This discussion opens April 18th and is due Saturday April 23rd, please try your best to make your initial post by Wednesday April 20th. Posting early ensures you can get the most out of the discussion, including back-and-forths with your classmates and me. If you don’t post until Saturday, make sure to check back Sunday mid-afternoon (Eastern time) for a potential response from me. Make sure you are incorporating and properly citing sources. This means citing the text at least twice as well as a scholarly source you will find on your own, and listing both as references.
Remember that articles in the book are cited as selections from an anthology, since they are not written by Seyler & Brizee themselves. Therefore, you need to credit the writer or writers who did write the article. Here is a sample of what a reference entry will look like for an article from the text this week:
Wilson, R. (2019). It’s time for police officers to start demanding gun laws that could end up saving their own lives. In D.U. Seyler & A. Brizee, Read, reason, write: An argument text and reader (12th ed., pp. 476-480). McGraw-Hill Education. https://ambassadored.vitalsource.com/#/books/9781260798708 (Links to an external site.) (Original work published 2016)
The parenthetical citation would be (Wilson, 2016/2019, para. 5), since Wilson wrote the article. Note that you use both the original publication year and the year Read, Reason, Write was published, and that I used the paragraph instead of the page number for easier reference.
Alternatively, you may look up the original article and reference that correctly, as seen here:
Wilson, R. (2016, February 29). Common sense: It’s time for police officers to start demanding gun laws that could end up saving their own lives. The American Scholar. https://theamericanscholar.org/common-sense/ (Links to an external site.)
I’m not 100% sure all the articles can be found easily online, so I want to give you options. Make sure the citations also correspond properly to these online articles, i.e., (Wilson, 2016, para. 10).
This week’s discussion is all about inspiration. Many of us try to find inspiration within ourselves, but Professor Susan Kruass Whitborne, PhD (2017) wrote in Psychology Today that not only is it alright to seek inspiration from others, but sometimes it’s necessary. She continued, “The ideas and beliefs of others can help guide you to greater heights.” It’s up to you this week to figure out what those great heights can be; the sky’s the limit! This week you’re also encouraged to go back to the beginning and use brainstorming to generate ideas. Brainstorming is a topic generation technique that can also be used to generate ideas in general; you might also want to try freewriting, where you write without stopping, or clustering/mind mapping, where you use visuals to diagram your ideas (Seyler & Brizee, 2019). I can’t wait to see what you’re all inspired to do!
