Summarize the video and article that you reviewed for this assignment and cite the summaries in APA style. (See Quoting, Paraphrasing, & Summarizing (Links to an external site.) and Citing Within Your Paper (Links to an external site.)). Compare and contrast the messages in the two web resources, including a comparison of subject, occasion, audience, purpose, and speaker (SOAPS) in each (See Action Words in Academic Writing (Links to an external site.) and Section 1.2 Understanding Context). Share what you learned from the materials this week and identify your confidence in (or concerns about) your role as a college-level writer. You are invited to share relevant audio, video, or images in your post.
Quick tip: Make sure you are *specifically* identifying SOAPS for *both* sources after you write your summary of each. My suggestion is actually to use bullet points or some other organizational tool as you discuss what you’ve found. For example:
Source #1 title Source #2 title
Sharing what you learned from each source and how you feel as a college-level writer is also an important part of your response, but it’s not the focus. The majority of your critical thinking will be demonstrated in your SOAPS analysis and source summary.
