Week 03 Journal: Quoting, Paraphrasing, & Summarizing
Create Journal Entry
With your first major assignment due soon, and with the final paper growing ever close, it may be valuable to begin thinking about how you interact with sources you come across in your research.
Use this journal to reflect on your past experiences with the strategies of quoting, paraphrasing, and summarizing. How have you used each in the past? Which do you feel most comfortable with? Least comfortable with? Which do you think will prove most valuable to you as you move through this class?
Please keep in mind that your journal entry must be written in full sentences and be a minimum of 250 words.
Based on the article you annotated for this week, answer the following questions:
Who is the audience for the article?
What is the purpose of the article?
Discuss how the title, publisher, language, and structure of the article speak to a specific audience (as opposed to other potential audiences for the topic under discussion).
