Topic: Research Notes

10-second review: To help students remember to cite both quotes and paraphrases, the author uses a double-entry note-taking technique suggested by Ballenger in 2007. The top of the page lists the complete citation of the text from which the quote is taken. In the column on the left, the student writes the quote. In the column on the right, the student paraphrases the quote. In the space at the bottom the student summarizes the entire article or chapter or book.

Title: “Research That Works: Double-entry Documentation.” LL Revelle. Classroom Notes Plus (October 2009), 12-14. A publication of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

Comment: One piece of the research puzzle made clear. RayS.
