    Explanation
    On every note card of notes, three things must be included: the source used, the paraphrased notes, and the page numbers used. This ensures that proper credit is given to the original source, allows for easy reference and citation, and helps avoid plagiarism by using one's own words to summarize the information from the source.

    When paraphrasing while taking notes on your note cards, a good rule to follow is to never copy more than ______ words in a row.

    Correct Answer
    3
    three
    Three
    Explanation
    When paraphrasing while taking notes on note cards, it is important to avoid copying more than three words in a row. This rule helps to ensure that you are not simply copying the original text word for word, but rather synthesizing the information in your own words. By limiting the number of consecutive words you copy, you are forced to actively engage with the material and express it in a way that demonstrates your understanding.

    • D.

      It's not making a point

    Correct Answer
    D. It's not making a point
    Explanation
    Your thesis statement must make a point. Your paper cannot simply be informational. You must make a point about your infamous person and support that point with your research. Your thesis statement guides your entire paper. Every sentence in your paper and every research example must support it. So your thesis statement must be arguable.

    • A.

      First sentence

    • B.

      Second sentence

    • C.

      Second to last sentence

    • D.

      Last sentence

    Correct Answer
    D. Last sentence
    Explanation
    The thesis statement is typically placed at the end of the introduction paragraph. This placement allows the writer to provide some background information and context before presenting their main argument or claim. By placing the thesis statement at the end, it ensures that the reader has a clear understanding of the topic and its importance before being introduced to the main point of the paper.

    • B.

    • C.

      Put a star by the unused source on your Works Cited list

    • D.

      Put the unused source in parentheses on your Works Cited list

    Correct Answer
    B. Remove the source from your Works Cited list
    Explanation
    If you decide not to use a source that you previously listed on your Works Cited page, you should remove the source from your Works Cited list. This is because the purpose of the Works Cited page is to provide an accurate list of the sources that were actually used in your work. Removing the unused source ensures that your Works Cited list only includes the sources that were referenced in your work.
