This annotated bibliography has very specific instructions, so please follow them closely and do not treat this like a general annotated bibliography.
Overall, you should have 10 annotations, each with a full citation. Adding the http address is recommended, though MLA no longer strictly requires this.
5 of your 10 sources should be from EBSCO (I do prefer EBSCO sources for this assignment, though for your actual paper, you are encouraged to use the other library database if you wish). I would also prefer it if you find actual studies to use instead of articles that summarize studies. The reason for this is that you need to include very specific information about the study in your annotation (and later in your paper), including:
1) the credentials of the author or authors
2) the number of subjects and who they are
3) a brief overview of the method
4) one or two specific results, preferably with numbers
Without all of this information, the conclusions of a study simply aren’t very convincing.
The other 5 of your 10 sources should be from the Internet, and I would like you to discuss:
1) the overall argument of the source
2) what specifics will be helpful for your paper (including actual specifics is a good idea)
3) why this is a reliable source (or why not)
Each annotation should be about 3 to 5 sentences long, and short quotes are allowed, especially if you are quoting specific results. Please put a little extra space between the annotations in order to make it easier for me to read. Otherwise, don’t worry too much about the formatting for this paper – it’s more about the content. Still, please make sure to include your thesis statement at the top of your paper because I won’t have your paper topics memorized.
For the outline, there are no strict requirements, but one must be included.
If you want to see some old sample papers, these will give you an idea about the kind of content I’m looking for, though I should note that this assignment has changed a bit over the years:
