Learning Outcome

Most of our projects this semester will ask you to read different texts and then integrate these sources into your own writing. This can be challenging. How should you include a quotation in your writing? What is the best way to transition from your ideas to those another? What method of referencing your sources makes the most sense for the genre in which you are writing?

This activity is meant to help you think through how can use sources effectively in your own writing. You’ll apply these skills, starting with your Unit 1 project.
