Citing Readers and Harvard style referencing

Please look on this link for a blog about citing the Readers:

I sent round a sheet on Harvard style referencing

also Cite Them Right

 and other sites

Referencing and plagiarism

the idea is that ideas you get form other people are 'cited' so quotes and 'paraphrasing' - and then put the source in the Bibliography (which includes references and other idea sources you have looked at for the piece of writing/communication you are doing). 


Reviewing as a part of drafting

I just talked to Lizzie who said she had reviewed her Module Handbook - good idea!

April 10th campus session recap

Please see the blogs of Amanda, Emma, Jess D. (M1) and Victoria (M3) Eleanor cam by Skype and Taylor came for a bit (M1).

The Monday campus session 10th April was about thinking through the final writing for each module.
So looked at samples of writing, had a library session, and then talked about our own writing using the oral – speaking – before writing.



Formal writing uses structure a bit more to make 'arguments' so to state you point of view - you make key points (propositions) that you then provide examples and evidence for - drawing to a conclusion based on the discussion. The paragraph is used as a unit of thought - so introductory sentence - key points a concluding sentence - is  a essay style. We write in the first person like a report - so not 3rd person- so we use 'I'.

I sent everyone  the articles we used in the campus session.

The  Cottrell extract talks about the formal structure of writing and the others are examples of briefer articles about acting – and we talked about who the summary style of writing was to develop positions, arguments, and conclusions in a shorter piece of writing.

Michelle gave a brief session about searching – e.g. Using the quotation marks to see the Harvard citation - I have sent everyone her handouts.

I also sent a sheet explaining the Harvard citation method – the university also uses http://www.citethemrightonline.com – you can login using your university IT User name and password.
