Unit 4: Using The Work Of Others
A well-placed quote can make all the difference when you are making an argument. A quote can convince your reader that other respected, intelligent individuals have shared your perspective; it can argue your point with winning style or rhetorical power; it can prop up your argument where you may need help; and so forth. This unit will teach you how to use the work of others in order to strengthen your argument while ensuring that you avoid letting others take the spotlight. This unit will also address the problem of plagiarism--and how and why to avoid it at all costs.
Completing this unit should take you approximately 16 hours.
