An annotation is comprised of the following:

  • 2-4 sentences summarizing the main ideas of the source
  • 1-2 sentences to assess and evaluate the source
  • 1-2 sentences to reflect on the source

You may use the information from your sources to formulate your thesis statement, but your thesis statement does not appear in the annotations of the sources.
