ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY GRADING RUBRIC
Annotated Bibliography Requirements

1. Label the source as:
  • Pierce County Library eBook
  • eLibrary
  • Powerful Quote
  • Self Selected Source 1
  • Self Selected Source 2
            (see the example on the 9th Grade Research Wiki sample documents page)

2. List the source in proper MLA format.

     Many of the required sources you will be using have the MLA citation prepared for you to copy/paste to your document.
     For other sources there are examples of the formats on the Pageflake and on the 9th Grade Research Wiki sample documents page.

3. Now write the annotated bibliography including the following three sections:

    A. Write a summary of the information you got from the source. The summary should be:

  • an overview of the whole source and its contents
  • a paragraph of 3-5 sentences
  • paraphrased: use your own words to summarize the source (no quotes or re-worded text from the source)

    B. Answer the question:

  •  How did this source clarify the issue for you as a researcher?
            (2-3 sentences)

    C. Answer the question:

  • What makes this source credible?
             (2-3 sentences)

    D. Answer the questions:

  • Is this a primary or secondary source? (Use the Identifying Primary Sources Glog to help you decide if you run into one that you are unsure of)
  • How do you know?
             (1-2 sentences)

3. Also include the C.R.A.P. test for any websites or Internet sources that you select from a search. This is not required for the sources supplied for you on the Pageflake. Write 1 to 2 sentences for each letter of C. R. A. P.(see the annotated bibliography example on the 9th Grade Research Wiki sample documents page). You must select at least one website independently and apply the C. R. A. P. test.
