Friday November 23rd, 2012

Annotated bibliographies were due + We did an in-class evaluation!

Also went over a sample essay (it was persuasive not informative)!

Informative Essay

Marking us on how we manage the content and APA

Title Page:
-Must be centre of page with left margin
-Include:

Title
Your Name
Instructors Name
Date of Completion (Not Due Date)
Words: (Insert Word Count - Must be Accurate)

Running Head:
-Right corner
-First three words of your title then page number

Abstract:
-No abstract for this essay!!!!!
-Just incase you ever need to write an abstract in the future:
1)Complete paper + revisions
2)Write short summary (include key words and concepts)
3)Put the title ‘Abstract’
4)Length will depend on the paper

Subheads:
-If you absolutely need them
-Don’t overuse them

Italics:
-Indicate titles of long works (i.e. books, globe and mail, etc)
-Effect (i.e. hypotheticals, shock and surprise)
-Foreign language word or phrase for which there is no English equivalent

In-Text Citations:
Remember -
-Quotations = Needs a citation, because it’s quoted from another source
-Numbers, proportions, quantitative = Needs a citation
-Do not cite every sentence, only when you change sources
-Make sure you cite properly in APA

References:
Remember -
-APA
-Alphabetical order
-All same font and font size
-”Force break” URLs so that they continue on the same line

Exam: Friday December 14th, 2012
->Class vote decided to keep the exam on this day
