For this assignment, you will need to provide a summary and evaluation for each of the (at least ten) sources you plan on using in your research paper. You will want to consider any possible bias, what supporting data are used, and where that data comes from in your evaluation. The summary and evaluation together should total roughly 150-250 words.
Here’s an example:

(Summary) In “A Born Killer?” Leah Johnson argues that legislation which bans particular breeds of dog is unfair. Using mostly anecdotal evidence from her personal experience (she owns several dogs), she contends that training is more important than breeding in predicting the behavior of a particular animal. She cites statistics from the U.S. Center for Disease Control, dog experts, and a government web site to support her claim that all breeds of dog bite; it is a natural behavior that should be inhibited through proper training, not selective breeding (50). Since all breeds bite, her argument continues, it is unfair to selectively punish certain breeds simply because they are larger or bite harder than others (50). Her solution to the biting problem is education. She believes that dogs should be educated (trained), and that dog owners should also be educated about how to properly train and manage their pets (52). (Evaluation) Her argument could have been more effective had she not relied so heavily on emotional appeal. As a dog owner, her obvious bias makes phrases like, “Kudo was persecuted” feel more emotionally charged than logically sound, and the pictures of puppies she includes lend to a feeling that the reader is being manipulated (51). Her argument was strongest when she pointed out that some of the dogs that would suffer under proposed bans have been trained as “service dogs” (51). These dogs, far from being a menace, have actually benefitted their communities. Her argument suffers, though, from an overuse of personal experience. When she says that she knows “from personal experience that proper training is effective,” she fails to account for the number of bites inflicted by dogs that have been through training, which leads me to question the rest of her assertions based on personal experience (53).
