‘How-To’: Write an Annotation
An annotation is a short statement in which you summarize and assess the validity of a source, describe its methodology, and explain why the source is relevant to your research.
- 1. Cite the source in MLA
- 2. Write 2-3 sentences that give a broad overview of the argument, aims, and/or scope of the source: what are the main claims/goals, what are the key terms, what’s the context; whose the audience, etc.?
- 3. Write 2-3 sentences explain the main mode of inquiry and/or evidence the source uses to achieve her main claim/goal. Literary scholars main mode of inquiry is close reading, but what methods do performers or authors of databases use to achieve their goals?
- 4. Write 1-2 sentences that assess the validity of the source. Did the author accomplish the goal he set out for himself? You’ve already stated the main claim/goal and the evidence/methods the author uses to achieve that goal, so now assess the source’s success.
