By the due date assigned, post your annotated bibliography entry for a scholarly article to the discussion area. By the end of the week, respond to your classmates’ posts with your feedback, questions, and suggestions.
For this assignment, find a scholarly article on your Week 4 short story (Alice Walker Everyday Use) in the SUO Library. Find a scholarly source examining the short story that was the focus of your Week 4 rough draft (Alice Walker Everyday use). Do not use popular publications, such as summaries from Masterplots or The Introduction to Literary Context, or other media that are not research oriented.
Post an annotation of your source to the discussion board. Your annotation should include:
A complete APA citation of your scholarly article
A paragraph of summary of the key points presented in your source
A paragraph explaining the source’s quality and how it is relevant to your analytical essay
Here is an example of an annotated APA entry (not an actual source):
Smith, A. (2016). Journey into the unknown. American Literature, 22(3), 4-5.
This article compares Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “Young Goodman Brown” and Eudora Welty’s “A Worn Path,” discussing the protagonists’ journeys as a focal point. The article examines these two main characters and their different paths in life. Those paths led Young Goodman Brown and Phoenix Jackson into the forest on very different quests, but both were determined to take these journeys that were emotional, meaningful, and dangerous.
Smith’s article offered a fascinating perspective on the motives and outcomes of these two disparate characters and their life paths that led them into the unknown. I gained a better understanding of my character, Phoenix Jackson, by reading this article and contrasting her with Young Goodman Brown. There are several quotations and ideas I will be able to incorporate into my final draft.
Examples of Journals with Scholarly Articles:
Studies in Short Fiction
Modern Fiction Studies
Language and Literature
Modern Language Notes
Your replies to classmates should be at least a paragraph in length and made with an eye to expand, clarify, defend, and/or refine their thoughts. Consider asking questions to further meaningful conversation. Participation must be completed by the end of the week to earn credit.
