Organizational Patterns in Argument (graded) Let’s look at samples of researchbased writing: “Nervous Nellies” on p. 328; “From Degrading to DeGrading” on p. 254; and “How Many Zombies Do You Know?” on p. 290. Review each selection and include in your post responses to these questions. What do you notice about how each is organized and presented? What kinds of appeals to the audience does each author use? How are sources used in text? Reading Strategy Note: Unlike summary and paraphrase, which require close reading, for this discussion use the reading strategy of skimming. Carefully read the introductory paragraph, but then move quickly, reading only the topic sentence of each paragraph. The goal is to compare and contrast the differences in the presentation of the information in the document. Skim and review until you have an impression you can share in the discussion. This section lists options that can be used to view responses.

You can put the info in the sentence itself. Example: According to Jones, 2013, there are many ways to do it. 2. You can put part of the info in the sentence, and the other part in parentheses. Example: According to Jones, there are many ways to do it (2013). 3. You can put the entire citation in parentheses. Example: There are many ways to do it (Jones, 2013). Which method do these authors use most? RE: Michael Shields 2/3/2014 4:24:00 PM All: Authors and many other writers mainly use the first example to cite. It is easier to follow and, in my opinion, a better accreditation to the source. Michael: Professor Wright 2/3/2014 6:20:32 PM I would disagree. I think it disrupts the flow of the sentence. It's okay occasionally, but the majority of the citations should be in parentheses. RE: Anthony Thornberry 2/5/2014 7:18:33 PM Michael: Parenthetical citation is frowned upon in most of the writing courses I have ever taken. While the method can be useful, my last college comp class emphasized that as a writer I should not directly quote unless it is unavoidable and should paraphrase more often. RE: Christopher Michael: 2/5/2014 9:25:45 PM Baumgardner I have to agree with the Professor. I like parenthetical citation because I believe the paper can be written in a more natural flowing style. Then, when you need to check the references later to a specific idea presented in the paper you can go back and quickly check the citation. I find that after a while I don't even really read the citations
