I thought that the annotated bibliography was significantly easier than I had expected. What I had the most trouble with was searching all through the databases to find good sources. So many articles that are on there are not really through ECUís database so I had to go through so many other websites to finally find the right one. Then I would get nervous citing them because I had gone through so many different websites to actually find the article, and I wasnít sure which one to cite. I was a little nervous about citing everything correctly, and I still am nervous to see if I did that all correctly, since it is such a big part of this grade. I also got tripped up sometimes on the part about telling what type of audience the article was meant for. My topic wasnít really scientific, so it was hard to separate whether you would need to be a professional to understand or not. Also, because I am fairly familiar with the topic Iím not sure if it was easy to understand just for me, or if it would really be easy for a general audience. Hopefully I had a good judgment on that though.
What I found to be the easiest about the annotated bibliography was actually talking about the content of the articles. Luckily, I found summing up the articles and differentiating them from one another fairly simple. The only thing that tripped me up sometimes was the fact that some of the articles had very similar positions and content. Overall though, I felt pretty good about it.
I felt good about the annotated bibliography overall once I had finished. I still get nervous though because there have been too many times in my life where I thought I did well on something and actually did really badly. I am afraid that citations might not be exactly correct, or that the part about what audience the articles were aimed towards are not specific enough. I really hope that I did well though, and now I will just have to take whatever grade I earned.

    What did you find most challenging about the annotated bibliography? What did you find easiest about doing the annotated bib? Now that you have submitted it, how do you feel about your Ann. Bib?

      The hardest part of the annotated bibliography was finding the time to do it. It wasn't the longest paper I've ever written, but it is by far the most time consuming. Reading all the scholarly... more

      I think I did a decent job overall on the annotated bibliography. I thought the assignment was pretty basic, but I hope I never have to do one of them again. Like you said in class, it is a simple... more
