Students must submit at least 2-4 single-spaced pages answering these questions in all 3 Parts.

 Part 1: Summary

Answer the following questions (found at the end of the chapter)

  1. What writing assignments have you received from your various professors? How many of them involve working with sources? What kinds of sources do your professors ask you to use?
  2. What difficulties have you encountered in finding good sources for writing assignments? How have you overcome those difficulties?
  3. How helpful is the “recipe analysis” technique for understanding how to go about your assignments? What other analysis techniques have you used to understand writing assignments?
  4. The metaphors in this dialogue explain some aspects of using sources, but not others. What other metaphors can you think of for working with sources? How would those other metaphors add to an understanding of writing with sources?

 Part 2: Reflection

  1. What did you find most interesting about the reading? 

Part 3: Scavenger Hunt

  1. After completing the reading, go on Mercy’s Library page and find one source (book, article or documentary from any Mercy database) which addresses the topic/argument from the reading. In other words, now that you’ve completed the reading, if asked to do more research on the topic, where would you start? Find a source through the Mercy Library page which also talks about the topic presented in the reading.

While you do not have to read that source, you must

A)   write down the source in proper MLA, APA or Chicago format and

B)   copy and paste a screen capture into your homework submission of the browser window with the source (see example below). Every computer has a different way to take a screen capture, follow your PC or Mac’s OS’s instructions found in your help menu.

C) write two to three sentences about what this source is and how it relates to the reading.

 Sample screen capture of a source found in a Mercy Library database:
