Works cited

Documentations within your paper: the most important part of your research paper

Without it, you have either plagiarized or made up your information.

SO WHAT DO YOU DO??


Works cited

Signal Phrases!!

They tell the reader that this part of your paper is drawn from a source.

They also tell the reader that they can find the source in the list of works cited.


Works cited

There are varying ways to write a signal phrase. Let’s try one :

Here, I chose to introduce my source with the author of the article.

According to Rust and Clark in their article “How to Do Action Research in Your Classroom,” “Action research is a rather simple set of ideas and techniques that can introduce you to the power of systematic reflection on your practice” (3).

Here, I took an entire sentence out of my source.


Works cited

Let’s try another way, without naming the author in a signal phrase:

In the article, “How to Do Action Research in Your Classroom,” “Action research is a rather simple set of ideas and techniques that can introduce you to the power of systematic reflection on your practice” (Rust and Clark 3).

Parenthetical reference includes a page number


Works cited

Or what if you’re only taking part of the sentence or you’re omitting some words?

Then we use ELLIPSIS (three periods with spaces in between) to quote condensed passages

Kelly Gallagher in Reading Reasons argues that “…Reading not only makes you smart, it keeps you smart…” (26).

See page 12 for punctuation rules


Works cited

In the internet website, www.google.com/ig, it states that “you can make your own website according to your own preference.”

According to Valerie Enciso in an interview conducted April 7, 2008, she tells me that “dentistry is fun and exciting.” She also argues that “dentistry is really cool.”


Works cited

For tomorrow and Wednesday, you will have time to write your rough draft in the computer lab.

Let’s take a look at the format of a paper on the third page
