PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO THIS:

1. Reference, refer to and react to the readings that are assigned each week rather than finding new sources.

2. Incorporate your own reactions, summaries, or paraphrasing so that I can see you interpreted the readings instead of just repeating them exactly as they were written.

3. If students copy and paste passages from something they read, I ask that they incorporate quotes and citations.

4. Please remember to use proper APA citation. Direct quotes require an in text citation of (author’s last name, publication year, page number). Any paraphrased concepts need an in text citation of (author’s last name, publication year).
