Class 05: Synthesizing Your Research Notes

Summary: I explained step by step how to present your research, which is also available in the attachment below. Subsequently, you spoke about your research with your pair and got feedback, and then you wrote reflections about your learning. 

Some students asked about how many slides should we prepare for your presentation. It really depends on the issue, but it is useful to have between 12 to 18 slides, including a cover page, an introduction page, a conclusion page, a references page, and a thank you page. 

Homework due on Thursday 12/17/2020 at 10 AM:

1. Please write your five or six questions related to your topic that you are researching and categorize your four pages of notes on THREE pages of A4 paper. Please include your references in the document APA style on the third page. Please provide the details of the author's name, date published, the title, and the publisher (or organization). You can use the guidelines by OWL Purdue in the references section in the chart above. Or the attachments below. 

It is okay to make mistakes on the references. I can help you. Please make sure you note the page or paragraph number and the citation any time you can to keep organized. It makes your writing of the first draft so much easier. Trying to help you!  

You are not researching new articles but categorizing the six reports you have read and taken notes on already. If it is confusing, look at the PowerPoint attached below.
