The Source Blending Assignment
Now that we have conquered in-text citation in the citation practice (documentation), we need to take the next step and work on building better use of sources within your writing (implementation). This is know as “blending,” which means to insert a quotation from a primary or secondary source into your own writing within a sentence. This is how citations need to be implemented in college level writing.
For this assignment, you will take the three (3) examples below and fix each to properly blend the quote into the larger chunk of writing (I would suggest creating a paragraph, but you could also rewrite them as individual sentences). Please add your three (3) fixed examples with a proper MLA header and send to my school account ([email protected]) by 2359 by May 28th. Like your citation practice, you will have until July 15th at 2359 to properly revise this assignment.
