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: chicagotribune.c o m/features/health/chi-081204happiness,0,6297377.story

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.

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

    "A 2008 study suggested that happiness can be spread like a germ through social networks of friends and family” (Graham 1)
    Do you see what is missing at the very end?

    8.
    "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).
    Excellent!

    Is this from an actual newspaper (printed on paper)? Or is it from the newspaper's website?

    Example for actual newspaper ~~> Signed newspaper article:
    Huffstutter, P.J. "Music Rights Get Tangled on the Web." Hartford Courant 31 May 2000, eastern ed.: A1+.
    (Broken Link Removed)

    Example for newspaper website ~~> Article in an Online Journal:
    Fitter, Chris. "The Poetic Nocturne: From Ancient Motif to Renaissance Genre." Early Modern Literary Studies 3.1 (Sept. 1997): 60 pars. 4 Mar. 2004
    <www.humanities.ualberta.ca/emls/03-2/fittnoct.html>.
    (Broken Link Removed)

    Right now, the two are mixed up. You'll need to revise it slightly, depending on whether it's supposed to be referring to a website or a real newspaper.

    Yes, #7 is now correct. Nice!

    For #9, I'd use the website, yes, since that is what is given in the instructions. But you need to give all the information in the instructions, including the entire URL, not just the one that gets to the homepage.
