There are two parts to this assignment: note-taking and citations & annotations.
Read & Take Notes
Read your two sources scholarly carefully and completely, taking notes on the main arguments, the major points of support, the ideas that you might be able to use in your essay, etc.
These reading notes are for your use when composing your annotations below; they should not be included in this assignment.
Citations & Annotations
In a single document, create an MLA citation for each of your sources.Then, using your reading notes, compose an abstract for your academic sources. These abstracts can be single-spaced, * and should include the following:
Summary (minimum 100 words each): Summaries should focus on major points, not smaller details and should consider an attempt to summarize the main argument and / or goal of the article. In some cases, sources will be more informational rather than analytical. Use strong, active verbs to describe what the source does: argues, provides, discusses, suggests, concludes, etc.
One specific key quotes or points from the article AND reason WHY (minimum 50 words): Your sentence might start: “One specific phrase/idea/quote/point that was particularly useful for the understanding of my topic is … (paraphrase or quote idea).
Reflect (minimum 100 words each): How does the article represent a particular viewpoint in the discourse of your argument or its context? In what ways does this article differ and in what ways is this article similar to your other articles? How has the article helped you to think about your issue and the impact on society? How has it changed what you thought? What challenges to or questions might you have about the article? What did this article teach you about the research process (i.e. what did the experience of this article teach you about research and/or critical reading)?
*Note that many academic articles come with abstracts already provided that usually summarize the article. However, it is expected that you not only provide your own abstract of each article in your own words and with your own sense of focus, but that you also write a reflection regarding the usefulness of that source to your research and understanding of that source. Copying an abstract is an act of plagiarism and will be too general and simple for this assignment–this needs to be your own original work and insight.
