_ Choose one of the two possible topics in the Final Paper Prompt and research it. This can mean searching for a range of phrae related to the topic in a standard search engine and looking in the library database.
Topics: 1. Disinformation about Covid vaccines (find and critically analyze examples of disinformation, along with credible articles on the subject)
2. Political disinformation campaigns (again, find and critically analyze examples of the disinformation itself, along with credible articles on the subject). You will want to narrow this one down to a specific political topic.
_Find five articles on the topic and create an Annotated Bibliography listing them alphabetically in proper MLA style Works Cited format each followed by a paragraph evaluating the article.
_There is no requirement that the sources be academic or peer reviewed. However, you are absolutely required to evaluate your sources using your critical thinking skills (and the CRAAP test). That is the point of this assignment.
* Remember, your final paper is not a report, but a critical analysis of the articles you use. For this reason, some of your articles may not be credible at all; they may be examples of the type of disinformation you’re researching.
You will be using these sources in your Final Paper, taking into account feedback that you get on this assignment. You might be asked to find other sources if I deem them off-topic.
Format
Please follow the format outlined on OWL Purdue for an Annotated Bibliography:
https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/general_writing/common_writing_assignments/annotated_bibliographies/annotated_bibliography_samples.html
You’ll see that it is composed of Works Cited style entries, each followed by a paragraph of summary & then a paragraph evaluating the article according to how it will fit into your own argument and according to criteria of critical thinking.
