There are two parts to this discussion:
Integrating Source Materials (Quote and Paraphrase)
Here you are going to practice integrating source material. Find a quote you like and get the complete citation for it. Follow the instructions below, noting that both sections ask for a signal phrase to introduce the source material. Both parts require appropriate in-text citation in the style you are using.
When you respond to peers about integrating source materials, please look for their addressing all elements of the assignment, including the signal phrase, direct quote and in-text citation for the quotation and the signal phrase, closing commentary, and in-text citation for the paraphrase. Provide feedback on how the paraphrase reflects the content of the original.
Sharing Visual Element Ideas
After reading the materials in this and previous lessons, including Thonney’s traits of academic writing and this piece from the reading list, Visuals Help You Communicate), share two (2) ideas for visual elements that might be helpful in your research paper. Try to be as specific as possible. You may not find exactly the right pieces to add visual interest to your paper, but try to find some that might be similar to what you could use. You can share them as links or attachments.
