Your response to this discussion is 
due by this week Friday at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST).

You are also asked to respond to at least one other student in the class on his or her response.

Your 
response to your fellow student is due by this week Sunday at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST).

This discussion topic is designed to provide you the opportunity to examine a Six-Source Essay and a Multi-Source Essay/Literature Review written by previous students in WRTG 391.  Exploring a set of papers in this way can help you crystallize your thoughts and hone in on your topic as you complete your literature review for this class.

In 
the Week 7 Learning Resources, on page 3, you will sample sets of papers for WRTG 391 from previous students. These sets of papers are grouped into topic areas, with three (3) papers in each set. Please 
download 
one set 
of three papers.  Peruse the Six-Source Essay and Multi-Source Essay/Literature Review papers in the set.  Then 
answer the following questions:

1. Did the student expand his or her topic from the Six-Source essay to the Multi-Source essay? Or did the student narrow his or her topic from the Six-Source Essay to the Multi-Source Essay/Literature Review?

2. Compare the Six Source Essay to the Multi-Source Essay. What challenges do you think the student encountered as he or she proceeded from the initial essay to the final paper?

3. In the literature review, did the student cite more than one source in each category? Comment on one of the categories and describe how the student synthesized the sources.
