Yesterday I gave you a worksheet which explains what you should do for your ORB#2 assignment, due on December 2, 2013. Click here for the link to a PDF.
You asked me about a few different aspects of this paper, so I will try to answer your questions here:
Q: Can we use the main ORB text as one of our sources?
A: If you make reference to the main ORB text, you are required to cite it, so it has to be in the Works Cited page. It is not, however, counted as one of your "required" sources unless it is a reference book. (Some of your fellow students actually took out reference books to read as their ORB. Why? Ask Will.)
Q: What is an in-text citation?
A: In-text citations are the same as parenthetical documentation. Look on your worksheet for a website where you can find a good explanation. Also on Purdue OWL, you'll find a sample Works Cited page and sample in-text citations. Watch the video below for extra help. The only thing that I don't like in the video is that the man uses a period at the end of his sentence AND a period after his parentheses. That is wrong. He should use ONLY that last period.
