--Pick out FOUR conclusions (i.e. arguments) that you can make about what you read, exactly like the man did in the video about the Hurricane Sandy article. In other words, based on what you read in the article, what are three conclusions you came to? Write each in a separate, coherent, grammatically-correct sentence.
--Next, students will need to pick out the words/phrases/sentences that lead she/he to each particular conclusion, otherwise called "providing textual evidence." This is done by either directly quote or paraphrasing the textual evidence, as well as incluing a parenthetical citation. Please consult "Quoting, Paraphrasing, and Summarizing" handout in the "1301 Refresher" file (found in Week Two Learning Module) and/or the LB Brief on how to do direct quotes, paraphrases, and parenthetical citations in MLA.
--Using the information read about in the "Introducing Textual Evidence" and "Supporting Conclusions with Evidence" links, insert an introductory phrase in front of the quoted or paraphrased material.
--VOILA! Each student should now have four separate clearly-written arguments/conclusions, each supported by proper MLA formatted textual evidence.
--This Assignment is worth 20 points and is due as text document IN PROPER MLA FORMAT (consult LB Brief if you don't know what this entails) via the "Submission" link below by 5 pm Sunday 2/22/15.
