Annotated Bib Peer Review Courtney Haas

Did I do the works cited part correctly?
It looks to me like you cited your sources properly, although something I struggled with was the date of when you saw the article if that needs to be included or not. When I looked it up it said no so I removed mine. But yours did look like mine before I did that. Overall I would say your safe on the citing of your sources. Rebecca Tuttle

Will a Gluten-Free Diet Improve Your Health

Storrs, Carina. "Will a Gluten-Free Diet Improve Your Health." Health Media Ventures, Inc., April 5th, 2011. Web. February 7th, 2014.

The article talked about Celiac disease and how it effects the body's ability to digest gluten. Gluten is found in wheat, rye, and barley along with any food products made with these grains. Health problems occur when people with Celiac disease eat and product that has gluten. Dr. Daniel Leffler (assistant at Harvard Medical School) talked about how they are still learning about gluten intolerance and suggest that we all have a little gluten intolerance. Health problems occur from lack of vitamins and nutrients. It was suggested that gluten intolerance is a "spectrum of conditions" ranging from Celiac disease to "gluten-related gastrointestinal problems." Dr. Leffler suggested cutting out gluten to see if you are sensitive to it. They also stated that gluten free diets are not necessarily healthier than any other diet.

This source was helpful for me. It gave some basic information on why people have to follow a gluten free diet. It also touched base on the gluten free "fad diet." I think it's a pretty good resource. The factual information they have came directly from a Harvard University assistant in the medical school along with a doctor that is part of the Celiac research department at the University of Maryland. This source gave a basic background into the Celiac disease and other diseases that cause people to follow a gluten free diet.

This source helped me to get started. It gave me a couple more reasons as to why people follow a gluten free diet which means I have more things to research. It's a few years old, but I still think it'll help with my research.

Gluten-free diet: What's allowed, what's not

Mayo Clinic Staff. "Gluten-free diet: What's allowed, what's not." Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research, December 20th, 2011. Web. February 10th, 2014.

The article starts off saying what a gluten free diet entails. It then explains why people follow a gluten free diet, which is for celiac disease. It talked about foods that you can eat and listed grains that can be eaten with a gluten free diet. It then listed foods and drinks containing certain grains and certain other wheat products. They then gave a list of foods to avoid unless labeled "gluten free." They warn against cross-contamination that can occur in factories. They then list the risks of following gluten free diet which includes vitamin deficiencies and also talks about what happens if you do eat something with gluten.

It's very reliable since it was written by Mayo Clinic staff. It's a couple years old though. It's written very simply so anybody can read it.

It's very basic information and I'm not entirely sure if I'll end up using it. If I do it'll be for the deficiencies and risks of eating gluten when you really shouldn't.

  • Are the summaries detailed enough that you understand what the source is all about? Are there details that the writer included that are unnecessary to the summary? What questions are you left with after reading the summaries?
  • Did the reviewer evaluate the sources using the CRAAP test? Do you see criteria based judgements about each letter (currency, relevance,authority, accuracy, purpose)? What is missing?
  • Are the reflection sections complete enough that you understand how the writer responded to the sources? Could they include more information?
  • Based on these two entries, in what direction do you think the writer's research is going?
  • What questions are you left with after reading these entries?
  • What are these annotations' weaknesses?
  • What are these annotations' strengths?

Peer Review by Rebecca Tuttle
I enjoyed reading your subject and the information you took from your sources. Seems like gluten free is the new thing and a lot of people like me still don't exactly know what the big deal is.
1. Your summaries are detailed enough that I do understand your topic is gluten and what it is. I did not think you wrote anything that was unnecessary as you stayed on topic. I have no questions after reading the summaries.
2. It looks to me like you did take into the account of CRAAP as you included the date of the article and the publisher. Nothing seems to be missing.
3. I see that you responded to the sources well as you included what you took from the articles and what could possible help you writing the paper.
4. I am left with no questions.
5. Annotation Weaknesses - possibly try to find an article that varies from the other one? Or talks about something else the other doesn't offer.
6. Strengths- you stay on topic and both seem to come from credible sources.
