The Research Process 1. Choose a poem we have read so far that you like and are intrigued by. 2. Use the library databases to find an article on that poem or on the poet who wrote it. It can be literary criticism (someones article about their interpretation of the poem) or biographical (details about the poets life and background). Dont use an article about a different poem, though. 3. Read the article and highlight passages that you think are interesting, or that make good points. Its okay if you dont understand everything in the entire article – literary criticism can be challenging to read! Focus on the points that you do understand. If you feel like the entire article is confusing, choose a different one, though. No one wants you to feel lost and confused. 4. Write a brief paragraph (three or four sentences is great) about the poem or poet. Incorporate at least one quote from the poem and one quote from the article. Remember that quotes should be integrated into your own sentences. Theres an example below. If youre not sure how to format your quote, click this link for the Purdue OWL guide. 5. Include internal citations for your quotations. Poems should be cited with authors last name and a line number (line of the poem the quote comes from). Articles should be cited with authors last name and a page number. Theres an example below, but if you need more help with internal citations, click this link for Purdue OWLs guide to that. 6. Include a Works Cited list for your paragraph. It should include the poem and the article. Remember that the database can usually provide the citation in MLA format for you. For more help and examples of Works Cited page, click this link for the Purdue OWL guide to Works Cited pages. In Adrienne Richs poem Aunt Jennifers Tigers, the speaker describes her aunt Jennifer as terrified (9) and mastered by (10) conflicts in her life. The speakers description gives readers as much information about her, the niece, as it does about the aunt. As one scholar argues, the speaker is making judgments about Aunt Jennifer (Rizza 65). Jennifer is, after all, able to flutter (Rich 5) her hands to do needlework, though the speaker views her hands as being under the massive weight of a wedding band (Rich 7). Michael Rizza sees this description as contradictory, and attributes the symbolic weight of the ring to the nieces judgment more than actual description (65). It is not clear that Aunt Jennifer feels as weighed down as her niece perceives her to be.

225.1 What is Environmental Science? Environmental science studies the complex interactions between humans and the world around them. These interactions involve many fields of science including physics, biology, chemistry, geology, and more. Because of the human investment in environmental science, researchers must also be aware of the social, economic, and ethical conflicts involved. Think about the environmental issues that affect your local community. Are there problems associated with getting clean water? How does your community deal with waste disposal, water treatment, and the generation of power? How has development of your local area changed over time? Do you think this has had any influence on the organisms that live in your local area? Answer the following throughout the week: · Describe one or two issues that you believe are related to environmental science. They may be things that are happening in your own home or community, or something affecting the country. · Do some research to find some specific facts concerning this issue and provide a brief summary of your findings. Be sure to consult reliable sources of information like www.sciencedaily.com. · What aspects of your everyday life do you think can be improved through a better understanding of environmental science? · What things do you not understand that you hope this course will be able to clarify? Your Discussion Board posts should be original, well thought-out, and respectful. Main posts should fully and completely discuss each question posed and make frequent, informed references to this units material. Engage in ongoing, productive conversation by responding to a minimum of two classmates per topic. Responses to classmates should be at least 50 words. Remember, you will learn more by sharing ideas! Please note: Borrowed material (quotes, summaries, or paraphrases) should make up no more than 10% of the total word count for all written assignments in this course, including Discussion. All writing must be in your own words and borrowed material must be properly cited and referenced.

