    • Definition of a fact

  • 18. Alice vs. Shirley
    • View of research
      • Shirley: Research is not creative, but a static task designed to examine students on their understanding of facts
      • Alice: Research is creative, and students are scholars “w h o work to find answers to problem questions” and who “s e t reading and writing goals for themselves that will allow them to think constructively.”
  • 19. Alice vs. Shirley
    • What “tool” does Alice have in her toolbox that Shirley does not?
      • Rhetorical situation
  • 20. More questions
    • It seems like everything worth saying has already been said—how do you create an original argument? How can research be creative? Do you think that this would make research more enjoyable?
    • How is it possible for sources to disagree in ways other than pro/con?
    • Why does Kantz think that plagiarism can be understandable, or even inevitable?
    • Why does Kantz suggest that multiple drafts are useful?
  • 21. What did the instructor do wrong, and how could she fix it?
    • Minimal notes on draft, and those notes had to do with formalist issues
    • Didn’t sequence the assignment, pacing it with enough time to allow students’ thoughts to develop
    • Didn’t teach rhetorical reading and writing strategies
    • Gave “weak assignment and an ineffective critique of the draft”
    • Didn’t tell Shirley she was expected to say something original, that she should look for discrepant facts/conflicts in her sources, or that she should use her notes to comment on the sources and use the notes to plan her paper
    • Didn’t teach Shirley to look for arguments instead of facts
