Demonstrate that you can paraphrase sources using proper parenthetical citations. For ALL writing assignments in Dr. Gunter’s classes: Avoid direct quotes; prove you understand the material by paraphrasing instead Cite using MLA parenthetical citations EVERY time you paraphrase info from a source Submit your typed work via Canvas; no paper, handwritten, or emailed copies Use the standard MLA header found at the OWL: https://bit.ly/2DDhTmd Must be typed, Times New Roman, 12-point font, & double spaced with 1-inch margins Indent 1 time to start new paragraphs; do not add line spaces between paragraphs You do NOT need a separate works cited page as you can ONLY use sources assigned in class REQUIRED: Richard Godbeer’s The Salem Witch Hunt, Introduction found in Perusall Reading 3 As you read Godbeer’s introduction, knowing that there were no actual witches at Salem, look for some of the reasons why the community may have falsely accused one person in particular. What made a person vulnerable to a false accusation of witchcraft? PROMPT: You and everyone who lives in your household/apartment have woken up in 1692, with the same socio-economic status, race, class, gender, etc and knowledge that you have in reality. Everyone thinks you and your household are Puritans in New England and that you belong there. You learn that the witch hunt is on. You know that there are no real witches and that accusations are not based in evidence, but you also know from Godbeer that some things can make you more vulnerable to a false accusation than others. In a diary entry, using your knowledge of Godbeer’s work, explain in organized body paragraphs at least three things that would make you vulnerable to a false accusation of witchcraft. Your diary should be written as yourself from the first person. You must cite Godbeer in each of these paragraphs as his work is how you know that these individual characteristics or circumstances would make you vulnerable. Do not make up events that did not/have not happen(ed). Instead consider what about you (and your identity) would make you vulnerable to a false accusation. CITATIONS: Each piece of information you take from Godbeer’s introduction should be cited at the end of the sentence it appears in with a parenthetical citation (Godbeer 10). If the evidence appears on multiple pages, it should be cited as follows (Godbeer 12-14 & 16). Remember to paraphrase Godbeer into your own sentence structure and vocabulary; do not directly quote Godbeer. BONUS POINTS: You may take your completed writing assignment to the Writing Center for extra credit if you choose and ask them to check that you have properly paraphrased Godbeer and written to the prompt. The Writing Center has virtual appointments.
