PART ONE: "ANNOYING WAYS PEOPLE USE SOURCES"
How does Stedman relate driving to effective using sources?
Define two of the "annoyances" he discusses (e.g. Armadillo roadkill, Dating Spiderman, Uncle Berry and his Encyclopedia of useless knowledge, Am I in the right movie?, Where's the link, or I swear I did some research!)
Analyze your own use of sources in your Viewpoint Synthesis. Identify one place where you created one of these annoyances. Now fix it and post it here.
PART TWO: Writing with Style Guides MLA or APA
Please Note: In English and Humanities it is expected for you to write in MLA format. However, if you know that the bulk of your future papers will be written in APA format, you may choose to write in APA; discuss this writing choice with your instructor of record.
