    Why is there no such thing as a group of bi-partisan legislators?
    – It’s a bipartisan group of legislators, not group of bipartisan legislators
    – Watch where you place the adjective when writing or speaking – grammar
    When posting to the blog, it’s a good idea to add a title in addition to the name, and make sure that both the assignment and name categories are correctly chosen.
    – Stone Money – introduced to the Yaps and their use of stone disk currency (assignment)
    – Read “The Invention of Money” by Milton Friedman
    – Instead of using footnotes, use citations
    – “In his dissertation… claims that ‘money is fiction.’”
    – Later on, only last name is required, i.e. “Friedman said…” or “he said…” if close enough to the first quote.
    ***Include Type, Publication, Title, Author, “Said” language
    – Contain enough information to be able to match citation to the source
    ***Articles are in quotation marks while publications and book titles are in italics
    – Paraphrasing is for rewording, but citations are still required when doing so
    “Create a citation” exercise
    Hypothesis Assignment
    – Include six steps to find your complete hypothesis
    – Begin with a broad statement worth researching, and with each step refine the statement, work on finding a new angle that few others have approached, and try to find a counterintuitive argument/ side of the hypothesis.

  2. -Our first essay will be due in a week. It will be the only essay that we write that has an assigned topic. It will only have one draft and will be graded as such.

    -There is no such thing as a group of bipartisan legislators, but there is such thing as a bipartisan group of legislators.

    -Everyone of our essays should have it’s own title separate from the assignment title.

    -The people of Yap island are called the Yap, they speak Yap, and they use massive stone disks as currency.

    -When citing someone’s name in a piece of writing, you first have to spell out their full name and title. After that, you can just refer to them by their last name.

    -Every citation needs to have “said” language in it.

    -when citing, articles appear in quotation marks and publications are italicized.

    -When you smash two heads together, there’s nothing stopping the two brains from rattling in their respective skulls. There is a hypothesis that removing helmets from the NFL will reduce concussions more than helmet improvements because it will make players much more reluctant to make dangerous decisions or plays while in game. We should compare rugby and NFL games in order to gather more information for this.

    Notes are similar to a purposeful summary
    Best off putting drafts into “Feedback Please” to steadily improve
    Why is there no such thing as bi-partisan legislators?
    Nobody shares all of the same views (My Answer)
    A bi-partisan group of legislators (Real Answer: little grammar corrections)
    Review of how to categorize blog posts
    Stone discs used as money (topic of next assignment)
    Use of “illustration” in your writing is ideal instead of being all bland talk
    The real challenge is citing sources in text rather than the works cited page
    Example: In his dissertation The Invention of Money, Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman states “…”.
    Only use that in depth description when you first mention the author, otherwise use last name (Friedman states “…”)
    Clear reference to source you are citing = Good Citation
    Articles appear in quotes, publications in italics
    Paraphrase or not, you must cite the source
    Six step hypothesis review
    Broad Topics are best for gaining and formulating arguments due to the different routes you could take

    Early grades in the semester are usually lower than expected. Designed to help you later on in the semester. There is no such thing as a group of bi-partisan legislators but there is such thing as a bipartisan group made up of two parties. Title assignments: The name of assignment-Username. 1000 word essay on Stone Money. People called the Yap use large stones as currency. Milton Friedman’s essay on the topic. Do not sound academic in writing. Ideas from Radio broadcast and Milton Friedman essay are included in 1000 word essay. Nothing inside text. All citations are included on the reference page. Name publication, author, and quote. No page numbers. Introduce full name author of the source, then condense it after. When first mentioned: The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. When mentioned any other time: Just say King or King Jr. Type of publication, title, author. Every citation has to include said language. Prof Said, “hello”. Every time you mention articles and other sources, you are referring to references that are listed on the reference page. Example article from CDC on childhood obesity. Can convert introduction of sources to hyperlinks to make the reader of the opportunity to view your sources while reading. Still need references when paraphrasing. Paraphrasing is talking about sources without quoting something word for word. Used to make arguments stronger and in own words. Hypothesis is a broad topic. Example: concussions in football. Six lines of test. Write in six steps, Show work! Not making claims in earlier steps. Get from general in first step, then very specific in last step. Last step should make a claim. Research and verify. Football helmets are a factor in concussions. Research football from before helmets to research claim. The hypothesis will set the basis for the 3000 word paper. Most likely will change original hypothesis. Hypothesis is due Midnight Tues. 2/9. Stone Money essay due before midnight on Mon 2/15.

