Friday, Jan. 27th

Now that we have done some peer editing, we worked on revising the I.R.R. today.  Be sure to check the ORIGINALITY REPORT on turnitin.com and verify that everything has been cited accurately according to the MLA FORMAT.

You will have most of Tuesday’s class to finish polishing your I.R.R., but at the end of class, you will have to hit the SUBMIT FINAL button.  I would also like you to print off a copy of your I.R.R. (single sided) and bring it to class on Thursday.

Thursday, Jan. 5th

We went over the first attempt at the E.O.C. Part A, noting, in particular, the importance of R.A.V.E.N. and C.R.A.A.P. in determining the credibility and relevance of sources.  To make sure this happens in your I.R.R. for Task 1, ANNOTATE your bibliography by indicating the degree of credibility of each of your sources using R.A.V.E.N. and C.R.A.A.P..  I will be checking your ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY at the end of next week.  We will also be trying PART A of the exam next week.  Time management seems to be an issue.  Let’s work on that.
