Most study guides will address a '''text''' of some sort, from {{c|Poetry|poems}} to {{c|Prose|prose}}, and even television shows and films. While there is no one correct way of writing a study guide, most will contain similar sections, listed below in a somewhat arbitrary order. You might begin by having a look at well written examples, like the Wikipedia entry for “[[w:Indian Camp|Indian Camp]]” or one of the [[w:Wikipedia:Featured_articles#Literature and theatre|featured articles in literature and theater]]. These are all good models for study guides. You might also see the [[w:Wikipedia:WikiProject Novels/ArticleTemplate|article template for books]] to give you an idea for organizing your study guide and a place to focus your research. Unless you are an experienced wiki editor, you might begin small by choosing a a section of a study guide to '''research''', write, and edit. The following are various places ways to focus.
===Annotated Bibliography Entry===
===Annotated Bibliography Entry===
An easy way to get started adding to a study guide is be contributing an annotated bibliography entry. Simply, this is using a template to add a secondary resource to a bibliography, followed by a couple of sentences that explain the significance of the resource. Bibliographies are staples of scholarly writing and give researchers a list of resources. Annotated bibliographies should be subpages of the study guides (e.g. ''Odyssey''/Bibliography) and bibliography entries are organized alphabetically by '''author’s last name'''.
