Freewrite

  • Freewrite today about the EEA reading on evaluating and using sources.
    • Refer back to the chapter if you need to!

Peer Response to a Source Review

  • First, let's create a checklist, as a class, for making sure all required elements are included in the Source Review you edit.
  • Exchange Source Reviews with someone in your writing group. Fill out the check list, and UPLOAD the completed checklist onto your partner's wiki page.

To get credit for being here today, you need to have your Source Review uploaded to wiki, as well as a checklist completed by someone in your writing group.


Additional Research: Looking for Multiple Perspectives

Before you write another Source Review, you need to conduct some more research to get a grasp on the conversation surrounding your topic. You should make sure you've examined multiple perspectives before deciding on another source to review.

  • Open your freewrite from today, and list as many perspectives on your topic as possible.
  • Look at your research log. Identify the perspective of the articles you've already located.
  • Next, find an article from the databases or book chapter for perspectives you don't already have.
  • Add these articles to your research log.

Homework

  • Continue researching, and adding possible sources to your research log.
  • Bring your research log, either in printed or electronic format to class on Friday. This will count as a homework grade. You should have a minimum of 6 sources.
  • REVISE your Source Review, based on the feedback you received today.
