Pros

  • A handy review of the writing process begins the lesson
  • A brief discussion of how to pull information from multiple sources is a good reminder that research should not all come from one document
Cons

  • The instructor puts text from the notes in her own words, yet does not go through the thought process of how she did this, so young writers may need a bit more support in understanding how to paraphrase
