By continuing to use LinkedIn’s SlideShare service, you agree to the revised terms, so please take a few minutes to review them.
How integrated are your sources? When integrating any sources, you have three choices:
1) Direct quotation
2) Summary (taking the original, putting it in your own words, and shaving your new version down to a much smaller version than the original)
3) Paraphrase (taking the original, putting it in your own words, and keeping the length nearly the same as the original.
****Whichever you choose, you MUST put a citation after******
MLA: put a citation after the quote, paraphrase, or summary.
Showalter explains that “patience is necessary” in examining each painting (76).
Many writers explain that “patience is necessary” in examining each painting (Showalter 76).
Several writers focus on patience in viewing art (Showalter 76).
The comma before a quotation is only necessary IF it could be replaced by the word “that.”
Never drop a quotation into your paragraph without framing it in someway with your own words.
Never include a block quotation unless you plan to spend an equal length discussing (eg do not put 20 lines of a quotation in your paper unless you have 20 lines to spare of your own text to discuss it thoroughly).

George P. Landow Main Points
“Hypertext as Collage-Writing”
Words describing this jumbling-together:
These concepts “foreground the writing process”
Landow: Main Points
Landow creates a hypertext to accompany Joris’ work on Collage Between Writing and Painting
Landow’s creation (including links to definitions, Picasso’s work etc) = open-ended, “a kind of Velcro-text to which various kinds of materials began attaching themselves”
Landow: translated/transferred his hypertext into the essay we are currently reading—he mentions that much had to change/get reduced.
Landow: Main Points
“ Text composed of lexias . . . Linked electronically by multiple paths, chains, or trails in an open-ended web” (Landow 137)
Landow: Issues with Hypertext
Difficulties with Hypertext (in 1997):
Some systems don’t allow the clickable menu and the text being read to be viewed at the same time
Burdensome for the writer (lots of time and energy)
Single screen means text is always replaced by another text; difficult to retrieve
Web must be large to make a “true” hypertext with many different options
We need networked computing
With a hypertext, the power moves from the author to the reader.
I have created a wiki so we can practice Landow’s multilinear, multiauthor hypertext. Follow these steps:
