Post two times in your blog (research journal), using the numbers, letters, and phrases in bold as the titles of your respective posts:
8a: Quoting, Paraphrasing, and Summarizing–Select a passage of several sentences from an online source related to your topic. Copy and paste the passage into your blog post and create a link to the page where you found it.
- Write a paragraph incorporating a short quotation from the passage. Modify the quotation using an ellipsis and brackets.
- Paraphrase the passage. Check your paraphrase carefully to make sure that it is accurate and appropriate.
- Summarize the passage. Check your summary carefully to make sure that it is accurate and appropriate.
8b: Checking Evaluations–Go to two of your classmates’ blogs (ENG 1020, ENG 122) and check their evaluations of websites (Research Journal Assignment 7b). In comments on those posts, offer suggestions for improving their evaluations or confirm that the evaluations are complete and accurate. In your own blog, post the web addresses of the pages where you commented.
Use the department and course number (ENG 1020 or ENG 122) and other appropriate tags (“Labels” on Blogger) for each of the three posts.
Please make sure that you have turned off word verification for your blog. You will find instructions on how to do so at the end of the original Research Journal assignment.
