    In general, there’s too much “talks about” and “tells about” writing here, Marty. Such language only identifies the topic, not the point of view of the article or essay. If it’s truly objective, you can say it provides just factual data or research results. But even in such cases, the authors very often provide a summary or make conclusions. Be sure to tell readers what argument value the sources provide, not merely what they “talk about.”

    Also, this should be a collection of all 15 of your best sources. It will serve as the one location for everyone to see your Annotated Bibliography.

    Revise for improved grade if you wish.
