Today we discussed comma rules five through eight, and students completed this portion of the comma packet. Please get the answers from a student in class tomorrow since the quiz is Thursday. After that, we discussed summarizing vs. paraphrasing for the essay. Basically, your paper should be mostly in your own words with just a few direct quotes along the way. What you write should sound like you and should not resemble the original source in terms of the order it's written or the vocabulary.
HOMEWORK: Tomorrow I will check to see if you've taken notes (copied/pasted) from two sources. You don't have to be finished, but you should have several notes from each source. Show them to me in one of these ways: Share electronically via SharePoint; show me on your phone; print out a hard copy to show me; or handwrite your notes.
