How   to handle citations and quotations

Informal or formal   citations are expected throughout your discussion posts. Informal citations   just let us know where you found the information that influenced your   thoughts — apa formatting is not required in discussion posts (however,   strict apa formatting IS required in your papers).  But don’t just copy   and paste a quotation and plop it into your work thinking it will show   that you’ve read the material. Just because you quote something doesn’t mean   you understand it. To show that you understand what you’ve read, paraphrase   and summarize. Quotations should be used sparingly — when something has been   said that is particularly enlightening or expressed in a particularly   eloquent way or when it is a compelling argument that supports or   refutes your own point of view. Otherwise, paraphrase or summarize, and then   tell where you got your idea(s) in formal or informal citations. Generally   speaking, you do not need to put definitions in quotations. If you need to   define a term (and this isn’t always necessary), tell why you need to define   it, then paraphrase or summarize a definition you want to use to support your   case, and then cite the source.  Don’t simply put the Northouse   reference information at the bottom of all your posts. Show where in   your post the author influenced what you are saying. No general   reference at the bottom of your post is required. If you do decide to use a   direct quotation, place it in context. You are the one making the points, not   an outside resource, and the citation is there to support the points you are   making. So frame each direct quote with context. Tell why this quotation is   there, its significance to the topic, how it will enlighten the reader, what   you want the reader to get from it.  Just plopping a quote into your   work without context and without summarizing or paraphrasing it doesn’t show   a familiarity with the material. It doesn’t show that you know what you are   talking about necessarily. It shows that you know how to copy and   paste.  Make quotations count! Use them sparingly for effect and for   forceful support of your argument.

An   important question you should know about

An important   question I ask myself when grading discussion posts is . .  Could this   person have written these posts without reading the course material? If the   answer is yes, your score will not be as high as it could have been if you   had been making connections to what you learned from the course material and   making them relevant to the discussion topic. Review my announcement on how   casual conversations differ from classroom discussions

Please   write in paragraphs

Please write your   discussion posts in paragraphs, with one topic per paragraph. A strong   paragraph has an introductory topic sentence and ends with a sentence that   transitions to the next topic/paragraph. This makes long discussion posts   easier to read. Part of your writing score will depend on your ability to   write in paragraphs.
