Day 34- Synthesis Continued: Integrating PIE into Synthesis

Class Today:
Introduce the Final Unit: Individual Research Paper

What does PIE stand for?

What part is missing in this paragraph:

Papers are evil, evil assignments that should be eliminated from course requirements. Many students have difficulty balancing their schoolwork when they are overloaded with papers (Researcher, 2011). Because this can cause them to fall behind in some courses, it interferes with their learning. In addition, papers can negatively affect one’s health. Menendez (2013), a grad student, complained, “I feel so run down...I’ve been staying up late, working on papers, for two weeks straight” (p. 35). _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _. It is difficult to deny that papers do little to add to student learning, and may even do damage!

Now, individually, create a sentence for the paragraph.
