Citations: Each work needs a complete bibliographic citation in correct MLA form. Before you write the annotations, make sure that you have alphabetized your four citations, as you would in a Works Cited.
3. Annotations—Each work has an individual annotation, and each annotation should be 100-150 words. You need a brief summary only. (You will write a more complex annotated bibliography in English 102 that includes sources for your research paper and evaluation.) Assume your reading audience has not read the work, which will guide your summary. Review Graff, Chapter 2, where he addresses the focused summary.
NOTE: Look for consistency of content, balance, parallelism, and format.
