The 4 Annotation questions I have provided here are the standard set that could apply to just about any source you would ever encounter. However, the responses to those questions largely depend on the category in which the source is located in your project. For instance, a Support source is backing up your basic position, so it should be as persuasive as possible and answer a research question as efficiently as possible. By contrast, a Counterargument source should not be persuasive when it comes to your position, and it should not be the ultimate answer to any research question. Your Annotations of these sources may change where they fit in these categories, so have an open mind as you weigh the arguments in all these sources. One of the biggest acts of revision for an Annotated Bibliography is a reassignment of the use and categories of these sources in this evolving project.
IV. Find at least three sources to back up a position that you support and summarize the factual background they provide. These should be quantitative number and research facts. These are listed in a category labeled Support.
V. What are the major opposing positions? Cite at least 3+ sources that represent that side. Summarize the facts they provide in a category labeled Counterargument.
VI. What are sources that represent other positions rather than pro-con (generally, combinations and hybrids of the support and opposition positions)? What are previous attempts to solve this problem that have been argued for and/or tried? What can you learn from failures in the past to solve this ongoing problem? Cite and annotate 3 of those as well for your Alternatives.
