So far I have been able to isolate and refine all of my resources to fit exactly what I would like the paper to be about. Also I have already done eight of the fifteen sources that are required. The assignment if fairly simple, do some research, read the article, decide if it is relevant, then give the main points and how it is relevant. With these few things checked off the paper is pretty easy other than actually sitting down and taking the time to read the sources and try to process the information. I can tell that this paper is more of a note taking resource if you may be trying to gather articles for someone you could be working for. Also I could see this helping undergraduate students understand how to research more effectively and find articles that suit a narrow subject rather than a broad term. The only challenge I have faced during this assignment has been finding time to make sure I have every detail ironed out of the paper. The sources were fairly easy to pull together and the paper itself is fairly easy to write. The main issue I find is actually reading some of the articles, because some of them are worded in such a way that only a person in the field may understand the article. So I plan to make sure that I get the sources finished and typed up by tomorrow evening so I can proofread the entire paper before I hand it in. Also I would like to be able to make sure that all of the documents are relevant so I will most likely read over all of them a few times before class Monday just to make sure that none of the information is worthless. The subject I finally decided on was actually lung cancer and how does it develop, which I was able to find a lot more pertinent data on the subject over my last choice. All in all I think it has been a learning process, but I know it will help me in the future with research.

    What progress (if any) have you made on your annotated bib? How has this paper differed from others you've done? What challenges have you faced doing this assignment?

      I haven't made much progress with my annotated bibliography other than finding my sources. I am already learning more about my topic. This paper is different from other papers because we actually... more

      I havenít made very much progress with my annotated bibliography other than find 8 sources. In the last online discussion I chose the history of jazz music as my topic but I have changed my mind... more

      For my annotated bibliography I havenít gotten as far as I would have liked to have been at this point. So far I have found about seven sources that I can use. The other day I hit a snag in my... more

      I currently have not done much writing for the Annotated Bibliography, but I have found 10 sources which I would like to use. I found them using the online research database, and there is an article... more

      I have made some progress on my annotated bib. I have begun to search out sources and put their citations into MLA format. I have only written a few summaries, and am leaving that part for last... more

      This assignment is different from any I have had in my past english classes. To be perfectly honest I think I have only had to write an annotated bibliography one other time in the past fourteen... more

      Once again I have not started my paper yet but I do have a feeling that tonight when I go to the library I will crank a lot of the paper out of my way. I have never done a paper like this before but... more

      This past week I have managed to accomplish all but three sources for my annotated bibliography. I have done so by challenging myself to retrieve two sources, with a summary worded by myself, a day.... more

      I have found the fifteen sources I need for the annotated bibliography and am finished writing analysis for seven of them. So, I am approximately fifty percent done with my annotated bibliography. To ... more

      My progress with the annotated bibliography is not as far along as I would like it to be but I have still made progress. Iíve only been doing a few sources a day so my paper isnít coming all together ... more

      Honestly, I have not made any progress, other than picking my topic. The past two weeks have been so busy for me. I had planned to start finding my sources but then I realized I had other grades to... more

      As of last night, Thursday March 22, I have completed eleven out of fifteen sources for the annotated bibliography. It was not difficult as you have said, it is just time consuming. I wish I had... more

      I am actually finished with my annotated bib, and it's not even the weekend yet!! I spent all afternoon Wednesday finishing it and I'm pretty happy with myself for getting it out of the way and not... more

      Surprisingly enough, I have actually made some progress on my paper. I havenít technically started it yet, but I have found all my sources which I believe is a plus because now all I have to do is... more
    • 3/23 discussion - Amber Sanchez, Fri Mar 23 9:39am
      The progress I have made on my annotated bibliography so far has been that Iíve found most of my sources that will be featured in it. The way I did this was by using the internet resource database... more

      The amount of progress I have made on this paper is limited to say the least. I found my sources and I tried to figure out how to cite the sources before I realized the databases provided by the... more
