Having completed the required module readings and viewed the video on Evaluating sources for credibility
from https://youtu.be/PLTOVoHbH5c, you should now be ready to identify scholarly
sources on your own. There are two-parts for this assignment.
Part I: Using the same topic you have chosen in SLP 1.
Identify 8-10 scholarly sources relevant to the topic. These should include primarily journal articles (at least 8),
but you may supplement these with books, book chapters, or government documents.
Compile a reference list using APA format—this is a requirement for this assignment.
Respond to the questions posed on the Evidence Analysis Worksheet, which can be found in the Background
Information section of this module.
Length: The written component of this part of the assignment should be 3-4 pages long (double-spaced).
Part II: Murray (2008) outlines six specific functions of academic writing. These include defining, describing,
comparing and contrasting, classifying, explaining causes and effects, and developing an argument. These are
used at different phases of the writing process.
Choose two functions of academic writing.
Using the Murray chapter as a guide, complete the following tasks relative to those functions.
Provide your written responses in a single document file, which you should upload by the end of this module.
Length: The written component of this part of the assignment should be 2-3 pages long (double-spaced).
