Make sure to read the entire assignment below before you begin the work
necessary for Milestone 2.
For Milestone 2 provide your final outline for the paper. Additionally, provide an
annotated bibliography containing at least 8 scholarly sources for your paper, in
APA format. An annotated bibliography provides the citation for each source, as
well as approximately one paragraph for each source assessing its credibility and
how it is useful in your research. The How to Prepare an Annotated
can help you as you develop your annotated bibliography.
For the Course Project, you will write about a historical event between 1865 and
the present day from the perspective of a historical figure who participated in the
event. Here are some examples: You may NOT use one of these topics.

The attack on Pearl Harbor from the perspective of Franklin D. Roosevelt
The ratification of the 19th Amendment from the perspective of Alice Paul
The Cuban Missile Crisis from the perspective of John F. Kennedy
You will need to research not only the event, but also the historical figure, and
write the paper “in character.” Your final paper must be 5–7 pages of text, plus a
title page and APA-formatted reference page. You must include properly cited
graphics, such as pictures, maps, and graphs if you like. You must use and cite at
least 5 scholarly sources; Wikipedia, encyclopedias, and websites that are
intended for a general audience are not scholarly sources. You may supplement
(not replace) the 5 scholarly sources with news articles. Be sure to check out the
New York Times and other newspaper databases included in the FSCJ library

WHAT IS AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY?
An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief (usually about 150 words) descriptive and evaluative paragraph, the annotation. The purpose of the annotation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.
ANNOTATIONS VS. ABSTRACTS
Abstracts are the purely descriptive summaries often found at the beginning of scholarly journal articles or in periodical indexes. Annotations are descriptive and critical; they may describe the author’s point of view, authority, or clarity and appropriateness of expression.
Creating an annotated bibliography calls for the application of a variety of intellectual skills: concise exposition, succinct analysis, and informed library research.
First, locate and record citations to books, periodicals, and documents that may contain useful information and ideas on your topic. Briefly examine and review the actual items. Then choose those works that provide a variety of perspectives on your topic.
Cite the book, article, or document using the appropriate style.
Write a concise annotation that summarizes the central theme and scope of the book or article. Include one or more sentences that (a) evaluate the authority or background of the author, (b) comment on the intended audience, (c) compare or contrast this work with another you have cited, or (d) explain how this work illuminates your bibliography topic.
CRITICALLY APPRAISING THE BOOK, ARTICLE, OR DOCUMENT
For guidance in critically appraising and analyzing the sources for your bibliography, see How to Critically Analyze Information Sources. For information on the author’s background and views, ask at the reference desk for help finding appropriate biographical reference materials and book review sources.
CHOOSING THE CORRECT FORMAT FOR THE CITATIONS
Check with your instructor to find out which style is preferred for your class. Online
