Annotated Bibliography and Informal

 Relevant Course Learning Outcomes: 1. Describe and analyze certain themes and concepts within the social construction of race, class, gender, and ethnicity that recur throughout the readings. 2. Analyze and interpret the texts studied by integrating knowledge from multiple disciplinary perspectives, methods, and insights including relevant literary, cultural, and historical knowledge and discussing the texts’ roles within American literature and ethnic studies. 3. Demonstrate that they can communicate in clear and persuasive prose analyses of the works studied, conduct interdisciplinary research, use appropriate citation systems, and follow the formal conventions of a specific style guide. Purpose: Since English 375 is meant to be a class that is writing intensive and interdisciplinary, the final substantial writing task in the class—a research project—is meant to be a project that is both interdisciplinary and intertextual. That is to say, the work you craft for the research project should be situated within the ongoing conversations of other experts in the field you’re choosing to examine in more depth. In English Studies, the annotated bibliography is a tool frequently used to test the writer’s own comprehension and analysis of secondary sources as well as to help the writer organize multiple sources. To that end, each student enrolled in English 375 is expected to produce an annotated bibliography that demonstrates that ze has found a minimum of three high-quality and relevant academic or scholarly secondary sources (or two scholarly and one high quality non-scholarly) well in advance of the due date for final draft of the research project. Remember that primary texts like Sula or The Shadow Hero do not count toward that total and should not be listed on the annotated bibliography.
