ENGL 2307 11 February 2014
Informal Writings • None due this week. • In future: • Make sure you use textual support (quotes are good). • Your focus should be on the analysis more than the summary. • A works cited page is REQUIRED. • Post-midterm paper—you can gain a total of two extra credit points going to the UWC with your IWs
The Turn of the Screw (again) • Setting: Page 7, beginning “I remember as a thoroughly pleasant impression…” • Continues “The large impressive room, one of the best in the house” • Children: Page 7 and Page 13 • Allusion: Page 17 “Was there a secret at Bly…” • State of mind: • Pg. 30 • Pg. 33—”On leaving her…” and “It was a pity I should have had…” • Pg. 34—”Yet I had not indulged…” • Pg. 37—”They were at this period…” • Pg. 51
Research • Primary and secondary sources • You will use both in your papers. • What is the difference? • Where do we find these sources?
Finding Sources in the Library • Library.ttu.edu • Don’t use the OneSearch box • Straight to library catalogue • Unlike google, you want short phrases • You can use Boolean operators (and, or, not) • Write down the title and the call number • Check the shelves around that book for other sources
Finding Sources online • The library is the first stop • Library.ttu.edu • Personal librarian for English • You could also go to the database search • Databases • MLA Bibliography • JSTOR • Project MUSE • Academic Search Complete (general, but I still sometimes use it)
Databases continued • Boolean searches • Look for peer reviewed articles • DO NOT LIMIT BY FULL TEXT • ILLIAD is our friend (most of the time)
ILLIAD • From the database • From the library site • Fill in as much information as possible • More likely to get what you asked for • More likely to get it quickly
Other Online Sources • Be careful/discerning • Think critically • Use the CRAAP test
For Thursday • Read and take notes about “James: Twists of the Governess” • Find at least two possible sources for your paper • Have access to them during class—either in hard copy or via laptop/tablet, etc. • Review the sample paper from Chapter 11
Cell Phone Quiz • Explain primary and secondary sources. Give an example of each. • Where can you find possible sources on the web? • How do you decide whether a website is an appropriate source or not?
