  • Transcript

    • 1. Scholarly Etiquette and The Anatomy of a Citation
    • 2. Scholarly Etiquette
      • What is it?
      • What does it mean for this class?
      • There are several levels of scholarly etiquette we are concerned with in this course:
        • Daily Interactions
        • Writing Style
        • Papers and Projects
    • 3. Scholarly Etiquette: Daily Interactions
      • Common courtesy in class discussions and blog postings
      • Respect your classmates and group members
        • allow them to speak without interruption
        • respond to each others comments fairly, even when you disagree
      • Make sure that all group members are having input in group discussions and decisions.
    • 4. Scholarly Etiquette: Writing Style
      • Informal technologies, formal writing style
        • When using the blogs and Google docs, remember that you are being graded on your grammar and style even though these are informal communication technologies.
        • Use spell check and always re-read your assignments before they are due-those squiggly green and red lines mean something!
        • Writing style doesn’t have to be overly elaborate, but don’t drop into slang, especially when writing in emails (and especially to other professors).
    • 5. Scholarly Etiquette: Papers and Projects
      • Research and writing
        • locating and reading various pieces of information written by others and then creating a work of your own.
      • Citations and Bibliographies
        • show the research you have done
        • give credit to those who did the work
        • list where future researchers can find that information
      • By showing where you located your information and on what you base your conclusions, your own work carries more significance to your reader.
    • 6. What citation styles have you used?
      • MLA
      • APA
      • Chicago
      • Turabian
