Week 12: Annotated Bibliography

This week we will chat about your annotated bibliography project and how it will help you prepare for your final paper. The goal of the annotated bibliography is to use the sources you found in your research proposal and write an annotation for each source. Going through this exercise will help you get a jump start on your final research paper. I'll be there for your 4/27 class meeting. In the meantime, reach out to me if you have any questions or want to talk about college level research.  -- Maryanne
