Transcript of Research is Fun Part 2

Start Here: Working Thesis
So, to incorporate outside information:

1. Understand
what you read
2. See
where this information could possibly fit in your assignment/argument
3. Provide
context for information to be cited (if necessary)
4. Include
source material as follows:

Use complete lead-ins when you use ANY source for the first time:

Author’s last name + (publication year) + quotation verb + q/p/s + (p. or para. #).

ex. Delgado (2009) argues literacy is a priority. The desire for literacy is both an academic and societal imperative.

5. Include
explanation for incorporated information

Plagiarism on report/ANY assignment will result in an
automatic failing paper grade!
Good Notes = No Plagiarism

Search with a purpose, every time
Spending time coming up with keywords and their synonyms IS a time saver.

Ex. Native Americans --> Native people in the Americas --> original settlers

Hollywood --> popular media -->
movies -->films -->motion pictures

Utilize Boolean operators: and, or, quotation marks (p. 431)
Search Intelligently

Things to Keep in Mind
Quote – when you could not have put words any better
: author’s ideas, author’s words; use quotations marks, must provide page or paragraph number



Summarization – concise, key points only
; usually used with longer selections like textbook
sections, book chapters: author’s ideas, your words; must cite



Paraphrase – the point-by-point summary of another’s ideas, expressed in your own words
: BUT in approximately same # of words, without changing original meaning; must cite

Good Sources = Good Notes

Procrastination is never good!

Need to know what?

Usually look for answers by getting info over topic’s background (highly recommended).

Can use library’s books, online databases,and /or reference section

Look over the internet judiciously (p. 432)
Spend Little Time Wasting Time
Research

Better Understanding
CELEBRATE RESEARCH!
When in doubt, cite it!
Working thesis = limited topic + information on issue

Thesis is in transition; it may change as you go through writing, researching process.



Hint: Address the prompt’s problem as a starting point.

Make sure to take notes

The good ol’ way : note cards -->an oldie but still a goodie

Another good way: keep notes organized much like note cards, but in a spiral

A more modern way: use your computer to help you here --> create files, stickies, annotation tools

No matter what you choose, all notes:
-should document p/s/q
-show where you got the information
This actually works!
