• Assess the source and discuss how useful it is and how it compares with other sources in your paper.
• Reflect on how the source will be useful to you in your discussion. How does it help to shape your argument and how are you using it to shape your writing?
Each annotation should look like:
Author (year). Title of article. Title of Journal, Vol no(issue). Pg to pg.
In your summary, you will begin with a discussion of the research question the study is attempting to answer. You will summarize the research that was conducted and the specific findings that were uncovered. You will then provide a summary of what this means for the topic.
