The annotative bibliography was not hard, instead it was more tedious than anything. The most challenging part for me was finding sources in which I thought had the right information. Using the schoolís library database, it was not hard to find credible sources. It just seemed as most of the sources had a lot of the same information. I did not want to keep repeating myself. It was also difficult to decide what information to pull from which source. Another challenging part about the annotative bibliography was not procrastinating. It was pretty hard making myself sit down and actually find sources and write about them as well. Seeing how English just bores me all together, it was depressing times during the project. The easiest part about the annotative bibliography was citing the sources. This is usually the hardest part for me but then I learned the library provided a resource for it. When we visited the library I learned that the schools website would automatically cite a source for you, all you had to do was change some of the capitalizations and italicizations. After that all you have to do is copy and paste it, and there is your works cited page. The citations at the beginning of each paragraph was easy too, because it was the same thing on the work cited page. Once I turned in the annotative bibliography, it felt like a huge weight was lifted off of my shoulders. English has not been my favorite subject this year, therefore I have not enjoyed any of the projects. When the projects are done and complete my whole mood changes. I feel as though the annotative bibliography paper should get a better grade than the last project. At least I hope it gets a better grade than the last project. I feel like I put a lot more time into this project than I did the last one. Hopefully my grade reflects the effort. It is a relief to know that now this is done, we only have one more paper to write, then the semester will be over.

    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?

      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
