FIRST, we’ll check in with the sources in our collaborative annotated bibliography: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Vx-i4ocCp2vxbwzCXz4Psqy0vLhG-x3eKTcDH_zX4bc/edit
- First, let’s organize them into clear sub-categories
- What makes certain annotations more successful than others?
- Do you see sources you want to incorporate into your paper?
Building on the new resources we’ve collected, we’ll review Harvey’s “elements” on the back of the assignment sheet–to understand why “sources” are only useful if we’re “oriented” toward them, and if they become well-integrated into a paper through “structure” and “stitching”
- You need to understand how you’re trying to “connect the parts” of your second essay in order to understand how to develop it into paper 3: “As a result”: Connecting the Parts
- One key strategy the chapter addresses is “transitions,” which we’ll focus on today.
- AND, for even more examples of transitional phrases, see this link: http://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/Transitions.html
First, we highlighted types of transitional phrases you should be incorporating into your revision of essay 2 (a.k.a.: “Assignment 3”).
Then, we spent time identifying multiple claims in a paragraph… (thanks for letting us use your essay, Alex!)
… Last, but not least, we incorporated transitional phrases into actual sentences.
(p.s. Notice my use of transitional phrases in this post!)
We will spend the last 90 minutes of class working on our papers, following exercise 2 on page 120 of the “Connecting the Parts” chapter embedded in this post.
*REMINDERS* An updated draft should be posted to My Reviewers by this Friday at midnight. Check back later this week for peer review directions for this weekend….
