. The addition of
commentary provides the future reader or researcher essential critical
information and a foundation for further research. Composing an
annotated bibliography in the draft stage of a project also helps a
writer identify and assess the sources s/he is working with. Be sure to
include a statement detailing how the source is useful to your research
and how the source will be used in your completed essay.

Composition

While
an annotation can be as short as one sentence, the average entry in an
annotated bibliography consists of a work’s citation information
followed by a short paragraph, roughly 100-150 words in length, which
should include brief and selective direct quotes. The annotated
bibliography is compiled by:

    • Considering scope: For
      this assignment, you are required to include the six sources you are
      using to write Essay #6, which includes primary sources — a short story
      and a poem, and four secondary sources — the essays/articles you
      research in the TROY Library databases.
    • Devising a research strategy, conducting a search for the sources, and retrieving them.
    • Evaluating retrieved sources by reading them and noting your findings and impressions
    • Once a final group of sources has been selected, give the full citation data (according to MLA bibliographic style; see your Writer’s Reference textbook) and write an annotation for each source; do not list a source more than once

    Annotations
    begin on the line following the citation data and may be composed with
    complete sentences or as verb phrases (the cited work being understood
    as the subject). The annotation should include most, if not all, of the
    following:

    • Identify the author’s thesis
    • Brief description of the work’s format and content
    • Theoretical basis and currency of the author’s argument or subject/theme
    • Value and significance of the work as a contribution to the subject under consideration
    • Possible shortcomings or bias in the work
    • Any significant special features of the work (e.g., glossary, appendices, particularly good index)
    • Your own brief impression of the work
    • How the source is valuable to your research and how it will be used in your completed essay

    PurposeNot to be confused with the abstract—which merely gives a summary of the main points of a work—theannotated bibliography always describes and evaluates those points. Example (MLA format)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. They find their hypothesis strongly supported in young females,
    while the effects were fewer in studies of young males. Increasing the
    time away from parents before marrying increased individualism,
    self-sufficiency, and changes in attitudes about families. In contrast,
    an earlier study by Williams cited below shows no significant gender
    differences in sex role attitudes as a result of nonfamily living. The
    data has led me to research similar studies and add additional
    perspectives to my thesis claiming that the literary story challenges
    traditional sex roles. I will use this data in my essay to show
    contrasting sex roles attitudes over a period of several decades.
