Simple Tips to Help Avoid Plagiarism:

· Make a list of all sources as you use them with all the bibliographic info especially the author and date!

· Clearly indicate which ideas and phrases come from each source and exactly where they begin and end.

· Highlight, quote or indent them and keep your ideas, and each source idea separate as you write to cite them easily.

· Make sure you have documented all sources (quotes or paraphrases) correctly and listed them as references.

Identifying Plagiarism: Are these 3 examples plagiarized? – Yes or No? Why OR Why Not?

#1 Source A problem with getting coherent thinking on the risk of terrorism is that reporters and politicians find extreme and alarmist possibilities so much more appealing than discussions of broader context, much less of statistical reality. That is, although hysteria and alarmism rarely make much sense, politicians and the media are often naturally drawn to them. Mueller, J. (2009) #1 Student: A problem in getting coherent thinking on the risk of terrorism is that politicians find extreme and alarmist possibilities so much more appealing than discussions of broader context, much less of statistical reality. Hysteria and alarmism rarely make much sense but politicians and the media are drawn to them.
#2 Source: By its very nature, domestic and homeland security intelligence is intrusive and risks infringing on civil liberties. Dahl, E. (2011) #2 Student: Former DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff admits that by its very nature, domestic and homeland security intelligence work is intrusive (Dahl, 2011).
#3 Source: In struggling to answer the seemingly simple question of who is in charge of fusion centers at a recent congressional hearing, a Department of Homeland Security official could only offer that ‘fusion centers are in charge of fusion centers.’ One analyst reportedly described his fusion center as the “wild west,” where officials were free to “use a variety of technologies before ‘politics’ catches up and limits options. (ACLU, 2013) #3 Student: In a recent Congressional hearing however, one DHS official described the fusion center as the ‘wild west,’ where officials are free to use a variety of technologies before politics catches up and limits the options (ACLU, 2013).

Task #2: Article Review Thesis & Summary Worksheet

The purpose of this task is to determine which evaluative criteria you will be utilizing and to prepare for the Article Review assignment. The worksheet will be divided into two parts – Thesis and summary. Please answer the following questions.

Part 1: Evaluative Thesis

1. Which article have you chosen to use for your Article Review assignment? Remember that it needs to be at least 5 pages long and have a credibility rating of 4 or higher. Please write the reference for the article in proper APA format:

1. Bearing in mind the 3 Es (Education, Experience, and Expertise), please list the credentials of the author.

1. From the credentials, do you feel the author may have any bias towards a certain topic or a group? Why or why not?

1. What is the main argument/thesis of the article (What is the author trying to prove)?

1. From what perspective(s) do you think the author is trying to prove this point?

1. Do you believe this article is effective (+) or Ineffective (-) ? Please highlight one.

1. Please list two evaluative criteria supporting your overall evaluation.

1) ______ : Why do you think so?

2) _______: Why do you think so?

1. Please list one criterion that goes against your overall evaluation:

1) _______: Why do you think so?

Finally, based on the above information, try writing the thesis statement for your article review here, following this formula:

Thesis Pattern:

POSITIVE (+) evaluation NEGATIVE (-) evaluation
Although (-) evaluative criterion #1, [Author’s last name (year)] writes an effective article because (+) evaluative criteria #2 and (+) evaluative criteria #3. Although (+) evaluative criterion #1, [Author’s last name (year)] writes an ineffective article because (-) evaluative criteria #2 and (-) evaluative criteria #3.

Part 2: Summary

Explain how the author unfolds the main argument using effective time-transition words and

reporting verbs: begins, continues, asserts, explains, illustrates, suggests, concludes, compares, contrasts, adds to, expands…

Example Pattern:

Author’s last name (year) states/explains/illustrates … [general main argument] To start/ At first, Rapaport begins/refers that …. Then, the author asserts/elaborates/expands that …. After that, Rapaport continues/describes/adds that … In the end/Finally, the author suggests/concludes ….

Based on the above information, please write a summary for your article review here. (150 words)

Task #3: Article Review Evaluative Paragraph Worksheet

The purpose of this task is to write one evaluative paragraph for your article review by following the general paragraph pattern.

Assertion State what the paragraph will discuss/prove with the main THESIS key word (overall evaluation) and an ASSERTION key word (criteria + evaluation of criteria) from the roadmap. e.g. The article is ineffective because of the complex writing style through which the author writes the article
Explanation (one sentence) Explain the evaluation of the criteria (assertion key word) in more detail. e.g. More specifically(=In more detail), the author chooses to use a series of jargons that do not have a significant bearing on the overall main argument.
Evidence 1 More general evidence below; make sure to introduce with accurate context to the criteria (i.e. organization/evidence/style) and use some “quotation” to prove close reading of the article. e.g. For instance, when the author describes the scene of a child being separated from her mother in order to be taken to her workplace, the author states, “The mise-en-scene of this scene is heartbreaking.” (Smith, 2017, p.00)
Discussion 1 Explain how the evidence proves the evaluation in your own words. Remember to use specific evaluative language/ focus on proving the evaluations of the criteria, and how the author was successful/unsuccessful in using the criteria. e.g. Clearly, the author is using the phrase “mise-en-scene” in order to describe the heartbreaking scene of the separation between the mother and the child, but the words do not bring any new meaning or introduce any new idea into the argument. The phrase “mise-en-scene” is used to describe a particular scene from a film, thereby not being appropriate for this type of article (citation). The writing style of the article takes away from the description of the scene.
Evidence 2 Use another quote or direct reference to the book/article. Make sure to introduce with accurate context to the criteria. Use some “quotation” to prove close reading of the article. e.g. In addition, Moreover, Not only this) + (The article also states/reports/highlights)
Discussion 2 Explain the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of the evidence as it is related to the chosen criteria and its evaluation. Use specific evaluative language to justify your evaluation. e.g. Clearly (=For this reason, With this in mind), This suggests/reveals/means/highlights that,
Connection sentence Using the thesis key word (overall evaluation) and the assertion key word (criteria + evaluation of the criteria) (same key words from the assertion), summarize how the paragraph proved the assertion/thesis e.g. Therefore(=Thus/Hence),

Please complete your body paragraph in the table below.
