Week 7 – Collecting References Assignment
Leading into your final Video Argument Presentation, you need to locate some outside sources that will support your argument. Much of academic writing and presenting will require you to go beyond your own opinion to back up your thoughts with research. In Week 5, you started formalizing your own position on the topic you have chosen for the final presentation. Now is the time to find sources to help support it.
For this week’s assignment, you must provide three potential sources for your Video Argument Presentation. We want to use solid sources to back up our opinion as we think through logos and ethos in our presentations. To be ethical, of course we will show or mention these sources in the actual presentation as well.
Be sure to review the Week 7 lecture for more detailed information on locating and documenting your sources.
Three sources, formatted as full references in APA style. Note that these sources should be listed in alphabetical order by the start of each entry . Each reference should include a hanging indent Links to an external site. for the second and each additional line of the source.
A 100-150 word per source blurb that shows you have read the source material and know how you will use the source material in your own presentation. Each annotation should start with objective summary and then provide your own personal response. Here are points to include:
Evidence that you have read the source carefully and critically and that you understand the points it is making. In your own words, start your annotation by summarizing the source’s argument succinctly and fairly, without adding your opinion.
A connection to your own argument. Next, explain how this source supports your side of the issue. How can you use it to establish ethos, pathos, or logos? What do you think about what the source says, and how will it be useful to you for your Video Argument Presentation?
You are not required to submit a title page for this assignment; however, you should use double-spacing and Times New Roman 12-point font.
Be sure to review this week’s lecture for further details on this assignment, advice on getting started, and examples.
