Annotated Bibliography Rubic Posted

The rubric for the annotated bibliography writing assignment is now posted on the Schedule, Readings, and Rubrics page. I distributed a hardcopy of this document in class today, yet should you need to retrieve another copy you can do so by clicking on the link on the aforementioned page.

Below is a sample annotation in APA style:
Lothan, K. (2005) Seizing the time: Australian aborigines and the influence of the Black Panther party, 1969-1972. Journal of Black Studies, 35,179-200. Retrieved from http://www.jstor.org/stable/40027217.
This article is about the Australian aborigines that were influenced by the Black Panther Party to start a party of their own to fight against inequality in Australia. The article shows that the Black Panther did not just influence the people in America but other people around the world. The Australian Black Panther Party wanted similar needs and wants as the Black Panther Party in America. They both wanted “land, bread, housing, education, clothing, justice, and peace and immediate end to police brutality” (Lothian, p. 187). The Australian Black Panther Party wanted to use self-defense as their ideology but that was not very successful because carrying guns was illegal. So instead of using guns when they followed the police, they used pencils and a note book. Members were shown movies about the Black Panther Party because they wanted every member to know what was expected of them. The Australian Black Panther Party started survival programs just like the American Black Panther Party. Some of the survival programs they started were Legal services, feed the people, free breakfast for children and Medical Services. This source supports my thesis because it shows that other people around the world saw the good things that the Black Panther Party was doing for the community and they wanted to do the same for their community.
