  • Darling, Nancy. Peer Pressure is not Peer Influence. Principal Sept./Oct. 2002: 67-69. Print.Darling, a professor of education at Bard College, writes that adolescents are most often influenced not by what their friends do or say, but how they think their friends will react to a situation. Darling asserts that by providing positive information, involving all students, and grouping students differently, schools can provide opportunities to reinforce positive values. The idea of preconceived notions of peer reaction is better addressed here than in other sources that I found. This idea of adolescent positive peer influence is a timely theory and strongly supports the theme of my paper.A Sample Annotated Entry

  • Remember: annotated bibliographies are simply an organized list of the sources that you have used, each of which is followed by a brief note: the annotation. The annotation itself is a brief description and evaluation or the book or article.
