This is a REQUIRED assignment in preparation for your research essay. An annotated bibliography is the full APA Reference of a source followed by notes and commentary about a source. The word “annotate” means “critical or explanatory notes” and the word “bibliography” means “a list of sources”. My expectations are that the student will find the source and analyze it in regards to author, content and Annotations are meant to be critical in addition to being descriptive. You will provide no less than eight (8) sources for your research paper, including; 1 Journal article (online or physical text), 1 Book reference other than your textbook, 1 Government document (either electronic format or physical copy) and 1 report from a private organization (either electronic or physical copy). As part of your annotations, I expect to see at least one direct quote you plan to use for your Research Essay and what the source’s thesis statement is.
Students are to choose a topic within Indigenous Studies and discuss Indigenous
contributions in these areas. As examples;
