Composition and Literature
For your research paper, you will create a total of 20 note cards from your two sources. (10 cards per source)
If you have more than two sources, you may hand in more than 20 cards. Overall though, each of your sources should be represented in your cards.
These cards will then be used to help you write your research paper.
You are required to hand in a minimum of 20 note cards.
Why is it a good idea to have MORE note cards than you are required?
There are three ways to write note cards:
This is when you copy the quotation from your source, word for word, without changing anything (including punctuation)
This is when you take the quotation and rewrite it, putting it into your own words. A paraphrase should be shorter than the original work.
This is when you put a writer’s main idea(s) into your own words. Very often, this occurs when a writer summarizes an entire page or even chapter of a book.
“...(in organized sports) children may be subject to intense emotional stress caused by fear and anxiety ...concern about physical safety, and doubts about performance and outcome. This anxiety may emerge if children are ignored, chastised, or made to feel that they are no good. Scanlan and Passer’s study of preadolescent male soccer players showed that losing players evidenced more post-game anxiety than winning players. Children who experience anxiety in sport competition may try to avoid failure by shying away from active participation by developing excuses or by refusing to try new things” (45)
