This is an EARLY SUBMISSION. You will probably need to scroll down to see all the directions. You must submit by the due date and time to get credit. For this assignment, I want you to go back to the discussion board on the death penalty and look at the posts. Find a post that someone else made that you can work with. I want you to submit what they said here, and I want you to give correct credit for it. Instead of saving it, you will type it directly into a text box in the assignment. Here's how:
- You can copy and paste what they said into your answer, but you MUST put quotation marks around what they said, and you must make sure that you have copied it exactly.
- You MUST identify who wrote the quote by using a lead-in. A lead-in comes BEFORE the quote and recognizes the writer or speaker. You can use this lead-in or change it up a little if you want to: In an online discussion board, _______ ________ wrote:
- The blanks in the lead-in are of course the first and last name of the person who you copied.
- In parentheses at the end of the quote, you must give what is called a parenthetical reference that helps show where the information came from. For this assignment all you have to do is include (Canvas) at the end of your quote.
This is all you have to do to get credit for this assignment, but you have to do it right to get the credit!!
Here is an example with a made-up quote and person: pay close attention to the way it is punctuated at the end:
In an online discussion board, Sue You wrote: "This is my online discussion board post. It says all kinds of really amazing things, which is why I am sure someone else will want to copy my words. I sure hope when they do, they give me credit for writing it" (Canvas).
Notice where the punctuation mark is at the end of the example!
This is a 40 point assignment because it is very important, but you will not get ANY credit unless you do it exactly right! Be careful!
