5 Multiple choice questions

  1. opportunity to find related books on a subject next to one another on the shelves.
  2. Two purposes 1. to locate a quoted or paraphrased passage in the source (#). 2. to provide any other information not present in the lead in that would be needed to get the reader to the documentation information alphabetized in the Work Cited page.
    If they do not fulfill one or both of the purposes--as, for example, when there are no page numbers (website source) and the author's name is present in the lead in), then you do not need a parenthetical reference. qtd. in = quoted in = use when you quote someone quoted your source
    Locate paren. ref directly after quoted or paraphrased material (NOT at end of ¶ or after you have commented upon or interpreted it).
  3. : keep a list of your favorites-such as there vs their vs they're-and check for them in editing. dang = dangling or misplaced modifier = participial phrase or clause mislocated next to something it does not modify
  4. Follow style requirements exactly!--That's what your professors are looking for. Lead ins: All quoted and paraphrased material MUST BE LED IN! (an author's name and page number in parentheses afterward does NOT suffice!) Lead ins: If full sentence, use colon after; otherwise, use comma or nothing, depending on whether you'd use a mark of punct. there without quoatation marks.
    Lead ins: If initial, include author's full name and authority. For subsequent quoted or paraphrased material from same source, use author's last name only.
    Lead ins: Omit any info mentioned in lead in from paren. ref.
    Quotes: Be brief. Quote only what you must have in exactly the author's words. Mostly you will paraphrase with snippets of quoting. Long set in quotes are rare, esp. in short papers.
    Quotes: Always process quoted and paraphrased material before moving on to the next paragraph.
    Quotes: use square brackets to indicate necessary changes to original--but only if absolutely unavoidable.
    Quotes: [sic] = [thus it is in the original] (sic = thus in Latin); use with care to avoid undermining your source's authority or engaging in an ad hominem attack rather than a responsible argument.
    Works Cited Page: Alphabetize, double space just like rest of paper, use italics in lieu of underlining, number in with rest of paper, indent second and subsequent line(s) of each entry
  5. stories, concrete examples, personal experience, clearly stated and simple assertions
