Research Journal Assignment #15

Post two times  in your blog (research journal), using the numbers, letters, and phrases in bold as the titles of your respective posts:

RJA #15a: Word Cloud–Create a word cloud with your research paper using Wordle.  Copy and paste the text from your paper (excluding the identification information on the first page and the Works Cited list) into the top box on the Wordle Create page. Then click on “Go.”  After you create the word cloud and format the font, layout, and color to your liking, be sure you save it to the public gallery.  (The button is at the bottom right of the page.)  Copy and paste the URL (web address) of your word cloud or put the word cloud itself into a post on your blog. If you need help, watch one or more of the following YouTube videos:  “Web Site of the Week – Wordle,” “Wordle tutorial,” “Adding a Word Cloud from wordle.net to your Blog,” or another video about Wordle on YouTube.

RJA #15b: Reflection on What You LearnedWrite at least one paragraph about what you learned in this class this semester and how you will be able to use it in future classes and your professional and personal life.

Use the department and course number (ENG 1020 or ENG 122) and other appropriate tags (“Labels” on Blogger) for each of the posts.

The Sword of the Templars by Paul Christopher

I didn’t like Paul Christopher‘s The Sword of the Templars as much as I have James Rollins‘ and Steve Berry‘s novels, but it was worth reading.  I’ll probably read more of his work, including the sequels to The Sword of the TemplarsThe Templary Cross and The Templar Throne.  Both are scheduled to be released next year.

APA-Style Paper

Revise and add to part of your argumentative paper to create a paper at least 1200 words long using APA-style documentation. This shorter paper may cover background information on your topic or one or more of the main reasons for your claim.

At least four different credible sources must be cited in the paper and, if appropriate, listed on the References page.  The sources must be of at least two different types (book, reference work, periodical article, website, and field research).

You may use the APA format template (ENG 1020, ENG 122).

Research Journal Assignment #14

Post once  in your blog (research journal), using the number and phrases in bold as the title of your post:

RJA #14: Annotated Bibliography, Part 2–Following the instructions for the annotated bibliography, create annotated MLA-style entries for six more of the sources you will be using for your argumentative paper.  Make sure that your bibliographic information is in proper MLA style.

Use the department and course number (ENG 1020 or ENG 122) and other appropriate tags (”Labels” on Blogger) for the post.

The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown

I think Dan Brown‘s best novel is Angels & Demons followed by The Da Vinci Code and The Lost Symbol, in that order.  His first two rank far behind the others.  I don’t want to spoil things for people who haven’t read The Lost Symbol yet, but I was disappointed.  I’m probably spoiled after recently reading so many novels by James Rollins and Steve Berry.

I wonder why it takes Brown so much longer to finish a novel than it does Rollins or Berry, when their plots are more complicated and require research on more subjects.
