Think of the most recent writing project you have done that required sources. Based on the definitions found in Research And Other Types Of Source Based Writing (Links to an external site.), was it a research project or a source-based writing project?
If it’s been a while, or you can’t remember, you can use writing you did for non-academic purposes for this discussion.
For the project you used to answer this question,
- explain the assignment
- answer the question: Research or source-based writing?
- give evidence to support your answer. Refer to the text in Research And Other Types Of Source Based Writing (Links to an external site.)to help you find evidence.
Post 1: For your first post, answer the bullet points.
Your post should be at least 150-200 words. It doesn’t have to be grammatically perfect, but should use standard English (no text-speak, please) and normal capitalization rules.
Posts 2 and 3: Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts.
Responses are weighed as heavily as your initial posting, and should be roughly as long (150-200 words) when combined. Responses should indicate you’ve read your classmates’ posts carefully. Include specific details from the post you’re responding to in your reply.
