This is the assignment I have for this reading.
The First homework -Signal Phrases: Too Much Pressure – Availability Ends
Signal Phrase: Read “Too Much Pressure” by Colleen Wenke (564-568). Consider it a model for using signal phrases to introduce quoted material as explained on pages 508-512 of the Bedford Handbook.
1. Copy two good examples from Wenke’s essay of signal phrases that name the author, title, and/or publication information to introduce the quote.
2. Then write a statement of your own about Wenke’s main point which names her and her article in a signal phrase to introduce a direct quote (something she wrote, not something she quoted from someone else). Provide paranthetical citation for your quote.
The second homework- The Adored, Buzzing
Read “The Adored, Buzzing around Us” by Sharman Apt Russell (221). Write a one-paragraph summary of this reading. In a separate paragraph, write an analysis that includes three examples Russell gives to illustrate her generalizations about insects. (For a review of Summary and Analysis, see the Bedford Handbook, 96-97). Cite all direct quotes and paraphrases in MLA style.
