Sick of assigning note cards as a way to lead students through the research process? Want an assignment that essentially teaches them the same research skills that assigning note cards does but is an assignment they might actually have to complete when they are in college? Then you want this! This handout will teach students how to research while compiling an annotated bibliography. In this way, they will learn so much more about research while completeing an authentic assignment! I have had much success with using this method with the juniors to which I teach our literary criticism research paper.
