3.6. Personal Reflection
Discussions
Having unreliable and ineffective sources results from not using writing devices. This
week’s discussions helped me understand how to find credible and useful sources by conducting
systematic searches on different topics on Google Scholar. I realized that by relying on the
standard search tools, I was accessing many sources, which limited my ability to select credible
and reliable sources. I was also unable to tailor my search to scholarly articles because of the
large number of unfiltered results. As Jeffrey Pfeffer traces causes in ‘Lay off the Layoffs,’ I was
able to trace the causal chain by looking through the effects of systematic searches using the
writing devices. In future research, I will use Google scholar because it allows systematic
searches in a database of scholarly articles.
Assignments
In my research paper, which draws from Wilbert Rideau’s “Why prisons don’t work”
essay, I was able to pinpoint the cause of ineffective prison systems and underline the effects this
has on society. Rideau’s approach proposes a solution after analyzing the problem, its causes,
and its effects. I used this approach to help formulate my thesis statement as I listed all the
current effects of the present prison policies and analyzed for the causes, in Rideau’s work and
other sources.
