As usual, we had another busy class. However, you get a short break because of the Golden Week vacation next week.
Once again, good work with your discussions. I was also impressed that some of the leaders used gestures effectively (we'll have a lesson on this in May).
However, remember these points to improve your discussions next week:
We learned how to make a bibliography for a research paper. A bibliography is an alphabetical list of all the sources you use for your research paper. When you organize your source information in your bibliography, you need to arrange it using the MLA style (MLA=Modern Language Association).
MLA referencing is one of the ways you can document your sources in your research paper. This style is used in the humanities, especially for writing about language and literature. Below, you can find the handout from class with the most common MLA entries.
MLA Referencing Guide
We also learned about the different parts of an introduction:
b. general statements
c. thesis statement
You can choose from five different hooks:
d. interesting facts
Please be aware that your writing must be submitted on time if you would like to receive my comments. If you submit your writing after a deadline, it will not be checked.
Enjoy the Golden Week vacation!
If you missed our lesson on Wednesday, make sure you review the Introduction and Bibliography Guidelines before you submit your tasks.
Don't forget our lesson is cancelled on May 1. Remember to come back on May 8.
Blog Question #3:
