Annotated bibliography & Reflection paper

An Annotated Bibliography is a list of bibliographic citations that includes a descriptive and evaluative paragraph of each citation. Its overall purpose is to support your study of a particular subject by providing a collection of succinct article summaries that will negate the need for rereading of an article.

Part 1: Annotated Bibliography

Length: 5 sources with two paragraphs per source. In total, 10 paragraphs.

-“Drugs: Should Their Sale and Use Be Legalized?” 546-553

Specific requirements:

1. Every bibliographic information will have two paragraphs. The first paragraph is a summary of the source; the second paragraph is an evaluation of the source. Review the annotated bib powerpoint for help.

2. Provide 5 sources for your research topic. Two of your 5 sources may be online sources from Yahoo or Google searches. The rest of your sources must be from the Hcc library or databases.

Part 2: Reflection Essay

Length: 500-800 words.

Overall, the main purpose of the reflection is to explain what you learned from your research over the topic. You also need to explain which article was the most helpful or interesting and explain why. Your thesis should reflect the main purpose of the reflection.

You should also include the following in your essay:

-Explain what you thought about the issue before you researched it

-Explain if your perspective on the issue changed or stayed the same.

-Which source was most helpful and explain why.

-The section should be developed effectively, with an introduction, multiple body paragraphs, and a conclusion. Do not simply answer the questions by using a yes or no response.

The reflection should have a clear thesis in the introduction: state the purpose of the reflection, and why you plan to convey to your readers. The reflection should have multiple paragraphs
