Assignment 1: Research Sources
By Saturday, March 28, 2015, post a directly quoted paragraph from one source that is appropriate for your current research project. Then offer a paraphrase or summary of the same paragraph. Be sure to appropriately cite both the original paragraph and your paraphrase or summary.
After you have posted your source and paraphrase, by Wednesday, April 1, 2015, respond to at least two other students’ posts. Some questions to ponder as your do so are as follows:
To receive discussion points, you must describe specific criteria that make the sources acceptable, the citation correct, or the paraphrase well written. Be wary of discussing the topic rather than offering substantive criticism.
Discussion question responses should be at least one-half, double-spaced page in length. Your responses to your peers’ writing should be a good paragraph in length and should include specifics from the text if you are attempting to make a point.
Before you begin to write your discussion answers, think about the points made in the lecture regarding answering discussion questions. All of your answers must be in complete sentence form, and you should avoid plagiarism at all costs by citing the readings correctly and composing your own original responses. Responses that copy ideas from the Internet or from another student will be considered plagiarism and will be treated as such.
