1.       This is planned so no one’s grade is hurt:

·         if you already know all or part of this – This is great.

·         If you did not, but tried to teach yourself –This is even more exciting to me! 

·         If you did not, but are willing to try now –I am good with that and I will help you.

2.       Something I should have said about citation in the demo:

·         Chicago Manual of Style and things with money on the line are rigorous about evidence

·         Chicago Manual of Style is about writing about history not collecting term papers
Read aloud an example to show why Chicago Manual of Style does this.

If you used what is called inline citations, you just need to replace that good habit with the habit of putting a superscript in your words and the footnote below. Fortunately, with Microsoft Word that is easy, OK?

3.       You will get back in this order:

·         Rubric with my marks (top) and a space for your required response (bottom)


·   Your name and what a # (1.11 or another number) and Cheatsheet Attached means
the 1.11 means (If you change, you get the full 20 out of 20)

·   If you have a letter grade from C to A marked

·   If you have the X’s marked
- the 20.9 means
- the 1.11 means (If you change, you get the full 30 out of 30)

·   The required response before I enter points (the pink stuff)

·         Your paper with Habit #s (like 2F) in the left margin
Plus so you all could succeed, I went back and—if you were incorrect--marked in blue

·   where you could have put your superscript # (like 1) in your text

·   what you needed to put in the footnote at the bottom

·         The Cheatsheet if you attached one. Note: the offer to those who did not.


4.       How can I possibly mark that you “half-copy” plagiarized and I can prove it?

·         Please hear what I am trying to tell you:

·   It is not that you lack morals.

·   It is that you have a habit dangerous to your future either in future levels of classes or in a job.


·         How is it possible for me to mark it fast and prove it:

·   The Rules - The Bedford Handbook on half-copy plagiarism Chicago Manual of Style.

·   How I grade with the book side by side with your papers
Note well: It took me over 20 hours this weekend and more hours this morning. I must care what happens to you

5.       How can I possibly mark that you are factually inaccurate and I can prove it?
See the bullets in 4.
Or if you think I am wrong, you can show me on the textbook page why I am wrong. I most want the truth.
That’s what is neat and morally powerful about evidence, OK?

6.       What is puzzling me big time or these kinds of things:

·         3 of you did inline citation (the whole footnote) instead of the footnote superscript. You understood the key issue that no one can just say something is true without proof. That’s good! But do start using the footnote method.

·         4 of you attempted the correct footnote superscripts and footnote text. That’s great!

·         2 of you thought that you only had to cite quotations and not facts in your own words. Dangerous to good thinking! If a prof says do that, do that. But I will never say it so do not do it on these papers.

·          Over 1/3 thought you did not have to link each part of your words to a exact page of the source. Fatal to good thinking! If a prof says do that, do that. But I will never say it so do not do it on these papers.
