  3. 3. Decompose…<br />From a page on web<br />The child poverty rate in America is often two to three times higher than that of other major industrial nations.<br />
  4. 4. Decompose…<br />From a page on web<br />Only 10% to 20% of company training transfers to the job.<br />
  5. 5. Decompose…<br />From a page on web<br />The number of students in a class is not an important factor when the goal of instruction is the acquisition of subject matter knowledge and academic skills. <br />Smaller class sizes are more effective than larger ones when the goals of instruction are motivational, altitudinal, or higher-level cognitive processes. <br />
  6. 6. Decompose…<br />From a page on web<br />According to Dr. Kenneth Gray, Professor Emeritus at Penn State and author of Other Ways to Win, Americans overinvest in baccalaureate degrees. <br />
  7. 7. Scholarly documentation…<br />Refers to footnotes, endnotes, bibliographies, and so forth: all the apparatus that scholars use in their writing to acknowledge debts to their predecessors.<br />
  8. 8. Principle…<br />¶1.10 in APA Manual: “Researchers do not claim the words and ideas of another as their own; they give credit where credit is due.” <br />Whenever you quote someone directly, you need to cite the source.<br />Whenever you use someone’s original ideas, you need to cite the source, even if you are not quoting directly. <br />Acknowledge the work of others.<br />Provide others access to sources so that an independent view of the work is possible.<br />
  9. 9. Qualities…<br />Accurate—Obtain all information necessary (APA defines). <br />Precise—Refer to page numbers, tables, figures.<br />Holistic, not selective—Do not pick and choose favorable fact and arguments.<br />Favoring scholarly, rather than popular works—Use refereed work, but carefully.<br />Focus on research, not the researchers—Persons do not count; the work does.<br />
