Newspaper Articles/ Youtube Videos

General Background

During the semester, you will construct an annotated bibliography of resources you consult while working on your research project. You can earn a total of 105 points for this assessment; 15 points for each of the seven sections.

Although you will not be able to earn points for submitting the sections after the deadlines, unless you complete all of the requirements for the annotated bibliography, you will fail your final project.

For an annotated bibliography, you write a proper citation for your source. Then, after it, you will provide a two to three sentence summary of the source. “Reviews, Interviews, Articles, and More” is an annotated bibliography I created for Nick Sousanis’ Unflattening (2015).

YouTube Videos

This week’s session will focus on YouTube videos. For this lesson, you are not locating films. Rather, you are locating documentaries or instructional materials concerning your topic. For example, Cinematography Lesson One: Angles (2012) which we watched as part of this module is an example of what you are to find.

Example from My Research

I have an interest in Israeli films as well as the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. In fact, when I taught Lilith (2010) this semester, I wanted to include a section on two other films: Strangers (2003) and Offside (2006). Unfortunately, I cannot locate closed caption versions of these films. Because the films are not ADA compliant, I am not teaching them this semester. However, I could still cite them if my research paper was on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict is portrayed in film.

While analyzing these films, I need to know something about Zionism and the creation of Israel. To learn more, I did a search in YouTube and found What is Zionism? (2015) Other videos on YouTube are also appropriate for this topic. Although What is Zionism? is ADA compliant, the videos I consult in my research need not be.

ou should locate a minimum of five quality YouTube videos. Post your citations in the Bibliography: YouTube Videos discussion form. I have created a template–which can be found int he forum–which you can cut an past into your posting.

In the course documents section of BlackBoard, you can find information on research strategies and proper MLA document.
