*Critical Stance Research Writing *


The sample assignment and rubric on the ensuing pages represent the nature and focus of critical stance based research. Students are expected to take a critical stance on a specific aspect of a work of literature or text, and support their position by providing corroboration from established sources. Students must use critical thinking skills to evaluate the legitimacy of the sources they reference, and be consistent in their asserted stance.

Students Should:
  • Select a manageable part of the work to discuss
  • Take a clear stance on this issue by offering your own interpretation
  • Use outside sources and specific references to the work to support all claims
  • Make the topic your own while "standing on the shoulders of experts"



YOUR ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY

Overview: An annotated bibliography is a list of citations to books, articles, and websites with a small, descriptive paragraph. Annotated bibliographies generally have the following components: a summary, an evaluation of credibility, and a description of how the source fits in to your paper. *Basically, this annotated bibliography will assert the particular usefulness of each piece you chose to work into your project.


Directions: Write an annotated bibliography that includes ALL your sources for this project: scholarly sources;
Lord of the Flies, and every source you used for images and video.

*Each annotation should be about 100 words and be in MLA format. The topic of your annotated bibliography should relate to the topic you choose for this research project.

Your grade will be determined based on the following components:
Valdity: are the sources you have chosen valuable in the field of research?
Scholarliness: are your sources scholarly, credible, and/or peer reviewed?
Citation: are your sources documented properly and according to MLA?
Evaluation: did you evaluate the source in a clear and fair manner?
Assignment: did you fulfill the requirements of the assignment?
