Zines Reviewed September 17th
Zine, what about? 1.You must choose a topic. Topic MUST address the standard for Negative impacts of human activity on the environment!! Choose one specific human activity which is negatively impacting the environment. Or, choose one specific environmental problem which is caused in part, by human activity.
Where do I find jnformation about topics? Look in the Blendspace module, Zines, Sept , boxes 2-8, Or, Look in my staff page file cabinet #7, for General Biology. I have listed a lot of resources. If no internet? Ask Mrs. Gotler for a hard copy of a reading or two.
What do I do with each reading? Annotate! – write down: 1. New words and their meanings if you think they are important. 2. Author’s main claim or argument. Author’s main points. 3. Do you agree with the author? Do you disagree? How much? Why? 4. Does this information remind you of anything, literal or figurative, from your own life? How could this be shown in your own magazine(zine)? 5. What are the most important details the author gives?
What do I do with each reading, continued… 6. Of the author’s main details, which ones could you use to explain the science of your topic to your audience? 7. Which details would support your own claims or opinions?

When to cite references in a science research paper or assignment When to Cite References in Scientific Research Papers: Any time (and every time) you use a fact or an idea that you obtained from that source. Cite sources for all direct quotations. Cite sources from which you paraphrase or summarize facts or ideas— whether you’ve put the fact or idea into your own words or not, you got the fact or idea from somebody else and you need to give them proper acknowledgement (even if an idea might be considered “common knowledge,” but you didn’t know it until you found it in a particular source).
Citing References in MLA format For our zine, list the author in parentheses after the sentence cited or quoted. Ex. …acidic oceans.”(Jones) If more than one page in the source, list the author and page number in parentheses after the sentence cited or quoted. Ex. …oceans.”(Jones, p.2)
Bibliography for MLA format Article in a Magazine Cite by listing the article's author, putting the title of the article in quotations marks, and italicizing the periodical title. Follow with the date of publication. Remember to abbreviate the month. The basic format is as follows: Author(s). "Title of Article." Title of Periodical Day Month Year: pages. Medium of publication. Poniewozik, James. "TV Makes a Too-Close Call." Time 20 Nov. 2000: Print.
Bibliography cont. MLA format Anonymous Articles (no author listed) Cite the article title first, and finish the citation as you would any other for that kind of periodical.
