Notetaking Exercise for Problem Analysis
When thinking about finding sources for your problem analysis letter, you may be tempted to scan a source for a quick quote to add to your essay as support. However, it is part of your responsibility as a writer to thoroughly understand a source before you consider adding it to your written work. You should read and understand the context of all source material you consider adding to your written work. The following exercise will make sure you do. Follow the directions below to complete this notetaking exercise. Submit the completed exercise to the dropbox. Then follow the directions in the Discussion section online to post the bibliography of your sources and summaries for each.
quoting, summarizing, and paraphrasing for MLA and follow those guidelines.
In about 150-300 words, summarize one thing you learned by reading your first source.
Paraphrase three specific ideas or facts you learned from your sources. Include ideas from at least two sources.
To paraphrase, begin by copying and pasting the full account of what you read (this should be between a paragraph and a page). Then paraphrase the source by covering the source and restating the main idea in your own word. Be sure to give credit to the author of the original idea by using a signal phrase (according to...) and adding the original author’s last name and a page number at the end of the paraphrase. Also remember that in a paraphrase, whenever you use exact words, you must put them in quotation marks (“ “).
Quote one interesting sentence that is eloquently or interestingly worded or asserted. Introduce the source by naming the author or giving the title of the reading it comes from. Remember to put all exact words in quotation marks (for example, “exact words”). If page numbers are given in the source, insert page numbers in parentheses at the end of the quote and before the period.
Include a works cited page at the end of your summary, quote, and paraphrase activity.
