Post a New Question

Posted by on .

hey the work i did is on the bottom bottom

Each of the following exercises shows the original source, and then a student’s sentence and/or citation about that source. Each sentence and each citation has at least one thing wrong with it (most have more than one). Correct each of them

Source C: An article in the Chicago Tribune entitled “Happiness is Contagious, New Study Finds.” It was written by Judith Graham and published in the December 4th edition. No page number is listed, but it’s in the “Health” section. The website is;

Original Paragraphs:

You may think your attentive spouse, your loving children, and your good friends are what make you happy. But something else may be going on: The people they're connected with are making you happy too.

So suggests a new study proposing that happiness is transmitted through social networks, almost like a germ is spread through personal contact. The research was published Thursday in BMJ, a British medical journal.

It's the latest in a growing body of work investigating how our social connections--neighbors, friends, family, co-workers, fellow congregants at church and other associates--affect us. The premise is that we live in a social environment that shapes what we do and how we think and feel.

7. Student’s Sentence:

A 2008 study suggested that happiness can be spread “like a germ through social networks of friends and family” (Graham 1)

8. Student’s Sentence:

You might believe that your loving husband or wife, your doting progeny, and your intimate associates create your happiness. It may be that something else is going on: their intimate associates might be having an effect on you, too (Graham).

9. Student’s Works Cited Citation:

Judith Graham. “Happiness is Contagious, New Study Finds.” Chicago Tribune.c o m. Chicago Tribune, December 4, 2008. December 16, 2008.

    Read and study carefully; pay attention to EVERYTHING, including punctuation and spaces; make corrections and re-post when you're ready:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Signed newspaper article:
    Omit an initial "The" in newspaper titles. Notice there are no commas in the date construction.
    For the Works Cited Page
    Huffstutter, P.J. "Music Rights Get Tangled on the Web." Hartford Courant 31 May 2000, eastern ed.: A1+.
    Notice that the "+" indicates that the article is carried over onto subsequent pages (but not necessarily the next page). The exact page of a citation will be indicated parenthetically.

    In-text Citation
    "Federal law says that when an Internet service provider gets a complaint about a person allegedly breaking copyright law, the ISP must remove that user from its service" (Huffstutter A5).

    hey but my article dosnt have a page number listed.

  • english - ,

    Judith, Graham. “Happiness is Contagious New Study Finds." Tribune December 4, 2008. December 16, 2008.

    It's OK if there's no page number. Whenever there's a situation like this in the source you're citing, you just omit what's missing. No reference to it at all.

    What you wrote above is almost correct! Here's the correct version if you're citing from the newspaper itself:

    Judith, Graham. “Happiness is Contagious New Study Finds." Chicago Tribune December 4, 2008.

    But if you're citing from the webpage, it's different. Let me know...
