Writing an Annotated Bibliography Step-by-Step Guide

While many students will avoid having to ever write annotated bibliographies, there are teachers who require them for research projects. Also, there are some courses, such as history, where annotated bibliographies are used extensively. 

One of my students said, "We wrote one in ninth grade, but it was just an MLA citation with a one or two sentence summary." That's what some might call an abbreviated attempt at an annotated bibliography, but it would earn a grade of zero in an AP or college class.

Let's listen to an Educreation lecture on annotated bibliographies

St. Patrick's Day Freebies

One of my fondest memories of St. Patrick's Day is of watching the Washington, D.C., parade with its numerous dancers and musicians of all ages. You can hear bagpipes from afar as spectators line the streets. It's a treat that everyone should see at least once in a lifetime!

If you don't have the opportunity to visit the nation's capitol on St. Patrick's Day, the next best thing is to have your own celebration. Students love to celebrate, so why not get the party started with some St. Patrick's Day handouts and fun activities!

Educator Helper is here to help celebrate St. Patrick's Day! Simply save and print the handouts below then get ready to learn all about the luck o' the Irish! For more St. Patrick's Day goodies, visit Educator Helper TpT Storefront.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
