A succinct and accurate definition and explanation of abstracts and annotations. I could see this being useful as an assignment for students who need to write an abstract or annotated bibliography for a research paper.

This is an excellent and easy to understand tutorial explaining the difference between an annotation and an abstract. It tells the steps for writing each one, and lets you pause to review the steps. This is a topic that is confusing to a lot of students.
