Annotated Bibliography for Persuasive Speech
Directions: Write an annotated bibliography for three to sources in preparation for your Week 7 Persuasive Speech. Document the sources using APA standards. Alphabetize by author last name, double space, and use the hanging indentation style. The topic for my persuasive speech is “Redefining feminism”.
Sources should be in alphabetical order by author last name. Cite the book, article, or document using appropriate APA style.
Write an annotation that summarizes the central theme and scope of the book or article, gives information about the author, and tells how you might use this information in your speech.
Paragraph 1: First, summarize the source. Be sure to put the writing into your own words and avoid plagiarism. Second, evaluate the authority or background of the author. What makes them an authority or expert on this subject? You may have to search beyond the article to find out more about your author.
Paragraph 2: Explain specifically how this work might be used in your research paper. For example, it would be good for background, good for discussion of opposite views (state what they are), good for valuable facts and statistics, a good summary to help with your conclusion, good quotations from experts in the field, and so forth.