    Warm Up
    – there is no such thing as bipartisan legislators because if they are bipartisan then they can’t be in the same group.
    -grammar change to a bipartisan group of legislators (the order of words are IMPORTANT, get used to having better grammar skills)
    Lecture
    -Stone Money
    –sound smart, clear and have a persuasive argument
    –1,000 words and use the skills gained from the purposeful summary
    Citation Notes
    -we will be using APA format
    -use bibliography builders
    -title, quote and paraphrase can create an appropriate sentence to describe the part that is useful to your argument
    -look at APA citation assignment for further details
    Hypothesis
    -find a topic you’re not going to get annoyed with writing about, make sure it genuinely INTERESTS you because you will be writing about it all semester (don’t use topics you’ve beaten to death in high school, get creative)
    -6 lines, start with a broad topic and narrow it down as the lines continue
    – the last line should be hypothesis that is narrow and provable
    – you want to be able to add to the conversation, not just an agreement of what other people have found in their research
    -topics that are relevant now that interest me: corona virus and the production of vaccines, how successful is online school?, correlation between daily computer use and mental health, fast fashion and its’ impact on the environment, women vs men in power and how they are portrayed in the media
    -your hypothesis will change, don’t get stuck on one idea

    Definition of Partison – a strong supporter of a party
    Bipartison – strong supporters of 2 parties
    No such thing as “a group of bipartisan legislators”, but there is such thing as “a bipartison group of legislators.”
    Use APA format for References. Title, author, and quote in any order. Make sure references are alphabetical. The more citations you have, the more original research you’ve done.
    Narrow down hypothesis in 6 lines. Be as narrow as possible for 3000 words.
    What causes a concussion is the brain hitting the inside of the skull. Causing blood to rush to it. Could be permanent damage. Compare concussion rates in football; helmet vs without helmet; look at rugby as a good non helmet example.

    Assignment = Find something I care about and make 6 step hypothesis on it.

    The warm up is called “Why is there no such thing as a bipartisan legislators?” This is because the group is bipartisan. Instead we should look at it as “A bipartisan group of legislators.”
    We are going to write a 1,000 word essay called “stone money” soon. This is about people on an island that use large stones as money. This is going to be a non-portfolio essay.
    For in text citations we should introduce the person with the title of his or her work. We can also give a few tidbits of information on this person. Reference him and just say “he said”, or if it is later written “Freedman said”.
    Said language is where you say someone said something ie. |Prof said,”Hello”|
    We don’t need to have parenthesis and a person’s name as long as it is clear enough who you are referencing. An article is put in quotation marks while publications appear in italics.
    The hypothesis is going to be six lines of text that are extremely broad but do narrow the topic.
    Having a topic that is easy to cover and already has many sources means that you are adding nothing to the conversation!

    Notes 2/8/21
    Riddle- Why is there no such thing as a group of bi- partisan legislators? Each member of the group is bi-partisan, when they come together, then they become bi- partisan.
    “Stone Money”- group of people on the island of yap who speak yap, used stone discs as currency.
    Discussed citation techniques- not putting them in the text, but writing them as part of your own text.
    Use full name on the first mention of a person, only last on the 2nd and there on out.
    Citation must match the references.
    Hypotheses- creating 6 lines for a topic, each getting more and more specific
    Went through an example hypothesis breaking down preventing concussions in the NFL.Going all the way from concussions, down to what if the NFL got rid of helmets, wouldn’t that be incentive to prevent further concussions?
    Will be a trial and error process with our own hypotheses, has to be something we care about and WILL care about for the next 12 weeks or so.

    Warm Up was “Why is there no such thing as a group of bi-partisan legislator”?
    Bi means two, and partisan means “belonging to a party”.
    The word “partisan” is used only when they come together as a group.
    The right term would be a group of legislators can be bi-partisan.
    A Bi-partisan group , not a group of bi-partisan legislators.
    Island called Yap where their currency is Stone Disks.
    We are going to read a 5 page reading.
    The goal is to sound smart and persuasive but not academic.
    Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman
    Demonstrating APA
    Said language is required in citations.
    Said language example “according to” expressing one’s opinion.
    When citing a claim, be careful.
    We talked about the helmets in the NFL and what could be done about concussions.
    The leather helmets were meant to prevent bone to bone collision.
    Peer reviews can help with hypothesis

