To extend the knowledge of the pedagogy the writer is interested in.
Choose one of the pedagogies we have read about in Tate, et al.
Click on the Library Resources tab on the left of our course site and read the information there
Identify a research question you would like to pursue that is based on the pedagogy of the chapter you have chosen from Tate, et al.
Skim through the Tables of Contents in both Bad Ideas about Writing and Cross-Talk in Comp Theory: A Reader. The former book contains all-new essays (2017) that attempt to challenge or debunk commonly-held myths or "bad ideas" about writing and how it works. The entries are written to a general audience of parents, teachers, students, and the general public, so they are largely jargon-free and contain a "Further Reading" section at the end that will be incredibly useful for starting your research. The latter book, Cross-Talk in Comp Theory: A Reader, contains a mix of newer essays and some "classic," foundational articles and chapters that in some cases were single-handedly responsible for developing the pedagogical approaches you've read about in Tate, et al. Before launching out on your own research itinerary, spend some serious time reading through both of these texts.
Download the file, "Library Search Handout,"and use it to craft search statements that you can search in Academic Search Premier, ProQuest Central, or JSTOR on our library's web site.
Find 10 sources to work with and report on.
With the search results, begin constructing an annotated bibliography by:
Identifying articles that would be good to know about
Finding the articles by following the links to them on the database you are using (if you see an interesting article with a "Find It" button by it, follow this link; if the article cannot be reached, go ahead and work with the abstract, but plan to rewrite it for your own bibliography)
Open the articles, read the abstract, skim the articles, and write an annotation for each that includes:
A summary of what the article is about
Why it is that it looks as if the article will be useful to what you want to research
Use the citation information from the database to compose a proper MLA citation for the source (use Purdue OWL's MLA informationto help you)
