bibliography: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/614/03/

 

 

 

Your Annotated Bibliography needs to include only a short paragraph for each source explaining what
was in the source (a brief summary) and how you may use this article or why it is good for your
group’s problem.  That is what separates an annotated bibliography from a standard reference page. 
This will be completed on a separate page and then attached to this worksheet when you turn it in.
