Today in class we discussed plagiarism and ways to use sources responsible. We then searched for the final source for our synthesis essay and introduced strategies for using regular search engines for research (as opposed to the licensed library databases).
- Focus: Synthesis
- Now that you have found all of the source’s for your synthesis essay, spend a few minutes to compare and contrast the ideas and start to determine what your own position in the argument is. Make sure to include:
- Your own position on the topic before you started research
- The names and main ideas from each of the four sources you read
- How has your position changed as a result of the research?
