Hi Buhle, this is a great start to your anno bib. The references themselves, however, are incomplete and not in APA/MLA/CMS format. Please look at some examples of anno bibs online and make sure you are following the proper format in order to get credit for this assignment. Additionally, the annotations should be in paragraph format and don’t be afraid to quote things you may want to use in your research or compare an contrast various articles with each other.

Buhle, I was going to say the same as marlen, but read his before I started typing. Look back at your blog #9 and take those tips I gave you about APA and redo this. If you take the time to write the information from the sources into paragraph form like your writing it in your paper you can just copy and paste it later on! Good luck with the changes and see you in class 🙂
