Information your teacher wants!!!


What’s a bibliography?

Why do I need to cite my sources?

  • To document your sources and give credit to the authors, or people you used for your research.

When and where do I do this?

  • Your references should be cited at the end of your research paper.

  • When? It’s a good idea to do it as you go, so you are not overwhelmed doing it all at the end.
