Random Notes from Random Post-it Notes

TAG Multi-Genre Research

The following were notes I took while I read and assessed the students note cards. This was after the initial research phase but before they began writing their papers.
  • Research is looking decent, but sometimes it is too basic to support a strong thesis.
  • Next time, I should require the citation on the source cards, most kids did it without being directed to.
  • Next time I would like to switch to a PP note method (Chris K.) but how to prevent copying/pasting/plagairism?!?!?
  • It would have been helpful while reading note cards to have their proposal (duh).
  • Should we have written the thesis statement before the research (hindsight = yes = duh!).
