Video introduction to this guide:

Suggested step-by-step process

  1. Topic is assigned
  2. Find 3+ quality sources in addition to your textbook (see Research page of this guide for resources and tips). Reach out to Ellen if you have questions or need help with this. 
  3. Create APA Reference entries for each source (see APA page of this guide)
  4. Create a document for notes
  5. Read sources, copy/paste "chunks" of relevant information into notes document for each source (so you remember where it came from!)
  6. Create an outline of your project to be turned in by March 17th/18th
  7. Under each "chunk" of information, use a different color to paraphrase the information in your own words
  8. Have one writer create a draft of the written project by compiling information from notes (with appropriate citations) along with your own topic sentences, transitions, and connections.
    Remember, the goal is to weave ideas together from multiple sources using primarily your own words
  9. Submit draft of the paper to Keri and then meet with her as a group to receive feedback (see Writing page of this guide for links, etc.).
    • Schedule your meeting with Keri by March 21. She currently has availability 3/23, 3/24, 3/25, 3/28, 3/29, 3/30, 3/31, and 4/1... but her schedule fills up fast so it's a good idea to schedule early.
    • Submit your draft to Keri at least 2 days before your meeting so she has time to review it.
    • Then meet with Keri as a group to review feedback and ask questions about suggested revisions.
  10. Revise and finalize essay--submit final copy to instructor by April 4th at 9 PM.
  11. Develop 5-question quiz to coincide with class presentation April 5th. 
  12. Give your presentation of topic during lecture on April 5th. 
  13. Evaluate each team member's participation during class on April 5th.
