Unit 4 Project Due
ONE WRITER’S JOURNEY
USING SOURCES WISELY
• 80/20 Rule
• PARAPHRASE more than you QUOTE
• Use sources to support your ideas rather than
  allowing them to become the paper itself
• Avoid CUTTING and PASTING
• Respond to/analyze source information
HOW TO PARAPHRASE
• Read your source without having your draft
  open at the same time.
• Re-read it until you understand it and can
  “teach” it to others
• Explain it in your own words
• Compare your paraphrase with the original
• CITE IT
PRACTICE PARAPHRASING
• When crime is planned, the criminal ordinarily
  concentrates on escaping detection, arrest, and
  conviction. The threat of even the severest punishment
  will not discourage those who expect to escape detection
  and arrest. It is impossible to imagine how the threat of
  any punishment could prevent a crime that is not
  premeditated. Gangland killings, air piracy, drive-by
  shootings, and kidnapping for ransom are among the
  graver felonies that continue to be committed because
  some individuals think they are too clever to get caught.

AVOIDING PLAGIARISM
• What is PLAGIARISM and HOW do you avoid it?
• WHY is this PLAGIARISM:

Children being the future investors of capitalism force
 advertisement to work hard in order to remain one step
 ahead of it’s competitor and the consumer. Recognizing
 that brand loyalty and consumer habits are formed when
 children are young, advertisers spend 100s of billions of
 dollars a year worldwide encouraging, persuading, and
 manipulating people into a consumer lifestyle that has
 devastating consequences for the environment through
 its extravagance and wastefulness. (beder.uow.edu.au).
IS THIS PLAGIARISM?
• ORIGINAL:
• “One of the most damaging consequences of media’s images of women and men is that
  these images encourage us to perceive normal bodies and normal physical functions as
  problems. It’s understandable to wish we weighed a little more or less, had better
  developed muscles, and never had pimples or cramps.
• What is neither reasonable nor healthy, however, is to regard healthy, functional bodies as
  abnormal and unacceptable. Yet this is precisely the negative self-image cultivated by
  media portrayals of women and men.”
• Wood, Julia T. Our Body, Our Image: How the Media Hurts Our Sense of Self. New
  York: Longman, 1998.
• STUDENT VERSION ONE:
• Version 1: A damaging consequence of media’s images of women and men is that these
  images encourage us to think of normal bodies and normal physical functions as problems.
  It’s totally understandable to wish we weighed a little more or less, had bigger muscles, and
  never had pimples or cramps. What is neither reasonable nor healthy, however, is to think
  of healthy, functional bodies as abnormal and unacceptable. But this is precisely the
  negative self-image cultivated by media portrayals of women and men.

• VERSION TWO
•
• A damaging consequence of media’s images of
  women and men is that these images encourage us
  to think of normal bodies and normal physical
  functions as problems. It’s totally understandable to
  wish we weighed a little more or less, had bigger
  muscles, and never had pimples or cramps. What is
  neither reasonable nor healthy, however, is to think
  of healthy, functional bodies as abnormal and
  unacceptable. But this is precisely the negative self-
  image cultivated by media portrayals of women and
  men (Wood)
IS THIS PLAGIARISM?
• VERSION THREE:
•
• A damaging consequence of media’s images of women
  and men is that these images encourage us to think of
  normal bodies and normal physical functions as
  problems. As Julia T. Wood points out, “It’s
  understandable to wish we weighed a little more or less,
  had better developed muscles, and never had pimples or
  cramps“ (300). What is neither reasonable nor healthy,
  however, is to think of healthy, functional bodies as
  abnormal and unacceptable. But this is “precisely the
  negative self-image cultivated by media portrayals of
  women and men” (Wood 300).
IS THIS PLAGIARISM?
• VERSION FOUR:
•
• A casual glance at any fashion magazine makes the
  point—we need to weigh less, have clearer skin,
  larger breasts if we are women, and more hair if we
  are men. As Julia T. Wood points out, media images
  “encourage us to perceive normal bodies and normal
  physical functions as problems” (p. 300).
• This media-generated perception--that our perfectly
  normal bodies must be altered to be acceptable--is
  changing how we perceive our own bodies and
  negatively impacting our society (Wood, 1998).
