English 3 Annotated Bibliography Project

This guide is designed to help you explore topics and gather research sources for your annotated bibliography project. Your English teacher would like you to try using a research database as a way of sharpening your research skills and locating sources from a wide variety of publications.

The U.S. History in Context database is a great option for this project because it not only includes reference, news, and scholarly journal articles, but for many popular research topics the database also pre-organizes sets of research resources. This means the database has already done some of the work for you by collecting related resources together in a single location.

This ELA 3 Annotated Bibliography Project page contains information about accessing OE online resources off-campus and demonstrations of using U.S. History in Context database tools.

If you need additional help the library hours are Mon-Friday, 7.30-3.30 and advisory (create an e-hallpass for your advisory teacher to approve) on Mon, Thurs, and Fridays. My email is smcnerneyoe@olatheschools.org and your English teachers are: Ms. Bell kabell@olatheschools.org, Mr. Franzen sfranzenoe@olatheschools.org, Mr. McCalister llmccalister@olatheschools.org
