Transcript: Direct Quotes Sources In English Class In History Class In Science Class In College Possibly at your future job Basically, it is important. Features of Research Paper Writing Academic writing should be free of contractions (it's, can't, doesn't), slang , and abbreviations (Jan., Dec.) Using sources enables you to provide evidence for your claims/reasons They do not speak FOR you; instead, they help you develop your own argument by engaging in dialogue with other writers. Research Papers Sometimes you want to show how your ideas differ from those in the source. Example: Although Smith (2009) asserts that greed is the key motivator of this character, the second chapter indicates that other motivating factors are at work. Contrast Explicitness Evidence Complement Sometimes, information from a source complements or adds to what you are saying. Example: Air New Zealand implements effective advertising techniques by incorporating symbols of national identity. As Jones (2005) asserts, consumer identification influences purchasing habits. You are responsible for the claims you make and for understanding your sources This responsibility is reflected by properly citing your sources. The Research Writing Process Introduction Body Paragraphs Conclusion Paragraph **body paragraphs must contain researched information from several different sources and must be cited properly** 1) Decide on a topic 2) Thesis Statement/Outline 3) Research sources that will support what you have to say 4) Revise outline if needed 5) Draft your paper 6) Edit/Revise your paper Responsibility Use direct quotations sparingly and for effect (and only when you can not say something better yourself). Example: Bird (2011) refers to this solution as “insensitive” to native cultures (p. 2). Accuracy You should clearly state your stance in relation to the source you are using. The relationship between ideas is clarified through the use of transition/signaling words and phrases Research Paper Structure Vocabulary, facts, and figures are used accurately and are consistent with the standards When will we have to write these? Formality

Great with students, workers, family, etc. For example: With games like Jeopardy and Family Feud, players can pick practically any answers. The person who is running the game will have to have all of the answers in order to determine if players are correct or not. However, with a game like Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the players only have a choice between answers, A, B, C, or D. Therefore, when the player decides their answer, the person running the game clicks it, and the game will tell them whether they are right or wrong.

You must cite all research, EVEN IF IT IS IN YOUR OWN WORDS. Just enough information is given to refer the reader to the source in the works cited page at the end of the paper Usually this information is the author’s last name and the page from which it was taken (Smith 22) Notice there is no "p" for page. When there is no author given you put a shortened form of the title in parenthesis (“Navaho Claims” 84) All information written in parenthesis must use proper punctuation.

Transcript: Who are today’s heroes? Certainly we must name the hundreds of police officers and fire fighters who risk their lives to save others during national disasters. We must admire missionaries who sacrifice comfortable lives to aid the impoverished in order to bring comfort and hope. And we recognize the many political figures who daily strive to lead their countries into safe and profitable futures. Yet, while we agree that these individuals are indeed heroic, we must also look at those who stand tall in other ways. Oprah Winfrey, America’s beloved talk show host, is one such individual. While she possesses many wonderful qualities, Oprah is a modern day hero because of her strong spirit, her intelligence, and her commitment to helping others. Strong spirit. Intelligence. Commitment to helping others. These truly heroic qualities are embodied in the person of Oprah Winfrey. As she begins her 26th season of broadcasting, we look forward to more years of inspirational messages and quality entertainment. Even more, we welcome the compassionate leadership of this amazing woman.
