*****Grammar and Mechanics: Ensure that you are writing according to the rules of grammar. Avoid contractions, implement subject verb agreement, implement proper capitalization and MLA format when referring to sources.
*****Summary: Your summary should be representative of the work. The reader of the summary should know who, what, when, where, and why the source is important enough to include as a viable resource.
*****Format and Thesis: Your format should follow MLA format and you will also print your thesis at the beginning of your submission.
*****Source: Don’t forget to include the full website name/address, and all components of the source’s information. Remember, when done correctly, all you need do is paste and copy unto your Works Cited page.
Summarize: Some annotations merely summarize the source. What are the main arguments? What is the point of this book or article? What topics are covered? If someone asked what this article/book is about, what would you say? The length of your annotations will determine how detailed your summary is.

Assess: After summarizing a source, it may be helpful to evaluate it. Is it a useful source? How does it compare with other sources in your bibliography? Is the information reliable? Is this source biased or objective? What is the goal of this source?
Reflect: Once you’ve summarized and assessed a source, you need to ask how it fits into your research. Was this source helpful to you? How does it help you shape your argument? How can you use this source in your research project? Has it changed how you think about your topic.
