I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Day 67, Sem. 1
Today in class we reviewed the rules and requirements for a Works Cited page of a research paper and created the Works Cited in each groups' Google Document using the Google Add-on that collaborates with the EasyBib Bibliography Creator. We only used the EasyBib Add-on for our trickster tale books and website, and for the Joseph Campbell video for the informational sources. The artificial intelligence behind EasyBib does not generate good results for the other four informational sources students used, so I reviewed with them how to create a Works Cited entry in MLA style (version 8.0). The "cheat sheet" for this process is on Canvas and in the student's Writer's Reference Guide (p. 7). After all the groups had created a Works Cited page for all literary and informational sources used in the paper, we also reviewed the rules for parenthetical documentation. Tonight's homework is to add CORRECT parenthetical documentation to the body paragraphs in the shared document. We will check all documentation tomorrow in class to make sure everyone is doing it right.
For the last 30 minutes of class, we watched the second part of Life Is Beautiful and completed a Venn diagram of similarities and differences of the Jewish experience before and during the concentration camp in Night and the movie.
Homework: Add parenthetical documentation for all C sentences in the body paragraphs of the research paper.
