                 Assignment #1: The Annotated Bibliographical Entry

Due: By midnight on the date indicated on the syllabus, uploaded as an attachment to Eagle Online.
No late assignments will be accepted.

Specifications: Assignment must be typed, double-spaced, with one-inch margins, using a 12 pt. serif
font such as Times New Roman. See the “Assignment Formatting Sheet” in the Course Appendices,
under “Formatting/Style Sheets,” for more detailed instructions. (See page two of this assignment
sheet for a physical example for this assignment.) Assignment can only be one of the following
three formats: .doc, .odt, or .rtf. Note: the Annotated Bibliography assignment is the only instance
in which the bibliographical data goes before the paragraph; in normal assignments, such data goes
after the paragraph and under a heading entitled “Works Cited.”

Instructions: Write an annotated bibliographical entry for the essay “The Scandalous Research Paper
and Exorcising Ghosts” using MLA format. All the information needed for the completion of the
assignment is in the essay itself, to be found in the Course Appendices, under “Course Handouts.”
The annotated paragraph should be between 150 and 250 words. The following is an example of an
annotated bibliographical entry:

Goldscheider, Frances Kobrin, Linda J. Waite, and Christina Witsberger. “Nonfamily Living and the
Erosion of Traditional Family Orientations Among Young Adults.” American Sociological Review 51
(1986): 541-54.

       The authors, researchers at the Rand Corporation and Brown University, use data from the
       National Longitudinal Surveys of Young Women and Young Men to test their hypothesis
       that nonfamily living by young adults alters their attitudes, values, plans, and expectations,
       moving them away from their belief in traditional sex roles. They find their hypothesis
       strongly supported in young females, while the effects were fewer in studies of young males.
       Increasing the time away from parents before marrying increased individualism, self-
       sufficiency, and changes in attitudes about families. In contrast, an earlier study by Williams
       cited below shows no significant gender differences in sex role attitudes as a result of
       nonfamily living.
