After classes today, a few of us got together to work on our class prep assignment, the first annotated bibliography. It took us a while but I think we all understood what we had to do as a result. Working with the group in a more laid back, non-classroom setting allowed me to really get a feel for how others in the cluster were doing. We discussed upcoming projects not only for Dr. Wharton’s class but for all of the classes we shared. I have to say these study group meetings are really helpful for anyone who needs help understanding assignments. And for me, I walked away feeling a little less stressed because I realized that many of the people in the cluster often felt as equally confused as I was. But coming together and hashing things out in a focused environment cleared a lot of things up for all of us. I definitely recommend grouping up and solving your problems with others rather than by yourself. This applies not only for us GA State cluster students but for anyone facing problems whether it be school, work, or just life in general. Good luck!
The link for the list of eligible sites we can visit for the project goes to a “404 Not Found”, what are the sites? Are they the same as the ones we have listed for our annotated bibliographies?
I’ve already found Zotero.org really useful for annotations and bibliography. It’s kind of insane that this program has been around and students don’t know about it. Here are a few of the articles I’ve already saved with it.
What makes a good annotation?
-One that asks a question (activate others’ thinking)
-answer that question
-bring more to the text
-explain something for someone else
All of these together make up a good, capital RA, Reading Annotation.
at least 10 annotations per RA
use correct grammar and punctiaution
Hashtags: class hashtag (#atlsprf16H), your initials (#ks), reading number (#RA1 #RA2 ect.), last name of author,
