Critical Annotations

Critical Annotations: Your annotations for each of your 2 sources should include:

  • The bibliographic line: This line should be a citation for the work that is consistent with MLA style.
  • The context section: This section of your annotation should identify the author, their credentials (if relevant), the nature of the publication (its audience, its genre, etc.).
  • The description section: This line should describe the genre of the piece. Did it contain a study of some sort? Was it an interview? (Sometimes this section can be included in the context section.)
  • The content section:  This portion should identify both the overall summary of the source and the way that author made their argument through specific rhetorical moves. It should include important arguments made by the author with attention to the significant, controversial, or memorable statements/quotes he or she made.
  • The assessment section: This portion includes your critical evaluation of the source. It should comment on the quality of the source in terms of its validity, reliability, balance, comprehensiveness, relevance, and balance, and it should point out any problematic issues regarding your source. Finally, it should include your own assessment of the source’s overall value to your project.

 

Each annotation should be around 250-300 words. Ideally, your annotations should be between 250-275 words but no more than 300 words. Annotations comprised of less than 200 words will be considered incomplete and will receive partial credit only.  Annotations should be written in your own words with no direct quotations from the source
