read Sered’s posts on other topics that are related to the Boston women and react to that if you want.
Read one or more of the blog posts on Susan Sered’s blog http://susan.sered.name/blog/category/cant-catch-a-break/ that follows up with many of the Boston women over the years. The point of this would be for you to see how any of the Boston women from the book (Can’t Catch a Break) are doing and to reflect on that. You can also read Sered’s posts on other topics that are related to the Boston women and react to that if you want. Just connect the blog posts(s) to the text how you see fit and offer some of your own reflections.
– 750-word reflection
•When you quote or paraphrase (whether from a film, a talk, or a reading), just use MLA parenthetical citations. Also, make sure to include a “Works Cited” page at the end. Introduce the quotation in your own words, then give the quotation with the proper quotation marks, and then include a parenthetical citation after the closing quotation marks. Include the period after the closing parenthesis of the citation.
•Avoid plagiarism. Keep in mind that plagiarism is a much broader category than you might think. In particular, if you are attempting to explain an idea of somebody’s in your own words, you need to use quotation marks and offer a parenthetical citation if you have three or more words that are the same from the source you’re discussing. You also need a citation if you are paraphrasing (i.e., using but not directly quoting) somebody else’s idea. You also need a parenthetical citation (and perhaps also quotation marks) if you use even one word from the source that is not an integral part of your own vocabulary already.
•Make sure to demonstrate thoughtfulness and precision.
