How to Interpret Prompts : 

How to Interpret Prompts For the remainder of your academic career you will see and respond to various prompts Prompts can be discussion questions, writing assignments, presentations, essay responses, and more – essentially a prompt, prompts you to do something specific. Interpreting prompts is crucial to your success as a student! So let’s jump right in and get started.

How to Interpret Prompts : 

How to Interpret Prompts Here’s a prompt that could be used for a team project. Write a 1,050-to 1,450-word paper, in APA format. Address the following: Explain why ethics exist in an academic environment. Explain why your topic is relevant to modern-day academics. Discuss how your selected topic is impacted by and impacts ethics in an academic environment. Provide examples of your topic in an academic environment and the role(s) ethics play in the examples. Use at least 5 scholarly/academic references – from the University Library. Format your paper using APA formatting standards. Save your document as TeamName_Ethics_Paper Post your paper as an attachment to your Individual forum.

How to Interpret Prompts : 

How to Interpret Prompts When you begin to read the prompt ask yourself – what I am being told to do? In this prompt you are being told to write a paper between 1,050 and 1,450 words – that means the paper must be a minimum of 1,050 words (in the body not including references title page or headers) and a maximum or 1,450 words Write a 1,050-to 1,450-word paper, in APA format. Address the following: Explain why ethics exist in an academic environment. Explain why your topic is relevant to modern-day academics. Discuss how your selected topic is impacted by and impacts ethics in an academic environment. Provide examples of your topic in an academic environment and the role(s) ethics play in the examples. Use at least 5 scholarly/academic references – from the University Library. Format your paper using APA formatting standards. Save your document as TeamName_Ethics_Paper Post your paper as an attachment to your Individual forum.

How to Interpret Prompts : 

How to Interpret Prompts The prompt also contains some very specific instructions in terms of what the paper needs to cover So even though your paper has a topic you will still need to address these points within your paper – this does not mean that there is a section dedicated to each point but sometimes there can be, depending on the prompt For example – you can set the paper up your paper according to your topic, as you make each of your points you can address the parts of the prompt which pertain to the point you are addressing (this is the best way) Another way is to simply use the points you need to make as a skeleton outline, then center your topic around those points (this is good, especially if your topic relates well) Write a 1,050-to 1,450-word paper, in APA format. Address the following: Explain why ethics exist in an academic environment. Explain why your topic is relevant to modern-day academics. Discuss how your selected topic is impacted by and impacts ethics in an academic environment. Provide examples of your topic in an academic environment and the role(s) ethics play in the examples. Use at least 5 scholarly/academic references – from the University Library. Format your paper using APA formatting standards. Save your document as TeamName_Ethics_Paper Post your paper as an attachment to your Individual forum.

How to Interpret Prompts : 

How to Interpret Prompts What’s the difference? If you follow your point then your thesis statement makes points and you address the prompt as you address your thesis – So X is an issue because of x, y, z, and this is why ethics exist in an academic environment. If you follow the prompt then your thesis must outline each point from the prompt as well as how you will address them – so each of the components of the assignment have to be present in the thesis (yikes!). So it would be x is an issue because of a, b, and c as witnessed by the ethics which exist in academic environments, the impact X has had on the evolution of ethics for academic environments, and current events concerning X and ethical practices in an academic environment. Write a 1,050-to 1,450-word paper, in APA format. Address the following: Explain why ethics exist in an academic environment. Explain why your topic is relevant to modern-day academics. Discuss how your selected topic is impacted by and impacts ethics in an academic environment. Provide examples of your topic in an academic environment and the role(s) ethics play in the examples.

How to Interpret Prompts : 

How to Interpret Prompts Understanding the words in prompts, use the dictionary and look up the meaning of these words which commonly appear in assignment prompts, be sure to do what you are being told to do Analyze Evaluate Discuss Classify Define Compare and contrast Explain Persuade Prove or disprove Review of the literature Survey Summarize Identify Create

Quoting versus Paraphrasing : 

Quoting versus Paraphrasing Quoting material often interrupts the flow of your paper because other writer’s did not write the quote to fit into your paper with your unique topics. In order to ensure material flows with your point you should usually paraphrase material – note this still requires a citation and reference but not quotation marks Paraphrasing is essentially summarizing a passage or section of material and integrating it into your own work

Quoting versus Paraphrasing : 

Quoting versus Paraphrasing When paraphrasing you must be accurate, do not change the meaning of the passage from what the writer intended – this means you have to critically read and review the material before it can be used Quotes are used either when the material is too confusing or too well known to paraphrase. Quotes restate word for word what an author says and use quotation marks as well as a citation and reference. ALWAYS follow cited material with an explanation of what it means for your topic!

Example of a Quote : 

Example of a Quote As Jean Piaget has commented, “the principal goal of education is to create men who are capable of doing new things, not simply of repeating what other generations have done” (as cited in NIEHS, 2008). Failing to provide rigorous coursework and using effective instructional practices will result in increased downturns in the economy. Benjamin Franklin once said “the only thing more expensive than education is ignorance” (as cited in Brooks, 1999). Although Franklin’s sentiments may have at one time been taken seriously, today they are truer perhaps than when he delivered them. Popham (2006, p. 84) states, “What most of today’s educators’ know about education assessment would fit comfortably inside a kindergartener’s half-filled milk carton.”

Example of Paraphrasing : 

Example of Paraphrasing While his forward thinking was intended to strengthen the union, he inadvertently caused its demise. In 1988, Gorbachev, invites the United State President, Ronald Reagan to Moscow, Russia and shortly after proposes government changes which mirror parts of democracy over communism (BBC, 2007). Despite the government wanting to find a way to break Russia’s monopoly on fuel supply, the Turkmen government faces issues in developing the infrastructure and environmentally friendly means to do so (CIA, 2007). Super (1991), suggests that employees were not often employees first in their own minds but rather a combination of roles and titles which they experience throughout life. From these titles which vie for importance, priorities were set and behaviors displayed.
