LSS 5100 Unit II Practice Citations


Using a sample paragraph and its list of resources, you will practice inserting in-text citations and constructing properly formatted reference citations. The sample paragraph contains direct quotations, paraphrases, and summaries. Insert the in-text citations where they are required. Be sure to include the appropriate information for each type of in-text citation. Finally, convert the source information below the excerpt into properly formatted APA Style reference citations.


Sample Paragraph:


Strauss concludes that “the moral is that unless we show faculty members how technology can meet their needs, they won’t consider using it.” While studying what community college faculty needed to incorporate technology into their instruction, Quick and Davies found faculty needed time, money, software, classroom computers (professor podium), department computer lab, and faculty technical support and training. In discussing how to prepare college faculty for the incoming ‘Net generation of students, Clayton-Pedersen and O’Neill claim that “much of the learning technology innovation in higher education has been focused on K–12 teacher preparation and development” and that “more focus needs to be placed on preparing existing faculty for the future ‘Net Generation students who will populate the twenty-first century classroom.” They continue that call for action in claiming that “faculty’s understanding of the teaching and learning power of technology needs to be increased” and “tools need to be developed to help faculty integrate technology into the curriculum.” Strauss, Quick and Davies, and Clayton-Pedersen and O’Neill demonstrate that faculty first needs blatant introductions to the new technologies themselves: what they are and what they can do.

LSS 5100 Unit II Discussion Board Part I and II (***** 4 Pages + Original + References *****)


There are two parts to the Unit II Discussion Board. To receive full credit, be sure to address both questions for both parts in your response.  There are a total of four (4) questions.

Part I:

In Unit I of this course, you read three online articles, 4 Time Management Tips for Online Students, How to Be a Good Online Learner, and Time Management 101 for Online Students.

1.    Which article do you feel was the most helpful to you as an online graduate student? Why?


2.      Which tip or technique do you feel you will implement as you continue through your program?


Part II:

Anticipating change, considering multiple viewpoints, questioning traditions and assumptions, and addressing problems proactively requires strong critical thinking skills. Without them, people can appear vulnerable or simply less than their best. The development of critical thinking skills is vitally important to success in any profession, as well as being a contributing member of society. The call for educational institutions to develop critical thinkers comes in part from employers (Casner-Lotto & Barrington, 2006) and in part from researchers in the field who are aware of the integral role of critical thinking skills in the ability to survive and thrive as a democratic society (Facione & Facione, 2007).

First, read the attached article A Practical Guide to Critical Thinking and then prepare an answer to these questions, in paragraph form:

·         In your own words, how does one “adopt the attitude of a critical thinker?”


·         What are some critical thinking hindrances you have encountered recently?
