Update your Partial Draft 1 by incorporating at least two more sources (and remember to add them to your research log as well). The draft should have at least six sources and a works cited page.
As you work on your draft, ask yourself the following questions to help you see how you’re incorporating and citing your sources. Refer back to the readings above for guidelines.
- Skim through your most recent draft and highlight or underline any specific information that you’ve incorporated from your sources via summary, paraphrase, or direct quote (remember that literature reviews rely mainly on summary and paraphrase and less frequently on direct quotes).
- Chapter 15 outlines the reasons why you might choose to quote a source rather than paraphrase or summarize. For each piece of information that you’ve just highlighted or underlined, what was your rationale for incorporating it the way you did? For example, why did you put the information in your own words rather than quote it? You should be able to explain your choice for each piece of information.
- Finally, check your in-text citations. Ask yourself if a reader would be able to tell which source each piece of highlighted or underlined information comes from. For example, are you introducing the source with a phrase such as “According to,” and are you including the parenthetical in-text citation as necessary?
