Enc1102 ann bib intropart2

  1. 1. + Part II
  2. 2. + Journal Prompt: Friday, 2/17 Your research topic is: How is technology affecting how students do research? In your groups from last class, write a paragraph that explains how you could include the article “Is Google Making Us Stupid?” in your paper. You can start with: “Carr’s article is relevant to my topic because…” Include at least one quote from the article, and be sure to explain your quote. Work on your annotated bib and bring your laptop to class on Monday! Also bring your sources
  3. 3. + Example:Lamott’s book is relevant to my topic because she focuses on the students’writing processes as determinants of their confidence with writing.Stating, “Students’ lack of confidence with writing often limits their abilities, ”meaning that students limit their writing potential when they doubtthemselves, Lamott argues that writing teachers should work to increase theirstudents’ confidence with writing (89).Several of the chapters in Part 1 addressthe writing process and would serve to generate discussion on students owndrafting and revising processes. Though Lammott does not answer my researchquestion directly, I will use her description of the writing process to explain howstudents are often lacking confidence in their writing abilities. You should try to include at least one quote in your annotation. This will help you as you include quotes in your paper. When you include a quote, always remember to explain what the quote means. The page number should go at the end of your sentence
  4. 4. + Format: Annotations  Eachannotation should start with a citation in MLA format:  Lamott, Anne. Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life. New York: Anchor Books, 1995. Print.
  5. 5. + Format: Annotations  Next, follow the steps for writing the first paragraph of a rhetorical precis for each of your articles:  http://www.buzzfeed.com/ashleybaccam/how-to- be-snooki
  6. 6. + Format: Annotations  Inyour second paragraph, explain how the claims made by the author are relevant to your research topic.
  7. 7. + First Paragraph In her 2011 video, “How to be a Snooki,” Snooki asserts that becoming a Snooki requires a tan, pink lipstick, a poof, and animal prints. Snooki supports this assertion by transforming a young girl into a Snooki by doing her makeup and hair, and giving her an animal print scarf. Her purpose was to show that becoming a Snooki requires a hair and makeup transformation in order to have the perfect Snooki look. Her intended audience are young girls who look up to Snooki, and she targets this audience by using a young girl in her example.
  8. 8. + Second ParagraphEmig argues, “The FCAT Writes exam is useful to the students’writing abilities, because it teaches them to write an essay in astructured way,” which means teaching students a writing structureis a useful tool for teachers (78). Though the FCAT Writes doesprovide students with a way to structure their essays, I’m not surethat this structure really helps them be better writers in college. Forthis reason, I will use Emig’s claim to show that though somepeople support the structure of the FCAT Writes exam, there areother structures that can be useful to students and their college-writing abilities. Though Emig focuses on providing a history of theFCAT Writes exam, I will be using her argument for the test’simplementation in my research paper.In your groups, add a paragraph description of how you wouldrelate the article to the topic, “How is technology affectingstudents?”
  9. 9. + General Formatting  List each entry in alphabetical order  Do not number your entries  Follow MLA format for all entries  Double space your bibliography  Do not add extra spaces between entries  Use hanging indent after the first line of citation
  10. 10. + Example 1 Lamott, Anne. Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life. New York: Anchor Books, 1995. Print. Lamott asserts that students argue mostly with their own inner critic when writing a paper. She supports this assertion through a variety of anecdotes, in which she uses humor to display students’ insecurities with their own writing abilities. Her purpose was to show that students should be more confident when writing, because they are often their own tough critics. Her intended audience includes writing students and teachers, and she targets this audience by using anecdotes from both the student and the teacher perspectives on writing.
  11. 11. + Lamott’s book is relevant to my topic because she focuses on the students’ writing processes as determinants of their confidence with writing. Stating, “Students’ lack of confidence with writing often limits their abilities,” meaning that students limit their writing potential when they doubt themselves, Lamott argues that writing teachers should work to increase their students’ confidence with writing (89).Several of the chapters in Part 1 address the writing process and would serve to generate discussion on students own drafting and revising processes. Though Lammott does not answer my research question directly, I will use her description of the writing process to explain how students are often lacking confidence in their writing abilities.
  12. 12. + How many annotations should I have? Approximately 15-20, though some topics will require less, while others may need more.
  13. 13. + Should we use quotes in our annotations?  Yes,you should incorporate quotes to support your claims about the article, usually (but not always) in your second paragraph.  Youcan also refute these claims in your second paragraph.
