ENGL110, Annotated Bibliography, easy
Im trying to learn for my Writing class and Im stuck. Can you help?
You will submit an annotated bibliography for 2 of your sources. Each source will have the correct citation entry for the citation style you are using (APA), as well as an annotation, which is made of a paragraph or two telling the reader about the source. One (1) of the sources should be a peer-reviewed piece.
Here are the steps you will take to build your annotated bibliography:
- First, determine what kind of source you are using. Is it a book? Journal article? Blog?
- Copy that model and paste it into your bibliography.
- Then put your source in the correct citation format, following the model you just copied and pasted.
- Finally, write a brief annotation of that source. The annotation should describe the main ideas covered in the source as well as an evaluation by you for the source’s usefulness.
- Follow the student example included below. You will see the model, the citation, and then the annotation for the source.
- Sample Annotation. Each of your entries should follow the format below.

Calkins, Lucy. Raising Lifelong Learners: A Parent’s Guide. Reading: Addison-Wesley
Longman. 1997. Print.
Lucy Calkins is a noted teacher and researcher in reading and writing. Her book is a guide for parents, helping them to work with their children’s schools to create a positive learning environment and a lifelong love of learning in their children. Topics covered include fostering learning and curiosity in mathematics, science, social studies, reading, and writing. Calkins work also offers advice on school curriculum and testing. By providing specific examples of parental involvement, this book will help support my assertion that parents need to play a strong role in their children’s education.
