ENGL 301: Brit Lit to 1800 (Martin Birky, F 2015): Annotations

What's in an annotation?

An annotation should be at least one paragraph.

An annotation should include a summary of the source.

An annotation should include your own analysis or comments about the source:

  • Who is the intended audience?

  • What are the author's credentials?

  • Is the information supported by research, objective reasoning, other experts, etc., or is it more opinion-based?

  • How does this source broaden or help your understanding of the topic?
