Create an annotated bibliography. Each entry should consist of three sections: an MLA-format citation, a summary/paraphrase of the source's contents, and an evaluation of the source.
Annotations of short sources must summarize the sources' entire contents, but annotations of long sources (i.e., books) should focus on the relevant section.
Annotations should (but don't absolutely have to) include paraphrases or quotations that you plan to use in your paper.
Evaluations must discuss the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources.
Each annotation must be at least 150 words long, not including the citation.
Your annotated bibliography must include a minimum of five good-quality, preferably scholarly sources. It can also include popular sources if they're very high quality, credible, and relevant.
