Write one sentence stating which part(s) of the articles and/or books that you might incorporate into your own paper (quotes, statistics, evidence, examples). Go back to
your own research question: how will this source help you answer your question? What parts of this source reinforce/strengthen my own thesis paragraph?
Example:
Reuben, Suzanne H. and the President’s Cancer Panel. 2008-2009 Annual Report: Reducing Environmental Cancer Risk, What We Can Do Now. Apr. 2010. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Web. 10 May 2010.
The President’s Cancer Panel discusses a wide range of man-made chemical causes for cancer. It is scientifically sound and based on a great deal of research and data. Important for my paper, the section at the end of the study recommends that people reduce their intake of pesticides and growth hormones often found in non-organic foods. In other words, in order to reduce one’s risk of developing cancer, the panel recommends eating organic food (among a number of other lifestyle changes).
