What questions do you have about citing? DO you have questions??. In-text Citations. When using in-text citations, make sure to use the author last name if known. This is your first priority.
Example: (“Should Media”).
One question that researchers commonly propose is this: “Do video games really affect children mentally” (Johnson 4)?
There is evidence that shows why too much television is bad:
The April 2004 issue of Pedriatrics Magazine shows that too much television can produce increased anxiety,
fear, and even violence in children as young as three, and this has been documented on multiple occasions. (Leu par. 2)
Clearly television use must be monitored by parents and guardian figures to
show children what is appropriate.

Placement of the period
Every good paragraph that utilizes research should be set up like a sandwich:
Top bread: A topic sentence that introduces the idea
The filling: Research to support your idea
Bottom bread: Your analysis VERY IMPORTANT!
