Locating Sources on the Internet

Instructional Objectives In this assignment students will: further developed their ability to read critically by reading chapter 24 d and e (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., a paraphrase handout, and various internet sources, refine strategies of academic research, including searching the internet using two different strategies and compiling a list of sources (working bibliography), and refine paraphrasing skills by writing 2 paraphrases. Vocabulary to Know Summary: taking someone else's words, ideas, or thoughts and putting the main point(s) (who, what, when, where, why, and how) into your own words, but giving credit to the original author. A summary is usually a portion of the original text length since it is covering just the basics of the original. Paraphrase: taking someone else's words, ideas, or thoughts main point-for-main point into your own words, but giving credit to the original author. A paraphrase is usually about the same length as the original since it is covering all the same information. Summary vs. Paraphrasesneed to know.jpg A summary is the main ideas within an article--the basics: who, what, when, where, why, how, etc. Summaries often are over a large piece of source information such as a chapter, article, or book. A paraphrase is main point-by-main point of a source, usually a passage or excerpt (from a paragraph to a few paragraphs in length). Thus, a paraphrase will be more dense with knowledge than that of a summary. In other words, a paraphrase has more specific information than a summary. Regardless, paraphrases of a solid passage within a document, cannot be done well in one sentence; and, both need to have a in-text ciation either internally with written reference of the author/title or parenthetical at the end of the summary or paraphrase. Writing Paraphrases Read the webpage: Purdue OWL Paraphrase Page (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. Paraphrasing a source involves restating the ideas and information from a passage in your own words. When you paraphrase, you need to use different words and sentence structures to ensure that your paraphrase isn’t too close to the original passage. To paraphrase a passage, you should follow the steps as stated on the Purdue OWL website: Owl Purdue Handout. (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. or the Bedford Research Room steps. (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. WARNING: Do NOT start at the top of the document and work your way down when paraphrasing as this can cause plagiarism because it will read too similar to the original. Instead read through the passage, put the passage away, start at the bottom of the passage and move from there. This excercise forces you to put the information in your own words. Finally, do not forget to cite your paraphrase in the MLA format. Assignment 3 Locating Sources on the Internet--3 parts Lesson on Searching the Web Part I. Conduct an initial Internet Search. Mega Search Engines are the more popular search engines such as Yahoo, Google, etc. You are looking for websites that could hold great potential sources for your paper. You are not limited to the below directories, but make sure you follow the guidelines below: In About.com (http://www.about.com/#!/browse-categories/ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.), search by topic (topics you would want to research) and look for pages that are described as "101" or "guides" or a "directory" for example, you could search for "research 101" or "research guide" or "research directory" to learn the basics to researching. About.com is written by "Guides" who, themselves, often are experts in the sections they manage. Sometimes they write excellent overviews of a topic. Google Scholar (https://scholar.google.com/ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.), search by topic. Since your research is a problem/solution type paper, you may want to use problem or solution with the topic to help narrow your general search. Microsoft Academic Search (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.:Microsoft’s academic search engine offers access to more than 38 million different publications, with features including maps, graphing, trends, and paths that show how authors are connected. Directions: Search one of these popular subject-directory search tools listed above. Locate a web page that deals with your approved research topic. Record the name of the search engine used. Search by clicking your way through the subject directory. Record the URL (web address: http://) for the page you found on your paper. Cut & Paste one paragraph (3-4 sentences) of information from any part of the web page on to your paper. Label it Original. Paraphrase the chosen information. Type your paraphrase under the original and label it Paraphrase. Add this webpage citation and a brief summary to your Bibme (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. bibliographer (working bibliography). Part II. Conduct a Second Internet Search. In a meta-search engine, you submit keywords in its search box, and it transmits your search simultaneously to several individual search engines and their databases of web pages. Within a few seconds, you get back results from all the search engines queried. Meta-search engines do not own a database of Web pages; they send your search terms to the databases maintained by search engine companies. Choose one of the meta-search engines from the list: Meta-search Engines: Yippy! – http://.yippy.com/ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. Yippy is a metasearch engine: it queries multiple search engines and combines the results to be displayed as a group, or cloud, on one screen. Dogpile – http://dogpile.com/ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. Powered by Metasearch technology, Dogpile returns all the best results from leading search engines including Google, Yahoo!, Bing and Ask, so you find what you’re looking for faster. SurfWax – http://surfwax.com/ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.A better than average set of search engines. Can mix with educational, US Government tools, and news sources, or many other categories. MetaCrawler – http://www.metacrawler.com/ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. MetaCrawler.com utilizes metasearch technology to compile results from many of the Web's major search properties, delivering more relevant and comprehensive results every time you search. Do not use Yahoo!, Google or Bing! for this assignment. We are trying new things. Directions: Search one of these popular text-directory meta-search tools. Type in your subject/topic words in the space provided. Locate a web page that deals with your research topic. Record the name of the search engine used. Record the URL (address: http://) for the page. Cut & Paste one paragraph (3-4 sentences) of information from any part of the web page on to your paper. Label it Original. Paraphrase the chosen information. Type it under the original and label it Paraphrase. Add this webpage citation and a summary to your Bibme (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. bibliographer (working bibliography). Part III. Working Bibliography: Record all bibliography information available from both websites, including the URL, in your Bibme (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. project using the MLA style of documentation. You will need an author, website name, date, URL and date of access. If you can't find these items, consider whether you should even use a site with no such information. Review evaluating sources information. Cut & paste a copy of your working bibliography into this assignment. Label it Working Bibliography, not Works Cited. NOTE: a Working Bibliography is not the same as a Annotated Bibliography. A Working Bibliography is all of the sources you are working with and does not include a summary--just citation information. For this assignment you should have 4--two from assignment 1 and two from this assignment.
