Week 5 Discussion
This week's lesson presented a model of an annotated bibliography. Review the model, focusing on the components of the entry:
Research a new source for your Pro-Con Position Paper (hopefully one that represents your opposition's point). Then, draft 1 reference entry and 2 paragraphs for this new source.
Make sure to cite your source in APA format.
Follow-Up Post Instructions.
Respond to at least two peers or one peer and the instructor. For peer feedback this week, please review the Guidelines for Evaluating Sources in our textbook (Seyler & Brizee, 2018, pp. 281-282). Consider the following prompts as you provide feedback to your peers:
What is the purpose of the text?
Can you locate the author's credentials?
Estimate the credibility of the text.
Is this source an appropriate level for this degree of academic writing?
Is the source up-to-date?
Do you agree with how your peer intends to apply the source?
Can you think of any other applications?
Do you notice any inaccuracies in the APA formatting?
Further the dialogue by providing more information and clarification.

Follow-Up Post Instructions
Respond to at least two peers or one peer and the instructor. For this week's peer response, let's do a bit or role-playing. Choose a peer and pretend you are a professor who has just discovered a potential academic integrity violation. (This is, of course, not the case, but it is a fun experiment none-the-less!).
Review the Academic Integrity section (pp. 35-38) of Chamberlain University Student Handbook. Select a violation from the Violations of Academic Integrity section. Write a short message to the student explaining how the violation occurred, the potential solution, and/or punishment.
