In class we mostly covered the assignment sheet for our Room For Debate essay and discussed the source material and citations. We didn’t touch base on logical fallacies. We learned about parenthethtical citations. (Mangini, 2015), quoting “direct quotes”, [adding words], and we learned about eclipses […], and how to quote other’s words that has mistake in it [sic]. Paraphrasing is the act of writing a short work in your own words, while summarizing is the act of phrasing a long work in your own words.
To be honest, I didn’t follow my usual routine of writing my reflection right after class. I got home and my wife was at the hospital. My niece delivered a beautiful baby girl. The night after class ISIS attacked Paris. I worked with Kylie and Courtney on our essay. I think we are a pretty good team.
