Annotated Bibliography Peer Review Jessica Dulz

◦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?

Questions:
Should my summaries be longer/ more in depth for each source?
I think if your going to use the first source on here that is outdated maybe go more in depth. Try to convince me the reader why you are using it, and what you got out of it. My suggestion would be to include some of the statistics the article gave you to inform the reader. For your second source I like what you had summarized and how it was the opposite from your first. - Rebecca Tuttle


Caffery, Lee. "How Much Protein Do Athletes Need." Vanderbilt.edu. N.p.. Web. 10 Feb 2014. <http://www.vanderbilt.edu/AnS/psychology/health_psychology/Protein.htm>.

This source provides information about a study conducted, which found that there were certain levels at which the amount of protein consumed no longer benefits our health and is simply stored as fat. This site gave many statistics and numbers that influence the way protein effects our bodies organs in both a positive and negative way. The author of this source also looks more closely into the relationship between different types of athletes and how protein can be used by each ( in beneficial ways) and what happens when an athlete consumes too much protein in their diet.

This source appears to be from the 1900's, which is fairly old when compared to the recent improvements that modern technology and science has made that could be used in more research on this subject. The author of this website is Lee Knight Caffery and although listed on this site is very hard to find further background information regarding her credentials. This makes it hard to validate the information that is provided. The original source that this article is posed on is Vanderbilt University. It was posted on here for an educational purpose to students that come across this site and to educate them on what may have been their previous beliefs of how to maintain a sufficient amount of protein in their diets.

This source provided me with a great starting point on information that i can research more to find a more current articles and studies done on this topic. I found the science behind all of this information interesting and I think that it will make a big difference on how i approach the rest of this paper.

United States. Center for Disease Control. Protein. Atlanta: , 2012. Print. <http://www.cdc.gov/nutrition/everyone/basics/protein.html>.

Protein is found in meats, poultry, fish, eggs, legumes, tofu, nuts and seeds, milk and milk products, and grains. There are three different types of proteins; complete, incomplete, and complementary. This source provides examples and a basic understanding of what protein is and how each type of protein can be consumed and absorbed in our everyday diet.

This source is operated by the center for disease control and prevention (CDC). This is a reliable source because of the well established background of this organization. The CDC is operated by the government. This article was last updated in October of 2012, and since that was fairly recently i think that the information provided is reliable. This site has many provides links to follow on certain topics that provide the reader with more detail and information regarding certain points that are not covered as in depth by this source. This source does not list an author, however since it was produced by the CDC it can be assumed that the CDC is author. This information was posted for an informative purpose for the public, so others can make informed choices about the amount of protein that they consume.

This source provided me with background information about protein, which will be helpful to use in my paper so that i have some basic starting knowledge about protein and can further build off these facts. Although it was a short website and I will not be able to gather a large amount of detail off of it I think that having this knowledge and understanding will be helpful in further research and writing.


Review by Belinda Corniea
I found a few grammatical errors. You accidentally missed spelled a couple words but I fixed them :). Some of the ‘I’s are not capitalized in your paragraphs. Other than that, your sentence structure is good! Your summaries look good. I think they are a good length and are easy to understand what the main parts of your sources are. I think you did a good job with the CRAAP test – nothing is missing. I thought both of your reflections were great. You did a good job with making your response to the sources clear and you don’t need to add any more information to them. Based on your two sources, I think you are going to argue that athletes need to eat more food (like protein) than non-athletes. Overall, I thought your annotations were good and I couldn't find a weakness. Your annotation's strength would be the reflections.

Review by Rebecca Tuttle
I really liked how you chose two completely different articles for us to read about. You seem to have a wide range with your topic but you kept it focused at the same time. Your articles are detailed enough that I do understand you are writing about protein but like I said I would highly recommend you use that data from source 1 to convince the reader of your topic and its a nice reference to have. As for questions I'm left with after reading the summaries is which way will you be leaning with your paper? To me it seemed like source 1 is saying too much protein is fatty yet source two is telling you about foods with lots of protein. It seems like you did follow the CRAAP test with your review so good job with that! :) The weakness of the annotations is the confusion of what side you are taking, and maybe find sources that can give you more detail that you are looking for, but the strengths of the annotations outweigh the weaknesses. Your strengths is having range in your topic and your sources, digging further into the people who wrote the articles. Overall I think you did great and good job at staying on topic with protein.
