create an annotated bibliography
whey want more of a breakdown of the resource that you used in this paper overview: Now they you to break down the resource and making sure its a good reliably source
Now that we’ve discussed the importance of using credible secondary sources for your project, let’s start annotating! Don’t worry—we’re going to
walk through the process one step at a time. This week, you’ll be guided through the writing-plan process with specific questions. In this section, we’ll first focus
on finding sources. Then we’ll help you summarize those sources, evaluate their credibility, and explain how they will help support your argument. If you found a
source that passed the C.R.A.A.P.O. test earlier in this module, feel free to use that as one of your sources. If you decided to alter your keywords and you’d like to
start your research from scratch, that’s totally fine too!
Prompt: In this activity, you’ll create an annotated bibliography by following the steps below and answering the questions as thoroughly as possible. The
questions will prompt you to engage in a conversation with your sources. You will need to follow the steps below three times (for your three different sources).
Before you begin, make sure you have:
Selected sources from the library databases
At least one of your three sources should present a counterargument, a position that an opponent of your argument might make.
Applied the C.R.A.A.P.O test to the sources to determine if they are credible and reliable (You can download a copy of The C.R.A.A.P.O. Test Worksheet in
MindEdge. Remember that credible sources should score 35 points or more on the test.)
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
1. Identify your sources, including author, title, and the database information or website.
2. Summarize your source. (Use the template below.)
It seems this source is arguing ____________________. This source is using the following evidence to support the argument:
A counterargument for one of the provided sources could be: _________________________________________________________.
3. Credibility and Relevance
Explain the rationale for the credibility of the source by providing supporting evidence. (Use the template below.)
o Personally, I believe the source is doing a (good job / bad job) of supporting its arguments because ____________________.
Explain the relevance of the source to your argument. (Use the template below.)
o I think this source will be very helpful in supporting my argument because ________

et’s revisit those sources and put them to the C.R.A.A.P.O.* test! This will help you determine which sources are credible and, consequently, which are the best choices for your essay. Using the provided worksheet, determine whether or not one of the sources you found passes the test.
