ICR Class 07: Cycle 3 reflection and self-evaluation/assessment; student interests and goal- setting for Cycle 4; choice of issue -11/07/2022
Summary of Class 08: We had three lovely and informative presentations.
Students who are presenting on 11/14, please send me your presentation draft by Thursday so that I can check your presentation and you can also do the Cycle 4 homework.
Please let me know if you would like to do the same format of referencing APA or would you like to learn a new style of referencing, which is MLA for your new cycle 4 research.
Homework is due on 11/11/2022, by 3 PM. Please upload the pictures of your notes in your Shared Google file under the section “ICR Class 07 Cycle 4 sharing research notes 2: Basic Information/Cases.”
Please, research the SAME research issue using 2 Internet, book, newspaper, or journal articles about a topic you are passionate about discussing. The theme should be on what is the Basic Information and what are the Cases of Your Issues.
Then take one to two pages of notes for each reading or viewing using the keywords on the pages. Remember to write in your notes and on the Google Doc. the author’s name(s), the date, and page or paragraph numbers if you use direct quotations. These actions will help you not copy/paste when you are note-taking and summarize with your own words or use quotation marks using the authors’ exciting thoughts, data, and vocabulary.
Again, if you read this, please remember to make notes on where you got your work, including the author’s name, date published, publication, URL, and which section or paragraph number you go your information from in your Google Doc.
It is also helpful to know where you got your information to discuss with your classmates in the breakout rooms and on your presentation day.
Moreover, here is are the IRD links and docs for your homework below for your convenience:
