Purpose: The purpose of an annotated bibliography is to organize various sources that deal with an issue or topic and identify the information each source
covers and how that contributes to the overall goal of the project. This type of bibliography focuses on finding good sources and understanding them well
enough to explain how they will meet the project’s needs, as well as proper documentation of all sources.
Genre: Annotated bibliographies are most often published in academic circles and for particular purposes. For example, the Modern Language Association
(MLA) publishes one each year to aid scholars in the humanities with their research. Often, they serve as good starting points for research or as a “reading
list” of sorts for those interested in learning more about a particular topic. They cite the sources just as in a Works Cited page, but also provide a brief
summary of each source with direct quotations of key points and explain how it is relevant either to the field as a whole or to a specific research question in
Audience: The audience for an annotated bibliography can vary greatly. Those meant to be published in sourcebooks or other academic venues are often
geared towards professionals in specific fields. Those written by researchers themselves are usually meant for personal use for a specific project.
Voice: Since this particular assignment is for your own personal use and voice in a Works Cited entry is a moot point, formal voice will only need to be
applied in the summary and quotations for each source. The entries themselves must be accurate, concise, and properly edited, but need not adhere to the
conventions of formal voice.
Social Context: This context is usually derived either from the topic being researched or from the goal of the project itself. For our purposes, we are operating
in the context of helping ourselves and others understand a specific play in preparation for staging it.
REQUIREMENTS: annotated bibliography must contain no less than four entries; furthermore, these entries must include at least two articles from scholarly
journals from the specified databases. Internet sources are prohibited without specific, written permission from the instructor. Finally, each one of these
entries must incorporate at least two properly integrated and cited direct quotes from the source itself in the summary.
Are the sources relevant to the play you are researching and the context of this research project?
Are the sources you have collected academic in nature? Do they conform to the requirements for sources?
Does your summary of each source clearly state the relevance of the information? Does each summary contain at least two effectively integrated and
properly cited direct quotes from the source?
Are the MLA Works Cited entries properly written, formatted, and organized?
Are the summaries well written, with few errors in word choice, sentence structure, and mechanics?

NOT use the internet to find information. Please only use the articles I attach .
