R&W: SSR, Abstracts and Annotated Bibs

We first spent the first 25 minutes SSRing. While you were reading, I checked in your APA Format Packets for completion (answer key is here). The APA format quiz is on Friday.

I then assigned your abstract, the second page of your essay; it is a brief paragraph that introduces your paper. The PowerPoint used is located here. Now, some of you may decide that this will become the last thing you write considering that a lot of it requires you have done your research and at least have drafted much of your essay, so for this there is no due date (except the final due date for the entire essay).

Afterwards, you had the rest of the hour to work on your annotated bibliography due to turnitin.com by 11:59 p.m. Thursday, March 2nd. You will have the hour tomorrow to work as well. Here’s a sample set up for you to use.
