Assignment Due 3/18: Additional Readings

Find and read three additional academic readings that you can incorporate into your final research paper.  On Monday, we will work on creating an annotated bibliography for these sources.
Please bring to class:
  • at least one of these sources
  • the bibliographic information for all three (author, title, publisher, date, print or web, etc.)

In the next week and the following week we will be working on summarizing and paraphrasing exercises.  We will also be discussing how to develop and support your thesis statement.

I apologize that we did not have enough time to take a look at the readings that you brought to class last week.  Please let me know if I can be of help in deconstructing your difficult readings!

I hope you all have been able to get at least a little bit of a break!  See you soon~