Practice Plan For this assignment you will create a practice plan that will prepare you to take your place as a clinical mental health counselor who serves a selected population in your community. Completing this assignment will require you to think about the context in which you will someday serve clients—the historical context, the network of mental health services currently available to clients in your community, and the labor market context that may influence your selected area of practice. This assignment will also invite you to envision yourself participating in a professional organization that supports clinical mental health counselors and the counseling profession. This is your paper’s introduction (one paragraph). An effective introduction prepares the reader by identifying the purpose of the paper and providing the organization of the paper. In the body of your paper, indent the first line of each paragraph. Double space throughout (with no extra spaces between paragraphs), and use 12-point Times New Roman. For the purposes of this assessment, simply replace this text with a brief paragraph in your own words stating what this paper will cover, thus cuing the reader as to what will follow. Historical Background Identify and describe a population whom you would like to counsel someday (for example, children, teens, seniors, LGBTQ individuals, individuals with a particular disability or disorder). Provide reasons why you think you would find this area of counseling rewarding. When providing these personal reasons, it is acceptable to use first-person voice. In another paragraph, concisely summarize the history and development of clinical mental health counseling, including key events that have influenced counseling services available for this population. This section should be about one page and should be in third-person voice. Network and Practice Describe the network of mental health counseling services available for a client from your selected population, based on your Internet search of all agencies that offer mental health services for your selected population in your community. Include services that are available across the continuum of care, including inpatient, outpatient, partial treatment and aftercare options. In a second paragraph, identify a potential professional niche for yourself within this network of services. Offer your review of information available in O*Net, the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT), and the Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH). Analyze the skills, educational requirements, and average earnings of a counselor in your state. Supervision and Consultation Describe a plan for receiving post-masters clinical supervision that meets ethical requirements of the American Counseling Association and legal requirements in your state, referencing specific points in the ethical and legal codes. Cite the codes as you describe your plan, and include the codes in the References section of your paper. Next, describe resources in your professional community with whom you could engage in case consultation. Identify practices you would use so that your case consultation would meet ethical and legal requirements. Cite specific ethical or legal codes that will guide you when you need to seek consultation about a case. Professional Organizations In this section, identify several national, state, regional, or special interest professional organizations that will support your practice as a professional counselor. Describe several ways in which you will benefit from affiliation with these professional counseling organizations. Conclusion Provide a brief conclusion for your paper. Mention that your Professional Counseling Disclosure Statement is presented in Appendix A. References [Here, include the sources that you cited, using hanging indentation. The references below provide example citations for an article, book, and website. See your course syllabus, as well, for examples of how to cite the assigned and optional resources you have used.] Author, A. A., Author, B. B., Author, C. C. (year). Title of article.

Evaluation of Argument Essay Prompt: Which of the two writers we studied for this unit do you believe makes the most effective argument, Schumaker or Twenge? Write a paper developing your position on the strongest argument of the two. You should start with some pre-writing on the issue to discover your position and the criteria (standards) you will use. Then once you have a thesis decide on what reasons you will give for its support. These reasons will be your topics sentences in body paragraphs. The introduction should help your paper read as a stand-along essay rather than as a mere response to a question asked by a professor. Then flesh out examples and evidence for each body paragraph and write the first draft. Put it aside and return to it a couple of days later to see whether there is a clear thesis, whether each paragraph has a topic sentence (reason) that supports the thesis, and whether evidence in each paragraph relates to the topic sentence. Check transitions, word choice, and edit and proofread. Follow the guidelines for format in the syllabus. Upload the paper for peer and self-assessment by the set deadline. You will then go through the assessment activity, and finally upload the revised paper by the stated deadline. Structure: You can choose any of the two articles you want, but make sure you are clear in your choice and the reasons for choosing it. Also, be fair—since the essay you did not choose has some great strength also, acknowledge it. Or, you can instead choose to acknowledge some weakness your own choice has (or do both in the concession paragraph). Of course, being fair does not mean being ambivalent. You will still make it clear you find your choice the strongest. Sources: The two articles will be the sources you will use for this paper, with no other sources needed or expected. You will create a works cited page entry for it with the two articles. For whatever you use in your essay from the articles, put it in quotation marks and indicate the page number in parenthesis, or if you paraphrase it or use an idea from it put just the page number in the parenthesis. Audience: Your audience will be readers who are considering which of the two articles to include in a college textbook and who are leaning toward the opposite selection of the one you made. Length: Papers should be at least 900 words (minimum) Grading: I will grade you on the following criteria: Element Points A clear structure with a thesis in the introduction, topic sentences for each body paragraph, and conclusion; the title, introduction, and conclusion are engaging. 15 The paper clearly reaches out to its audience. This is evident throughout in tone, and especially in the concession paragraph. 15 Body paragraphs have sufficient evidence for each topic sentence and are focused. Paragraphs have adequate downshifting. The paper clearly reaches out to its audience. 20 There is appropriate use of sources (not extensive—simply strategic) 20 The paper is written in eloquent prose, and there are no frequent errors in grammar, sentence structure and other mechanics. There are effective transitions between paragraphs and diction and sentence structure are appropriate for the college level. There is appropriate sentence variety. 15 The writer has followed the guidelines for a paper’s form in the syllabus 5 Entries for Works Cited: Schumaker, John F. “The Paradox of Narcissism.” The Aims of Argument: A Text and Reader, edited by Timothy W.
