Scholarly Voice: Tone. https://academicguides.waldenu.edu/writingcenter/scholarlyvoice/tone This weeks revision activity will help you integrate supporting evidence into your Career Narrative Essay working draft.Give yourself time to look for sources, think about what evidence from those sources works best, and how you want to integrate this evidence into your draft. When finished, you will have three specific pieces of evidence added to your working draft.NOTE: Find and open your Week 3 assignment, so you can make changes to the paragraphs as you add evidence.On or Before Day 7Step 1: Find a general source and quote it. (click to expand/reduce)General sources are those that are targeted toward a general audience, meaning no specialized knowledge is needed to understand them. Magazines, newspapers, and webpages are considered general sources. They rarely go through the peer review process, where a source is evaluated by experts in the field. This means that the information has been checked to make sure it is accurate. General sources do not go through the peer review process and could be biased or downright false. It is always good to double-check evidence and evaluate facts when you use general sources. General sources are best used within an essays introduction or conclusion. Follow the steps below in order: 1. Open your favorite search engine. Type in search words or phrases that tie in with your career path, goals, or social change. For example, you might type in nursing and social change (these are search words), or you might type in how social work benefits society (this is a search phrase). 2. Find a quote which captures your attention.3. Look carefully at your Week 3 Career Narrative Essay working draft. Find the paragraph where the quote fits best. Within the paragraph, place the quote where it most logically fits.4. Introduce the quote. Some common introductory phrases include according to the author states she writes and so on. Never have a quote stand as a sentence by itself! Instead, include a sentence or phrase that prepares the reader for the quote. Click the link for information about quoting.5. Include a narrative or parenthetical citation to identify the specific source you quoted.Click the link for information about narrative and parenthetical citations.Make sure you look at this resource carefully. Giving credit to sources is an essential part of writing with evidence. Immediately follow the quote with an explanation of the message or main idea you want your reader to understand. Remember, we all interpret quotes differently, so think about why this quote is important, how you want your reader to interpret it, and how it supports the ideas you are making within the paragraph.Step 2: Use Google Scholar to find an academic source and summarize it. (click to expand/reduce)The difference between Google, or another internet browser search engine, and Google Scholar is that Google Scholar limits searches to scholarly literature available on the Internet and provides access to full text sources, including books and journal articles.Note: Google Scholar is not perfect, and some sources cost money. You need to look at each source carefully to ensure that it is credible (trustworthy), unbiased, and free of charge. Follow the numbered steps below in order:1. Go to this weblink: https://scholar.google.com/. Feel free to bookmark Google Scholar, as you will be doing research and writing papers throughout your educational journey.Type in search words or phrases that tie in with your career path, goals, or social change. For example, you might type in nursing and social change (these are search words), or you might type in how social work benefits society (this is a search phrase). Look carefully at the results and find a source you would like to summarize and use within a paragraph of your Career Narrative Essay working draft. Summarizing shows a higher level of critical thinking than quoting because you must condense the authors main ideas and/or claim into a few sentences that are written in your own voice (using your own words). Click the link for information about summarizing.2. Look carefully at your Career Narrative Essay working draft to determine where your summary belongs. Within the paragraph, place the summary where it most logically fits. Note: Try to put your summary in a paragraph that needs evidence or an example. 3. Follow your summary with a parenthetical citation. Immediately follow the parenthetical citation with a sentence or two explaining the summarys importance with analysis. Why does the summary matter, how does it relate to the paragraph, and/or what should the reader think about it? Step 3: Find and paraphrase a scholarly source in Waldens Library Databases. (click to expand/reduce)Although Google Scholar is better than just a generic search, library databases are superior for research because they contain mostly peer-reviewed sources. The resources found in research databases are predominantly scholarly and are generally not available for public view on the internet, which makes these sources more credible than general sources. Databases contain published sources that originally appeared in print (journal articles, books, etc.). Follow the numbered steps below in order:1. Click the link and follow the instructions to find sources within Waldens Library databases that you might use in your Career Narrative Essay working draft. Click here for Foundations – Library Resources: Searching & Retrieving Materials in the DatabasesLook carefully at the results and browse through them to find a source you want to paraphrase. Rewrite a small passage (1-2 sentences max) in your own words. Paraphrasing shows a higher level of critical thinking than quoting because it requires the writer to put the same ideas into their own words. The paraphrase will be about the same length as the original. Click the link below for information about paraphrasing. 2. Look carefully at your Career Narrative Essay working draft. Find the paragraph where your paraphrase fits best. Put the paraphrase where it logically belongs. 3. Follow your paraphrase with a parenthetical citation. Immediately follow the paraphrase with an explanation of the message or main idea you want your reader to understand. Think about why this paraphrase is important, how you want your reader to interpret it, and how it supports the ideas you are making within the paragraph.Step 4: Format your essay according to APA guidelines.
