Over the years, we have implemented many skills into the research process. Our most popular is definitely the annotated bibliography.
When creating an annotated bibliography, students:
take a better look at the content of their resources
take a better look at the quality of their resources
determine where they will use the resource during the research process
How can that not be a great thing?!
We have our rubric broken up into five sections: Summary, Connections, Source Quality and Authority, Citation Style/Formatting, and Writing . Students most often struggle with connections and source quality/authority. Therefore, they are likely to need the most guidance in those areas (although each should be given a certain amount of guidance).
We hope you like our annotated bibliography rubric!
