Since it was an Assessment topic a number of us seem to be interested in, our upcoming Metagogy session, on Thursday 16th October, will be on quotation and citation. Questions we might consider include:
– what strategies do students use to include sources within their essays at all levels?
– how do students reference material, and what does that tell us about their understanding of research as a key literature practice?
– what approaches are we using to help students improve their use of quotation and citation?
I’ll talk a little about Joe Bizup’s ‘Degrees of Quotation‘ handout as one answer to the last question, and it’d be great to hear what others have done or want to try.
Before we meet, if you can post 1-2 sentences in response to this prompt on the Metagogy blog – a question, observation, or tip you have about student quotation/citation – that’ll make for a rich discussion.
It’d be great if you have handouts and want to post them to the wiki’s Shared Reading (https://wiki.geneseo.edu/
display/engl/Shared+reading) or Shared Links pages (https://wiki.geneseo.edu/ display/engl/Shared+links).
Lastly, various folk have made great comments in response to the Assessment wiki, which you might like to glance at before we meet: https://wiki.geneseo.
