In today's lesson, we had a review of how you can use sources in your essay. We reviewed how to cite quotes and how to paraphrase.
We completed an activity on how to cite direct and second-hand quotes.
When you cite a quote, you need this information in your citation:
(author's name, year, p. or para. #)
e.g. (Takeda, 2015, p. 73)
When you cite a second-hand quote, you need to add the expression "as cited in."
e.g. (as cited in Takeda, 2015, p. 54)
If you don't have the author's name, remember to use the title of the article.
We then reviewed how to paraphrase. When you paraphrase, you have to keep the shared language, find synonyms for the other words, and re-write the information with a new sentence structure. Also, don't forget to include an in-text citation for your paraphrases, too.
Near the end of class, you had some time to ask me questions about the comments on your outline. Make sure that if you have to change your reasons for body paragraph #1 and/or #2 to check with me first.
I also returned your graded classification essays and peer editing tasks.
