Here’s what you’ll need to do: Review the two sample student papers here: WA#1-

Here’s what you’ll need to do:
Review the two sample student papers here:
WA#1-Sample Language Annotated Bibliography
WA#2-Sample Language Six Source Essay
Compare the two documents.
Review the webpage, Transitions from Purdue OWL
Answer the following prompts and post your responses.
After reading the two articles and the information on transitions, answer the following questions:
(1) How has the writer altered, or changed, the material from the Annotated Bibliography to the Six-Source Essay? (Answer in 1-3 sentences.) (E.g., “The writer has developed a thesis…; The writer has synthesized sources…..; The writer has clarified connections…”)
(2) What sources has she added to the Six Source Essay? What effect do the new source(s) have on the essay? (1-3 sentences) (E.g., “The new sources serve to emphasize the writer’s point that…; The new sources illustrate specific ideas in the other articles…..”)
(3) Pick a paragraph section of the Six-Source Essay where synthesis needs to be improved, and add an appropriate transitional phrase/sentence.
As you think about synthesis in the Six Source Essay, consider the use of transitions. Transitions are like signs for your readers. They give direction and they help to link things together. Good transitions move the reader from one point to the next, and they also focus the attention of the reader on the main idea of the essay. You can use words or phrases as transitions, but you must be careful to choose words that indicate the right relationship between ideas. Here are a few examples of relationships you can indicate with transitions:
to show addition: and, also, in addition, furthermore.
to give examples: for example, for instance, specifically
to compare: also, likewise, similarly
to contrast: however, on the other hand, yet, although
to summarize or conclude: therefore, in other words
to show time: after, before, during, next, finally, meanwhile, immediately
to show place or direction: above, below, nearby, close, far, left, right
to indicate logical relationships: therefore, consequently, as a result, thus, since, because.
