  • Mr. Coursey’s English 1Research Paper Project
    Literary Analysis:
    The House On Mango Street
    Lesson #2
    Sources and Research Notes
  • Research-Related TEKS
    brainstorm, consult with others, decide upon a topic, and formulate a major research question to address the major research topic.[20A]
    formulate a plan for engaging in research on a complex, multi-faceted topic.[20B]
    follow the research plan to compile data from authoritative sources in a manner that identifies the major issues and debates within the field of inquiry.[21A]
  • Besides Questions, What Else Do You Need?
    You can’t answer research questions without SOURCES
    Sources are the publications you look to for authoritative information to answer your questions and to provide examples that illustrate the answers you provide.
    (Publications are books, journals, magazines, web sites, videos, audio programs — sources of information that have been published for the public to see and/or hear.)
  • Besides Questions, What Else Do You Need?
    Like Research Questions, there are two types of Research Sources…
    Primary Sources
    Secondary Sources
  • Primary Sources
    A Primary source is an original article or book created by an individual or sometimes a group of people.
    In simple terms primary sources come firsthand from the source or person.
  • Primary Sources
    Primary Sources are the publications from which you get most of your information and examples.
    For this research project, The House On Mango Street will serve as our Primary Source.
  • Secondary Sources
    Secondary sourcesare sources that are written about primary sources.
    Secondary sources analyze, interpret, and discuss information about the primary source.
  • Secondary Sources
    Secondary Sources are the publications from which you get some of your information and examples, but less than from your Primary.
    For this research project, two articles of literary criticismwill serve as our Secondary Sources.
    (I will provide these in your Research Project Packet)
  • Research Source & Note Cards
    In a Research Project you must make lots of notes. Two kinds of notes, actually…
    Notes containing bibliographical information about your sources…
    Notes containing content information that you want to include in your Research Paper…
    AND you must have a system for keeping your notes coordinated and organized.
  • Research Source & Note Card Format
    For this, there’s a standard format we’ll use.
    It’s the format of a standard called MLA .

  • Research Source & Note Card Format
    Bibliography cards always contain:
    Author
    Title and Date of Material Edition or Version
    City and State of Publication
    Publisher or Vendor
    Publication Date
  • Research Source & Note Card Format
    Content cards are different.
    Content cards contain specific content info from primary and secondary sources) that you want to include in your research paper.
  • Research Source & Note Card Format
    You can write content note cards in three ways:
    Summary Cards
    Paraphrase Cards
    Quotation Cards
  • Summary Cards
    A summary card is when you condense, or shorten, what you are summarizing.
    This is written in your own words. You may include statistics, details, and examples, but the basic idea is to briefly tell what the author has said. These are always shorter than the original passages.
  • Paraphrase Cards
    When you paraphrase, you rewrite the original passage in your own words.
    You cannot just change the word order or add your own words. If you want to keep some of the important phrases, enclose them in quotation marks. Paraphrases are usually longer than the original passage.
  • Quotation Cards
    When you copy the material exactly as it was in the original source, you are using a quotation card.
    Make sure that your quote is exactly as it appeared in the original.
