  2. Identify types, sources, and formats of information.
  3. Develop and execute searches to access various formats of information
  4. Critically evaluate types, sources, and formats of information

the assassination of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani by the US government.

To complete this assignment:

  • To meet the objectives of this module, you should complete the following activities and assessments:

 

The Assignment

Find 6 sources relevant to your final essay global event.  The sources should focus on HOW WE KNOW about your event.

The sources must come from the specific formats of the information listed below: scholarly article, web site, newspaper, etc. The annotated bibliography will be posted on Canvas.

 

RULE: Sources must be listed in a bibliography following the rules of MLA style.

Each citation must have an annotation. An annotation is a summary and evaluation

of a source about 2-3 sentences long.

 

To do an annotation, you must be familiar with the form and content of the source.

If the source is an article, read (or at least skim) it. If it’s a book, read the table of

contents, some of the introduction, and skim a few relevant chapters. If it’s a

website, read the About section, the home page, and explore a few links.

The idea is to know enough to determine if it fits your thesis argument and is a

good source.

 

NOTE: If you change your topic, you do not need to resubmit the bibliography. If

you change sources during your research, that’s OK, too. The final bibliography

will be part of your final essay.

 

Sources

Find 6 sources, one from each of the formats listed below. Use MLA for your citations,

followed by the annotation.

Be sure to include the database/catalog/website in which it was found (i.e., Proquest,

PsycINFO, Academic OneFile, etc.).

Sources 1-3 must be from an FIU Library database or FIU Library catalog:

 

  1. One book published in the last 10 years
  2. Journalarticle in a scholarly journal
  3. One article in a popular or trade magazine

Sources 4-6 can be from an FIU Library database, the FIU Library Catalog, or the

Web:

  1. One article from a newspaper published in the country of your topic(must be in English)
  2. A good website. Jokes4Us.com is not a good website. Wikipedia is questionable.

The Census Bureau is a good site.

  1. One good source of your choice.

 

Your sources will be graded using the following criteria:

Timeliness.

When was it published? Has the world changed so much that the information there is outdated or irrelevant?

Accuracy.

How well-supported is the source with facts? Are those facts still

correct?

Authority.

Who or what provided the information? The Onion is an authority on

humor, but not on facts.

Relevance.

Does the source relate to your topic? If you’re writing about the Las

Vegas shooting or Charlottesville marches, visitor guides for those cities are

irrelevant.

Quality of annotation.

Provide complete information.

The first 4 criteria are explained in the FIU tutorials (see the section on Evaluating

Information). The relevance criteria are determined by how pertinent your source.