    -Today’s class we opened up about the importance of good note taking and how valuable it is to your writing. How it is almost like a purposeful summary. Take all the words the professor said and condense it to only the valuable information.
    -We discussed the grading system and how it’s weighted and may move up and down depending on your work.
    -Today’s riddle
    -was to show us the importance of how to place your adjective to modify the appropriate word. A group of bipartisan legislators is wrong but A bipartisan group of legislators is correct.
    – Went over how to publish work correctly on word press.
    – the name of the assignment dash username
    – title
    – your text
    – select the proper categories for the assignment
    Mechanics
    Discussed how to properly cite in the writing assignment
    Type of source
    name the publication
    name the author
    name the quote
    and a little background of the author
    – Articles appear in quotation marks and publications appear italicized
    Lectures
    Starting our by making our hypothesis for our 3000 word essay
    Narrowing a topic. Idea starter. Trying to get more specific as times increase.
    The first hypothesis was “concussion in football” and the last hypothesis was “Eliminating helmets from NFL games would reduce concussion more than helmet improvement by making players very reluctant to engage in the most dangerous plays.”
    How to research that topic would be comparing NFL concussion rates to Rugby concussion rates.

    First 1000 word essay will be due the 13th. Expect it to be an eye opener in regards to the grade to receive. You will get your first grade not on the original draft but rather the first rewrite of it.

    Why is there no such thing as a group Bi-partisan legislators.
    Answer : A Bipartisan group of legislators.

    When submitting work on this page, always make sure to use the categories to put in the filters not the tags.

    Today we are getting ready for a short argument essay based on the article stone money. Which focuses on the yaps who’s culture still uses stone coin as a form of currency.

    When making the first quote from an article make sure to mention both the article and author.
    “In the article the Invention of Money, scholar M.Friedman says that” money is fiction” “(Example)
    If quoting again soon after the first time one may use he or she to point out who we are talking about. If the quote comes much later on in the essay then use the authors name in order to establish who you are talking about

    APA citation :
    Type, publication, title, author , said language(were you say that the original person said the quote (The professor SAID hello))
    Citations need to show enough information so that the quotes used in the paper may be tracked back to its original source.
    One can also build a hyper link in order to allow the reader to see the source of your quote easily.

    Paraphrasing is used to make you point more powerful on the subject if the quote itself is lacking the capabilities of getting your point across to the reader.

    When mentioning a book make sure to italicize the title of the book.

    By Wednesday the 10th we need to present six sentences in relation to my Hypothesis. The first one(mark it as # 6) needs to be broadest/ vaguest out of the six and for each new sentence narrow down the topic until your last sentence which will become your hypothesis. (Ex: concussions in football(broad) –> Eliminating helmet-to-helmet blows would radically reduce the number of concussions suffered by players in NFL games(narrow))
    Go into this un biased( Don’t pick sides ahead of time. Wait until after the research to see if the your hypothesis would still stand)

    We started class by going over how grading works in class and how each assignment can affect your grade.
    We went over our 1,000 word essay called “stone money”. This essay is about people on an island that use large stones for money. This essay is goignt o be in our non-portfolio essay.
    We went over how to properly header our assignment and how to place it into the proper category in the blog.
    Mechanics:
    When you are citing the first time, you have to cite the author, the article, and then quote. The second time you just have to sight the author’s last name.
    After we went over how to cite, we went into more detail on where to properly place a citation. And that it is clear to where the citation is in the essay.
    In an essay, articles should appear in quotation makers, where publication should be put into italics.
    When you are paraphrasing, you should make sure that you are still citing the journal that you got it from.
    We started to practice on how to make an in-text citation, with a book review of Money: The True Story of a Made-Up Things by Jacob. This exercise was for us to practice on how to make a proper citation.
    We moved on to talk about hypotheses, on the process of how to narrow down the process of figuring out what you want your hypothesis to be.
    We finished class off by going over what the homework assignments are coming up and we went over what your hypothesis should look like.

    We are going to have multiple arguments in this class. We get are grade on the rewritten version. Why is there no such thing as a group of bi-partisan legislators. Bi partisan legislation means 2 political parties. You are a partisan if yo belong to a party. A bi-partisan group- a group made up of two parties. Every post should have a title. Choose your categories for the post. Stone money is about a group of people called Yap that use stone disks for money. For that essay we have to read a 5 page paper. Do not sound academic. Write 100 words about the invention of money. Use MLA or APA citation. Use the word references for your sources. If I use a quote from Milton Freeman get the tittle, author, quote, and a few tid bits of info. Every Citation has to have said language in it. Practice how to build hyperlinks in wordpress. Article is in quotation marks but publication should be in italics. You have to sight your paraphrases.
