By now you have each spent a good deal of time thinking about your annotated bibliography topic, and doing preliminary research.
The annotated bibliography should contain ten sources (texts, books, scientific journal articles, articles, websites, etc.). Your annotated bibliography should include at least one book, at least one academic journal article, and at least one website. Please remember that annotated means that in addition to providing the bibliographic information, you also provide a paragraph or two about the source.
In addition, you should critically analyze the information sources for evidence based scientific information. This link to the Cornell University Library will help you evaluate your sources.
After you have done the assigned reading that corresponds to the particular topic you have chosen, reflect on the material you read in terms of what you found most interesting, provocative, or controversial. (I think this assignment will feel like less of a burden if you work on something you find interesting.)
