Chapter 10: Joining the Conversation: Primary Sources, Secondary Sources, and You
In this chapter we will:
- Identify some of the common errors made when citing sources and discuss ways to avoid them.
- Discuss and demonstrate how best to use primary and secondary sources to support our claims.
- Work toward developing an essay that uses a specific example to further a larger scholarly discourse.
- Review the thesis and outline we created in Chapter 9 and decide which primary and secondary evidence we will be citing and when.
