Annotated Bibliography Assignment Guidelines
Assignment objectives
The primary objective of this assignment is to give you further understanding and appreciation of the scholarship on your research topic.
A companion objective is to provide you an understanding of the aspects of your research topic that have not been covered by the existing scholarship. This knowledge will help you to refine your research objective.
An annotated bibliography has two parts: bibliography and annotation.
A bibliography is a list works that have been consulted, used, or quoted in the course of researching a topic, investigating a problem or an issue, and in the overall process of producing another academic work. These reference materials could be books, book chapters, journal articles, internet materials, primary sources, secondary sources, etc. Each entry or work on the list must include a full bibliographic information on the material. For a book, this will include: author, title, publisher, place of publication, and date of publication. For a journal article, the full bibliographic information must include: author, title, volume, number, year, and page numbers (first and last) for the article. The documentation style must follow the MLA format.
An annotation is a synopsis of each entry on the bibliography list. This synopsis will begin with a general summary of the entry that centers on the thesis or the major argument of the work. Following this is the contribution of that work to the scholarship on and our general understanding of that topic. Each annotation should be between three and five sentences long and placed below its entry.
Your annotated bibliography should have no less than FIFTEEN academic sources. Consult with a Reference Librarian if you are unsure of what an academic source is.
Formatting:
Your name and Course Number must appear on the top left corner of the first page.

This is a presentation about east asian pop culture, mainly focusing on their pop culture and asian values. This presentation should be an analysis of and reflection on the 3 readings I have attached. Number of slides are not limited but should be around 10 minutes long (not more than 10 min). This is super urgent because this assignment is due in couple hours so I do not need any good visual aesthetics to the presentation. Please focus on bringing out the key points from the readings and organizing them into a presentation. The presentation should also raise insightful questions.
It would really be a lot of help if this can be done ASAP. Thank you so much.
This is the grading rubric:
– Clear analysis of and reflection on the assigned readings (25 points)
– Provides coherent content and style 15 points
– Sufficient PowerPoint slides with organized textual and visual aid (15 points)
– Engaging and easy to hear and understand (15 points)
– Meets time requirement (about 10 minutes) (15 points)
– Raises insightful questions and leads class discussions (15 points)
