This assignment focuses on processes of research and critical thought. The goal of this assignment is to introduce you to a variety of resources that are available to you when researching a topic and to help develop your critical-thinking abilities through choosing and responding to sources of information. You will choose a musical composition that you would like to know more about as a basis for this assignment. ASSIGNMENT Choose one composition from the repertoire list below and create an annotated bibliography (a bibliography that includes brief summaries of the main ideas/arguments in each text) based on the eight research sources listed below. Find a recording of the composition and include a citation of that recording in your bibliography (the recording does not need to include an annotation). EIGHT RESEARCH SOURCES Format: provide the citation; list the location of the source; provide an annotation. 1) Two scholarly books from the University of Toronto library system. Include the call number after the citation if using a print publication. 2) Two scholarly articles from the U of T library system. Include the call number after the citation if using a print publication. 3) One book from your local public library. Include the call number after the citation if using a print publication. 4) Two scholarly sources from the internet. Before your annotation, include a reason as to why you feel that the source is scholarly. 5) One encyclopedia entry on your topic (be aware that some sources called ‘dictionary’ act as an encyclopedia; The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians is an example of this) Annotations must include a summary of the contents found in the source and a description of the argument on the topic of your chosen composition. At least ONE of the above sources must be a print copy. YOU SHOULD END UP WITH 8 ANNOTATED CITATIONS IN TOTAL PLUS 1 CITATION OF A RECORDING OF YOUR CHOSEN COMPOSITION.
