Transcript

  • 1. Research Strategies Taking notes using note cards Holly Frilot Collins Hill High School Spring 2010
  • 2. What do I do first?
    • Create a Works Cited Note Card.
    • This includes all the citation info exactly as it would appear on your Works Cited page (author, title, etc.)
    • It’s good to do this BEFORE you take your first note.
    Example on next page
  • 3. Works Cited Note Card Example #1 1 “ Graphic Designer.” Career Cruising . Anaca Technologies, 2010. Web. 24 Mar. 2010. Citation: Use proper MLA format with the correct punctuation. This citation will look the same on your Works Cited page. Source: Label this card with a number. The first Works Cited card is 1, the second is 2, and so on. Then, all your notes that come from this source will have the number 1 in the top right corner. Format: Notice that this entry is double-spaced, so skip lines when writing on a note card. Also, the second line (and any other lines after) is indented.
  • 4. Works Cited Note Card Example #2 2 Smith, Grace. “Graphic Designer.” Popular Jobs. Ed. Linda Shepherd. Seattle: Frost Publishers, Inc., 2008. 45-61. Print. Citation: Use proper MLA format with the correct punctuation. Depending on what type of source it is, different information will be needed. Source: This is a new source, so it has a new number. All notes from this source will also have a number 2 in the upper right corner.
  • 5. Works Cited Formats

  • 6. Time to take notes!
    • One idea or “note” should go on each note card.
    • Give your note card a topic in the top left.
    • Use the same source number from the Works Cited card in the top right.
    Example on next page
  • 7. Note Cards Career Description 1 Graphic designers create logos and graphics that represent companies. They develop personalities for companies through advertisements, posters, brochures, websites, etc. (“Graphic Designer”) Topic: This is what the note is about. Source: This number corresponds to the number on your Works Cited card and shows where the information came from. Parenthetical Citation: Include the citation you would use in your paper here. Often there is an author name and page number, but citation types differ. Note: This is your research in note form. Typically one note, or one sentence, is on each card.
  • 8. Note card tips
    • Note cards can include one of the following:
      • paraphrased information,
      • direct quotes, or
      • a sentence that incorporates a partial quote or quotes
  • 9. Career Description 1 Graphic designers create logos and graphics that represent companies. They develop personalities for companies through visual communication. (“Graphic Designer”) Paraphrase: This type of card has information that you have put into your own words. Client Communication 1 “ Designers must find out what the client wants, who the target audience is, what kind of budget is available, and when the project must be completed.” (“Graphic Designer”) Direct Quote: Information that is copied directly from the source must have quotation marks.
  • 10. Incorporating quotes Career Description 1 Functioning as “experts in visual communication,” graphic designers are called upon to “persuade, entertain, and inform the public” about a client’s product or service. (“Graphic Designer”) Incorporating quotes: This note card shows information that is both paraphrased and quoted directly in one sentence. This is an effective way to incorporate quotes in your paper.
  • 11. Parenthetical Citations
    • Parenthetical citations are used in your paper to show where you got your information from.
    • They can vary according to the source type.
    • A parenthetical citation from a book may look like this: (Smith 45)
    • One from a website with no author may look like this: (“Graphic Designer”)
    • For additional information on parenthetical citations, go to http://www.chhsmediacenter.com/writing--mla.html
  • 12. Career Description 1 Graphic designers create logos and graphics that represent companies. They develop personalities for companies through visual communication. (“Graphic Designer”) This parenthetical citation shows a website article with no author. Types of graphic designers 2 “ The term ‘graphic designer’ was not coined until 1922 by William Addison Dwiggins.” (Gatta, Lange, and Lyons 18) This parenthetical citation shows a book source with author and page number. Notice this number shows that it is a different source.
  • 13. Final thoughts
    • Teachers may require you to do note cards differently. Always check with your teacher.
    • If you need more help, ask your teacher, the media specialists, or go to
