Citing Your Sources

Remember!

Plagiarism vs. paraphrasing vs. quoting

Any time you use information from a website, a


book, a magazine, a journal or any other source,
you MUST give credit to the author!

Today, you will be learning HOW to appropriately


give credit to the author.

It is not difficult, but it is a matter of using the right


tools and resources.
