Write a rich annotation for each source, according to best practices studied in your readings and as demonstrated in the “Sample Week 3 Assignment” document.
This paragraph of approach and purpose must answer all of the following questions in good depth and detail in this single rich paragraph:
What has been your approach to finding your sources?
What have you been looking for?
How successful have you been?
Do you plan to change strategies, and/or do you have additional specific sources or search strategies in mind?
Keep in mind that your purpose is analytical. You will very briefly summarize the source in a single sentence, then move into the source’s credibility, relevance, timeliness, and usefulness, followed by detailing specific connections to your argument and points and to other sources, if applicable. By the time you have finished this assignment, you should have a very clear idea of how your argument and the conversation between your voice and your sources will play out. This assignment will also provide your instructor with a solid preview of the quality of your argument as a whole.
Before submission, proofread and edit carefully for APA, spelling, punctuation, and grammar. While you are strongly encouraged to utilize electronic proofreading and APA tools, that is just your first line of offense. You should then always perform your own careful proofreading, silently and aloud, asking others to proofread if possible.
