For this project, you will do some scholarly research on Watchmen. The finished project will be an annotated bibliography with 4 sources. One of these sources is the article I provided to you, “The Human Stain,” to get you started.
Use MLA citation
Distinguish between types of sources
Apply research to course text
The first step is finding 3 sources that would be helpful in preparing your Watchmen final presentation, so be sure to review the possible topics. This should help you focus on what types of articles that will be most useful. You should not simply use the first sources you find.
Keep in mind that these academic sources don’t necessarily need to be directly about the particular work you are researching. You may use history, psychology, sociology, economics, or any approach that you can clearly apply to your chosen work. After deciding upon 3 sources, you will create an annotated bibliography.
The Assignment: For each article, you will turn in a 1page, singlespaced response that includes the following. Label each section.
Citation (Use MLA format. For help go to OWL(http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/section/2/11/) (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
Summary (Be sure to present the main points, and demonstrate by using examples and quotations)
Evaluation (Explain the strengths and weaknesses of the content, type, and author of your source)
Synthesis (Briefly explain how you would use the source in a research paper about the literary work)
