necessary for achieving the dream. The American dream is a reality that is reserved for those that are willing to put forth the extra effort into the quest. Topic Sentence #1 Topic Sentence #2 The American dream is an actuality when the individual striving for said dream has an unrelenting drive directed only on that goal.

Is the American Dream Withering or Just Changing? TIME Magazine. 26 September 2013: 1-3 (WHEN IN DOUBT, GO TO www.easybib.com ) Teacher Sample of Annotated Bib Paragraph

Kadlec, Dan. "Is the American Dream Withering or Just Changing?" TIME Magazine 23 Sept. 2013: 1-3. Print. This article is about the American Dream and how it is changing throughout the generations of America. A strong argument is made to present that the dream is merely changing and not dying as some may believe; it is up to the new generations of Americans to change and adapt to meet the needs of the dream and not stand around like how their elders have done. The article discusses the mistrust that elders have in the younger generation, but this is disproved when the author proves that the younger generation has learned from the mistakes of their parents. The author wrote this source for the American people for reassurance that the American Dream does exist, but that it is just changing with the world around us. I am confident that this is a credible source because TIME magazine is a reputable source and the author has been researching this topic

of financial stability for over 25 years. Even though this is a nice source, I will not be using it for my essay; it does not meet the needs of my stance, which will discuss the illusion of dream for women.
