Working Thesis: Then include your working thesis statement that you're going to use in your research paper (and your annotated bibliography).
Bibliography: List MLA citations for your 5 sources, arrange them in alphabetical order.
Annotations: Under each citation, write a paragraph about each source that includes:
Several sentences summarizing what the source said (yes, you should actually read the source to do this). (Hint: Ask yourself what the main point of this source was and what conclusions the author came to)
Finally a sentence or two about how you are going to use this source to support your thesis when you write your research paper. (Hint: Ask yourself how this work is useful or relevant to your topic? What did you take away from the source that you could use in your argument?)
