    This is currently incomplete, Tikeena. It should be the place you collect all 15 of your best sources, with links and notes. Your reader wants an Annotated Bibliography that collects all your strongest reading material into one location.

    Please import material from your earlier Source assignments to make this post complete.

    Now let me show you an example of an improved Source Annotation. I’ll demonstrate with the Daniel Kaplan article.

    Kaplan, Daniel. “NFL Labor Dispute.” Sporting News. Web. 9 Apr. 2012

    Background: Kaplan identifies the six primary conflicts keeping the NFL from coming to an agreement with the NFL Players Association (NFLPA). Among them are player fines, revenue sharing, and the demand by players that the owners open their books to prove they need a bigger share of the revenues than they now receive. The article offers insight into why the players feel bullied by the wealthy and secretive owners.

    How will I use it: Whether the players are right to feel bullied or not, it is clear that they do. This pervasive feeling that the owners have all the power and money and dole out less than they should to the players who draw all the attention to the league and make the owners rich helps explain why Adrian Peterson might be tempted to use the “slavery” analogy in frustration.

    In other words, Tikeena, just like essays, the notes need to be much more specific so readers will understand how the content of the source contributes to your argument.

    Grade Recorded.
    New grade available when the Bibliography is complete.
