Description:

* This short supplementary textbook will help all students who use research in writing, from those writing a short essay with a few sources to those writing a full-scale major research paper. * The easy-to-follow advice will have students writing better research papers right away. * Detailed, example-filled instruction about proper source use and citation gives students all the information they need to avoid unintentional plagiarism. * Focusing on practical and effective strategies for incorporating sources, the book teaches students how to: � add strength to their argument and interest to their writing through the skillful use of sources � select, evaluate, and prepare sources for use � avoid plagiarism through the proper use of quotation, paraphrase, summary, and citation * Activities at the end of each chapter help students internalize their newly acquired skills. An instructor's answer key is included, making it easy to start using this book right away. * The examples in the book are presented in both APA and MLA citation styles, though the book will be a useful resource regardless of the particular style of citation and bibliography you require in your classes. * Helps your students learn how to avoid plagiarism while they discover techniques for writing better research papers. * Updated APA and MLA citation styles and material on research strategies and source selection (Chapter 2), quoting sources effectively (Chapter 4), and grammar and mechanics (Chapter 9).
