Coverage Report Bibliography Peer Assessment

Assignment

Bring a hard copy of the annotated bibliography you're producing for the Current Event Coverage Report to class with you on Friday, June 21. It should have at least 5 entries with both a citation and an annotation for each, preferably including at least one from each category (fact-based, interpretive, and opinion-based journalism). Please double space your work.

Also bring your copy of either the MLA or APA handbook (or other documentation style handbook if you've chosen one) to class with you. In class we will trade drafts and assess each other's use of MLA or APA formatting and documentation as well as the quality of our annotations.

Turn It In

This is an in-class assignment, to be completed and turned in during class on Friday, June 21.

To receive credit you (1) must be present, (2) must have at least 5 complete entries, (3) must have your work printed out on paper. Failure to meet these three requirements will result in a fail for this assignment, and late work will not be accepted. Why, you ask? Because it is not fair to judge another's work if you aren't yourself prepared to be judge. Sharing your writing with others is scary—you must be vulnerable to other people if they are going to be vulnerable to you.
