3rd Week attendance: What do I do with Folks who've never posted, but who are lurking?
Mood:  quizzical

What do you report for a student who you can tell has logged in, checked it out, but hasn't posted a single (required and optional)response to anything?

My impulse is to say never attended, and report unsatisfactory attendance --
I've also emailed them and tried to light a fire beneath, but to no avail.

It's a wee bit lackluster here in my class--only 7 or so contributing.

Hi All -- If you want to be able to create new posts (instead of just replying to these I put up), spellcheck, and mess around with formatting, sign up for free membership, via tripod.com. This blog will remain Ad-free because I pay 5 bucks a month for my webpages, but you pay nothing. I've also not been deluged with spam from Tripod.

Annotated Bibliography Group 1
Mood:  incredulous
NEW DUE DATE: MONDAY AT NOON
WHY? TO MAKE SURE THIS IS A USEFUL STEP IN THE PROCESS.

Post your annotated bibliography here.
Use the handouts from the library session to guide you. IN general, you should provide:
1. the full citation for each of the 6 sources;
2. a one paragraph strategic summary of the source. This paragraph assesses the source's value to you. What will you do with it? IS it reliable? Authoritative?

We will complete step two (your replies to the group) in class when we look at your outlines.

Group ONE: Post your Bibliography Here
Mood:  caffeinated
A bibliography is a list of your sources that you might use for your research paper. YOU NEED NOT HAVE READ THESE YET--instead, you are collecting POTENTIAL sources you might use later.

Each source should have all that is needed to be a FULL CITATION, so that others can locate your sources.
A FULL CITATION usually includes: author's name, title of article, title of journal/book/newspaper/etc, year published, where and whom published, page numbers.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT TO INCLUDE FOR EACH SOURCE???
HOW DO I CITE A WEBPAGE?
HOW DO I CITE AN INTERVIEW?

ALL ANSWERS REVEALED BY THE ONE AND ONLY DIANNA HACKER (ONE OF YOUR REQUIRED TEXTS. LOOK IN THE MLA APPENDIX TOWARDS THE BACK OF THE BOOK--THERE IS A LIST OF 56 DIFFERENT TYPES OF ENTRIES--THIS IS THE BEST WAY TO PROVIDE THE CORRECT FORMAT.

SO...
STEP ONE:
POST YOUR ALPHABETICAL 6-ITEM BIBLIOGRAPHY HERE.
BY MONDAY AT MIDNIGHT
STEP TWO:
REPLY TO YOUR GROUP MATES, ANSWERING THESE TWO QUESTIONS:
1. ARE THERE ANY POSSIBLE PROBLEMS WITH CREDIBILITY OR AUTHORITY OF ANY SOURCE?
2. ARE THE CITATIONS COMPLETE
BY TUESDAY AT MIDNIGHT
