An annotated bibliography is simply a Works Cited list with notes on each source. Its purpose is to help you evaluate sources you might use to support a research paper or speech. 

Start with some background reading--from the Library's Articles & Databases page, click on the Gale Virtual Reference Library and use "parental involvement education" as a search term.

For more specific articles, try our EBSCO databases. You can search "parental involvement schools" or "parental involvement education," or more specific terms depending on what you are trying to find out.

For help creating an annotated bibliography, see the Purdue Online Writing Lab on Annotated Bibliographies. Be sure to also look at the samples and examples listed in the sidebar to the left. The MJC Library & Learning Center also has a Cite Your Sources guide. Under the MLA submenu, you'll find instructions plus a helpful example of an annotated bibliography.
