Serious offense! Easy to avoid – all you have to do is correctly cite your sources.When we copy other people’s information, we are not learning the research skills that we might need later to succeed.
When you quote or paraphrase from one of your sources within your paper, you MUST cite your source both in-text and on your references page.
When quoting, be sure to include the page number on which you found the quote.Using another person’s exact words is acceptable AS LONG AS you use quotation marks around the quoted words and properly cite the source.
This means rephrasing the words of someone else. It is acceptable AS LONG AS the meaning is not changed and the originator is credited properly with a citation. Notice for Paraphrase examples, there is no page number.
From your Research Logs that you’ve been turning in, you will need a total of 10 Sources for the Annotated Bibliography Final Project.At least 1 website, 1 book, and 1 database article. The composition of the rest of them is up to you.
All 10 sources must be in APA format with your summaries.I’m picky!
Choose 1 Article, 1 Book and 1 Website to write citations for.Each of the above should be DIFFERENT sources from what you just wrote citations for.Add summaries this week! Remember they should be 3-5 FULL sentences and should include why the source is relevant to your topic.

Paraphrasing<br />1. <br />Student achievement is partially obtained by the student focusing on desirable goals and outcomes (Miller, 2009).<br />2.<br />Miller (2009) establishes that goals and outcomes are extremely important elements in student achievement. <br />3.<br />In a 2009 article, Miller established that goals and outcomes are an important determinant of student achievement.<br />
