Your task is to research an assigned contemporary genocide that occurred between the years 1901 and 2005. You will need to narrow your topic to a subtopic that allows for detailed research. By doing this research, you will become acquainted with the resources available through the UA library--both print and electronic. Each student will be required to produce two entries in an annotated bibliography on a topic that you have discussed with your group. Your citations will follow the MLA guidelines, a required component of your research in the English department of Ursuline Academy. The purpose of the annotated bibliography is to inform the reader as to the relevancy, accuracy, and usefulness of the resources you identify for your research.
Identify your topic.
Read broadly to familiarize yourself with the topic and gain a basic understanding. Begin with general resources.
Narrow the focus.
Research/take notes from your resources.
Format your bibliography. Use the MLA handbook, Noodletools or the Purdue OWL site.
