Just one more week, and you'll be finished your research paper. You must be relieved!!
Peer Editing Discussions:
In the first part of our lesson, you discussed your peer editing activities with your partner. When you edit/revise your conclusion, you can use your partner's comments. Also, check corrections I've made in your research paper. You may have made the same errors in your conclusion.
For our lesson next week, I'll talk to the remaining students about your drafts. Make sure you prepare your questions because I'll only have about 5 minutes to talk with you.
Computer Room for Dec. 11:
For our conferences, we'll be in the computer room 218, so remember to bring a USB and your Aogaku ID card to access the computers.
For your final draft, you have to:
* submit it by December 19 by 11:00am by email
* submit a copy in class on December 19
Blog Question #9:
What advice did your partner give you about your writing in your peer editing discussions?
*Write 10-12 sentences.
*Use capitalization, punctuation & spelling correctly.

The Christmas decorations and lights are already up throughout Tokyo. I always love the Christmas season in Tokyo.
At the beginning of class, we reviewed some of the key terms we've studied in class over the past two weeks: in-text citation, plagiarism, paraphrasing and shared language.
We also reviewed how to make an in-text citation for a second-hand quote and how to paraphrase.
For the last part of our lesson, we learned how to summarize. This is similar to paraphrasing in that you use your own words, but you only include the main ideas from a passage. Remember to include an in-text citation for both paraphrases and summaries. However, if you are paraphrasing and/or summarizing general facts, you do not need an in-text citation.
The steps for paraphrasing and summarizing are on the lesson handouts, which you can download from the website in the Writing --> Research Essay section.
