In fact, at the time it was felt by many

that America’s future as a country

depended on the success of the space

program (Smith 203).

In 1968, NASA director Smith noted that

“statistics and polls show that the people

of this country see the space program as

critical to the future of America” ( 203).

A Sample Annotated Entry

Darling, Nancy. “Peer Pressure is not Peer Influence.”

Principal Sept./Oct. 2002: 67-69. Print.

Darling, a professor of education at Bard College, argues that

adolescents are most often influenced not by what their friends

do or say, but how they think their friends will react to a situation.

Darling asserts that by providing positive information, involving all students, and grouping students differently, schools can provide opportunities to reinforce positive values. The idea of preconceived

notions of peer reaction is better addressed here than in other sources

that I found. This idea of adolescent positive peer influence is a timely theory and strongly supports the theme of my paper.


Remember: annotated bibliographies are simply an organized list of the sources that you have used, each of which is followed by a brief note: the annotation. The annotation itself is a brief description and evaluation of the book or article.
