A) Prononciation
When speaking French some letter are not sounded out and are considered silent letters. The first letter is “H”. An example would be the word Henri. It would pronounced as if spelled “enri”. The final “e” in a word would also be silent such as Louise would be pronounced “Louis”. Next is the final “s” such as Louis. It would be pronounced “Loui”. Other final consonants that would also be silent such “Richard” would be pronounced “Richar” or “Margot” would be pronounced “Margo”. The exceptions would be words ending in c,k, f, l, and sometimes r. Examples of these words would be Marc, Patrick, Michel, actif, Victor and bonjour. The letters at the end of these words would be pronounced.

An annotated bibliography is a useful way to start a research project because it asks you to collect and summarize sources that you might use later in a research paper. Collecting and summarizing sources early in the research process helps you narrow your research topic. The bibliography can also help you evaluate the possible usefulness of source material for later use in a paper. This handout is designed to show you how to create an annotated bibliography. Specifically, it will guide you through the process of creating an annotated bibliography by 1) describing in general terms the meaning of the words “annotated bibliography,” 2) explaining in general terms how to write an annotated bibliography, and 3) offering an example of what an annotated bibliography could look like. However, it is important to note that individual instructors may have different requirements for their annotated bibliography assignments. Please check with your teacher or assignment sheet BEFORE following the advice in this handout. What is an Annotated Bibliography? If you have been assigned to write an annotated bibliography, you might be confused about what the words "annotated" and "bibliography" mean. The...

Scoring Explanation Ideas and Analysis = 1 The absence of a thesis (an idea that the argument as a whole works to explore/explain/support) has a significant impact on the quality of this response. Without one, the writer’s intentions are difficult to discern. While the writer does generate a few ideas, he does not do so in service of an argumentative purpose. For example, the notion that people’s jobs are lost as a result of new technologies could be productive, but without a connection to a larger argument, this attempt at analysis accomplishes very little.
