Important guidelines:
Before you start to summarize the source and discuss it, you need to clearly name the source by full title and full name of the author and write a topic sentence that organizes your summary paragraphs. Example: In her research essay on “Kate Chopin’s View on Death and Freedom in ‘The Story of an Hour,'” Xuemei Wan uses philosophical concepts about mortality and liberty to interpret the role of death in Chopin’s short story. (Do not just copy or plagiarize my example. Use it as a guide to help you to write your own topic sentence. Note: essay titles are put in quotation marks. If a quote appears inside a quote, then use single quotation marks inside the double quotation marks: “Kate Chopin’s View on Death and Freedom in ‘The Story of an Hour.'” Ending punctuation goes inside the closing quotation marks.)
Write complete sentences and paragraphs. Do NOT just list terms or write fragmented notes. Keep in mind that this is an advanced college English class, so use proper grammar, spelling, capitalization, and punctuation. For help with grammar, see: https://www.grammarly.com/blog/category/handbook/
Remember to properly refer to the author by last name when referencing the source. When first mentioned, write the full name of an author; thereafter, write the last name. Use phrases like, “According to Wan” and “Wan observes.” See: https://tinyurl.com/y69ps8tr
Provide proper in-text parenthetical citations per MLA guidelines for all quoted and paraphrased information from the textbook (Do NOT plagiarize.) See MLA in-text guidelines: https://tinyurl.com/y673xs3c Make sure you credit Wan for her references to other sources; otherwise, it can look like you are taking credit for her work. Example: Wan quotes E. M. Forster who wrote on the universal irony of birth and death in literature: “death is coming even as birth has come” (qtd. in Wan 167). Note: When referring to sources quoted by the author and not by you, use proper parenthetical citation (qtd. in last name of author and page number); “qtd” stands for quoted. Do not be too general or short. Be sure to support your answers with evidence and details from the source. Pretend you are explaining the source to someone who has not read it to be sure you include enough details so that someone who has not read the source understands what you are talking about. Write objectively and analytically. See tips for writing about literature: https://tinyurl.com/uschs47b Be sure to summarize and explain the source in your own words and be careful not to rely too heavily on quoting the source.
