For this discussion, we will look at the proper use of quoting and paraphrasing. No more than 15-20% of your final paper ought to include source support, but how you use that source support is very important. For this discussion, please review the information on pages 84-92. Next, complete this week’s discussion, as follows.
- For your main post, using Thomas Lord’s essay “What? I Failed? But I Paid for Those Credits! Problems of Students Evaluating Faculty” (pages 93-97), complete this document by clicking here. When ready (and preferably by Wednesday but certainly no later than Friday), submit it as an attachment. Please note that for this main post, you should avoid any use of signal phrases (attribution tags–see page 84)). While these can be useful in writing your research, the overuse of this practice takes away from your ability to have a voice in the paper.
- For the two peer posts, due before Sunday but posted on two different days from the main post and each other, explore your peers’ work and help them determine whether they have accurately quoted and paraphrased material from Lord’s writing. Also determine whether the citations and reference entries are correct.
|Week Three Discussion Assignment

(Minimum word count required: 50)
|Create the reference entry for your citation material.
The proper format is found in the notes at the end of this document.
|What did you learn about the nature of avoiding the first three forms of paraphrasing? Why are the first three forms not suitable for writing research? (Minimum word count required: 50)|
|Now that you have practiced paraphrasing, create an integrated quote using Lord’s essay. Be sure to include the proper citation. (Minimum word count required: 50)|
|Note: To create reference entry, use the following guidance (obtained from the OWL at Purdue).
Article or Chapter in an Edited Book
Author, A. A., & Author, B. B. (Year of publication). Title of chapter. In A. A. Editor & B. B. Editor (Eds.), Title of book (pages of chapter). Location: Publisher.
Note: When you list the pages of the chapter or essay in parentheses after the book title, use “pp.” before the numbers: (pp. 1-21). This abbreviation, however, does not appear before the page numbers in periodical references, except for newspapers.
O’Neil, J. M., & Egan, J. (1992). Men’s and women’s gender role journeys: A metaphor for healing, transition, and transformation. In B. R. Wainrib (Ed.), Gender issues across the life cycle (pp. 107-123). New York, NY: Springer.
Additional notes: Remember that your reference entry ought to begin with the author of the essay. Also, the date to be used should be the date of the textbook.
