Assignment 24173

Remember that for your Week 7 Persuasive Research Essay, you need to take your Midterm Persuasive Essay and add research to it.(Attached ) Body paragraph models are provided in the Sample Research Project link located under Week 6 and below. Note in the example below how the author took one body paragraph from the midterm essay and then enhanced it with research for the submission due this week. The following page in your textbook also provides information on including direct quotes in APA formatting in one’s work: p. 434. (attached)
Your submission should be at least 5-7 sentences long and at least one complete paragraph. You should include at least one direct quote (one or two sentences long). Quotation marks MUST be used around any quoted material and an in-text citation should accompany the direct quote. The research used needs to originate from the Online library (attached 3 files, choose any one) and be credible in nature.
Original Paragraph Without Research from Week 5’s Midterm Essay:
Greater access to technology can most certainly lead to more learning for children of all ages. For instance, instead of reading about sharks in encyclopedias, first graders can now turn on a computer and go scuba diving with a diver off of the coast of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Such a learning experience is not only more memorable, it is more authentic and comprehensive. Details can be supplied in videos that would otherwise be two dimensional and lackluster in description can be brought to life in vivid detail through digital animations and recordings. In offering more technological devices to students, teachers can bring learning to life in ways that connect more concretely with students in order to both increase the breadth of knowledge acquired by students as well as the quality of knowledge being learned
Example Body Paragraph Submission with Research for Week 6:
Greater access to technology can most certainly lead to more learning for children of all ages. In fact, a report on the need for more technology in the classroom written by the U. S. Department of Education (2010) noted, “Technology provides access to a much wider and more flexible set of learning resources than is available in classrooms and connections to a wider and more flexible set of educators” (para. 9). For instance, instead of reading about sharks in encyclopedias, first graders can now turn on a computer and go scuba diving with a diver off of the coast of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Such a learning experience is not only more memorable, it is more authentic and comprehensive. Details can be supplied in videos that would otherwise be two dimensional and lackluster in description can be brought to life in vivid detail through digital animations and recordings. In offering more technological devices to students, teachers can bring learning to life in ways that connect more concretely with students in order to both increase the breadth of knowledge acquired by students as well as the quality of knowledge being learned.
