Touchstone 2.2: Create an Annotated Bibliography
ASSIGNMENT: Using your research question, working thesis, and outline from Touchstone 1.2, create an annotated bibliography that provides a synopsis of your sources and an explanation of how you will use them.
As this assignment builds on Touchstone 1.2: Create a Project Proposal, that Touchstone, as well as Touchstone 2.1: Evaluate a Source, must be graded before you can submit your annotated bibliography.

A. Assignment Guidelines
DIRECTIONS: In Touchstone 2.1, you evaluated a source for its usefulness in your project. Here in Touchstone 2.2, we will consider additional sources for your research. Curate a list of at least 7 sources for the annotated bibliography. You may use the source you chose for Touchstone 2.1, if the source was a useful one.

Discuss how your annotated bibliography meets these criteria. (2-3 sentences)
