Presentation Transcript

  1. AC Agenda for October 4, 2012 • Warm Up: Review your analysis of the prompt and be ready to share. • Sharing our thinking on: • Analyzing prompt (Verb order? Audience?) • Review in-text citation for quotations and paraphrases and Works Cited format. • With your partner, continue gathering relevant information in your Do/What Charts to answer the Phineas Gage prompt. • As you read, write down any topics that you discover that really intrigue you as a possible avenue of research.

  2. The Prompt • In a multi-paragraph paper, summarize John Fleishman's main ideas in Phineas Gage: A Gruesome but True Story About Brain Science. Describe the key evidence (or details) the author uses to inform his/her readers. Explain the author's purpose for writing the text and identify the intended audience.

  3. In-text Citation • Direct Quotation: • Fleischman explains, “In 1848, science is still twenty years away from figuring out that infections are the work of the living– that is, ‘biotic’– things” (13). • What do you notice about the punctuation and capitalization?

  4. In-text Citation • Paraphrase: • Gage’s accident occurred twenty years before scientists understood that infections are caused by living organisms (Fleischman 13). • Is this a valid paraphrase of the original? Why or why not?

  5. In-text Citation • Paraphrase: • Gage’s accident occurred twenty years before scientists understood that infections are caused by living organisms (Fleischman 13). • Notice how the language and sentence structure differ significantly from the original.
