comment How can I get my students to better integrate their sources into their writing?
This is how I learned research as well, and still my basic approach although not as literally based on notecards - I wonder if it is too analog for Millennials... There must be a digital equivalent.

@MonicaCellio well there doesn't seem to be a run on answers :) so it certainly couldn't hurt to get your perspective.

comment How can I get my students to better integrate their sources into their writing?
@MonicaCellio I have not explicitly required that they share that so I am not sure in all cases. My guess is that the ones having the problem are not using much of a method at all but rather making a paper out of the first 5 - 6 sources they find, instead of collecting sources to understand and develop an argument around a topic. I have some ideas about how I might encourage more "exploration" of the source material but I was hoping to hear from some folks with experience.

comment How can I help a writing-phobic but competent student develop their writing?
Thanks for your answer, this is a good start and it is basically what I have tried already but I am looking for other suggestions bc this isn't working. Basically the student fails to complete the drafts (due to the obsession with perfection) and I have little leverage because they are willing to accept zeros on the assignments. I am hoping for some methods that will allow us to work up to drafts.

@LaurenIpsum that is an interesting suggestion, I had not thought of something like that. OR perhaps I could just get them to write out a script for their presentation as a starting point.

the interesting thing in this case is that the student basically is doing A+ work if they would just turn it in. But I do like the idea of focussing on what is OK as well as on what needs improvement. Also thanks for the link... that is helpful

@MonicaCellio good question. Interestingly the student does not and actually really enjoys giving presentations.
