EN 101 Source Evaluation Assignment (15% of final grade) For your final project you will choose a recent article/essay that examines some aspect of technologically mediated communication (much like the ones we’ve been reading in class. Based on that piece you will compose an essay made up of three short parts: A summary A rhetorical analysis An evaluation Personal reflection In preparation for that assignment we will be creating a source evaluation. During our visits to the library you will be working to identify a primary source (an article that will serve as the focus of your project) and secondary sources (research that will help you to evaluate the claims that are maid in your primary source). Overview and Purpose of Assignment For the remainder of the semester you will be developing and completing a research project on a conventions of the source; the ways the author accommodates or appeals to his/her audience. For your secondary sources you will write one good-sized paragraph that explains the source and why you are choosing to use it. What insights are you gaining from it? How does the source connect to your primary source? Checklist: The following components are required: A total of 5 sources. 2 must be primary (popular) sources and 3 secondary (scholarly) sources. The write-up will begin with a list/outline of the 5 sources with 1-3 sentence overviews. That outline will be followed by extended annotations of 3 of those 5 (1 popular and 2 scholarly). The annotation for each source must both summarize and analyze/discuss that source. Those sections should be roughly of equal length. Less successful entries will lean more heavily toward one or the other. [...]

Order Description:

For this assignment, you will be tasked with locating, reading, summarizing, and evaluating sources. You will also meditate on and draft a reflection of your research process. First you will locate 5 decent sources on your topic .You will spend enough time with these sources to write a 1-3 sentence overview of them (This source is about…). You can think about your sources as falling into two general types. The first type would be primary sources. You will need to locate an essay from a popular source like The New York Times, Slate, The Atlantic, or any number of newspapers or magazines. The essay must discuss something related to the intersection of technologies and interpersonal communication like for example essays comment on how technology impacts our social relationships (for better or worse) and sometimes language itself. An acceptable essay must be at least 500 words and have been published later than 2010. The second would be secondary sources. These are writings that will assist you in evaluating the reliability of the claims that are made in your primary source. These sources need to be research-based. In other words, they need to reference data whether qualitative or quantitative. You will find these through the library databases of research articles or an aggregator like Google Scholar. Read each of your three best sources at least one time. For each of your three best sources, you will write a good-sized paragraph (350-500 words) summarizing the source. Then for the primary source, you will write a paragraph that describes what kind of source it is and considers its rhetorical situation—audience, publication venue, author. To write this paragraph, you will need to know what kind of publication the source came from (a news magazine for general readers; a website for a linguistics association; etc.). You might consider questions like: who is the author (and what qualifications does the author have); who published the source; what is the purpose of this publishing venue; what biases or slants might be connected to this purpose; and who is the audience of this publication venue. This paragraph may also consider the conversations in which the source is engaged; the main types of evidence the source employs (research studies, first-hand accounts, etc.); the stylistic and genre conventions of the source; the ways the author accommodates or appeals to his/her audience. For your secondary sources, you will write one good-sized paragraph that explains the source and why you are choosing to use it. What insights are you gaining from it? How does the source connect to your primary source? Checklist: The following components are required: A total of 5 sources. 2 must be primary (popular) sources and 3 secondary (scholarly) sources. The write-up will begin with a list/outline of the 5 sources with 1-3 sentence overviews. That outline will be followed by extended annotations of 3 of those 5 (1 popular and 2 scholarly). The annotation for each source must both summarize and analyze/discuss that source. Those sections should be roughly of equal length. Less successful entries will lean more heavily toward one or the other.
