Use specific supporting details from the book and at least two from outside sources.Go to the Miami Dade Databases (not Google) for your sources. The following are not acceptable sources: Class Lecture Notes Textbooks Study Guides (SparkNotes, Cliff Notes, BookRags etc.) Wikipedia/ Encyclopedias Dictionaries Popular Magazines (People, Glamour etc.) Popular information websites such as about.com or Ask.com Personal Blogs Why not? Because for one, they are not original sources. Encyclopedias and textbooks are useful to provide an overview or introduction to a topic for complete beginners. These are meant to get you started on a subject. They are not research documents.Wikipedia: Many instructors forbid reference to Wikipedia at all. Some professors do allow its use, and the use of encyclopedias in general, but don't do it. It's generally reliable for checking routine facts and extremely specialized topics, but Wikipedia, actually all encyclopedias suffer from the problem that they are not a primary sources. Wikipedia has the added problem that although it is working on correcting errors, it still has weak quality control. It is susceptible to deliberate sabotage, vandalism, even censorship. So don't use it if you're not familiar enough with the subject matter to spot biases or errors, and don't cite it in any academic paper at all. Required Procedures: Read Disgrace by J. M. Coetzee in its entirety before beginning your paper. Take notes as you read. Mark some interesting passages and save necessary source information (such as page numbers) for your in-text documentation and your Works Cited list. Think about the topic and approach you chose located in the Topics and Approaches page. Do not simply repeat or summarize the story. Write your well-constructed thesis, topic sentences, supporting details roughly before beginning. Do some research. It's important to know a bit about apartheid and post-apartheid South Africa before you begin the paper. Take notes and save necessary source information for your Works Cited list. Use at least two outside sources from scholarly sites or journals. Look at sample papers to refresh your memory concerning the format in Rules for Writers, 8th edition. Write a minimum 850-word (or more if necessary) for a good literary essay. Use formal language and the third person, avoiding personal anecdotes and eliminating all references to yourself at all (I believe, in my opinion, etc). Revise, edit, and proofread, proofread, proofread. It's easy to make mistakes. Correct them before you submit your paper.You may also use any of the writing labs and centers in any MDC campus, where a tutor might help you. There are some sites that help you catch grammar errors, such as GrammarRater, but remember, they're not human and don't read for content, so they miss things (often). Remember: While you assemble your sources, keep your handbook open (or your online source handy). There are too many details to remember everything. Introduction: What's MLA style, and why do we use it? It is the style used mainly in the Humanities field. By using it, you avoid plagiarism and you become credible as a scholarly writer. Other fields have other documentation styles, so you might have to change styles depending on the field of study in which you write. Later in this course, you'll learn another format, so do not bother to memorize the details. Keep your handbook open or online handbook accessible as you write your papers. MLA is the preferred style for literary essays. What is meant by cross-referencing? That means all the sources used for research are included in two parts: In-text citations and signal phrases: In-text citations (sometimes known as parenthetical citations) are placed in parentheses within the text itself. Whenever you quote or paraphrase an author, use in-text citations. Example: the author's name and page number where the information was from in parentheses: (Coetzee ##). Signal phrases are introductory words, naming the author of the source, and sometimes giving some extra information. Example: J. M. Coetzee in his novel, Disgrace writes that dogs behave "...as if they too feel the disgrace of dying..." (##). List of sources used: The Works Cited page: Every journal article, book, government publication, etc. cited in your essay will be listed in a limited bibliographical list titled Works Cited. The works cited page will contain all the information necessary about the sources used (who wrote it, where and when it was published, etc.). Only sources actually cited in the text are listed in the Works Cited page. Secondary sources: When writing about literature, you will write your own ideas about a literary work. However, secondary sources are often required, such as books and articles in which experts discuss some aspect of the literary text or other material related to your topic. Your handbook, Rules for Writers is your most useful tool, with a tab section (pages 431-525) on MLA style and all the details you need to write your paper. Keep it opened (or your online source handy) while you work. Click on this folder, MLA Resources to find sample papers, a YouTube video and other helpful tools to get you started using MLA style. It should be 5 paragraphs, 850 words or more , MLA style, size 12, 3 inside sources and 3 outside sources from the miami dade college databasses . You'll need my student ID in order to do that . Don't use google!!!!! Later on, after you choose your thesis, you will research information to support your thesis (for the body of the essay). You will need to go to a library database (you have read in the past module "How to Access Miami Dade Databases") or a valid search site, such as Google Scholar to find articles about Disgrace, post-apartheid South Africa, etc. Please use information from TWO articles in your paper, and plan on using THREE short quotes from the novel to support your opinion and analysis. The paper should have 5 paragraphs minimum. Biographical material is important as it influences the author’s writing but should not be the focus of your paper. Give credit to any biographical source material. Wikipedia is not considered an academic source, though it is useful for background, general information. Wikipedia does not count toward the two articles required.
