Collect by Copy Paste

Assignment

In this assignment, we will use cut and paste to collect information. We went over cutting and pasting in class. The intent of this exercise is to get you familiar with collecting raw material useful for writing papers.

Create a Google doc and paste parts (text and images) into it. Go to http://news.google.com/ and search for recent news stories about your hobbies. We will go over a few of these in class.

Reading

As a student, you will write papers using work from other people. Original authors need credit. Read this chapter excerpt from Steven D. Krause and we will discuss it in class.
