  1. 1. Says Who? <br />The big, bad world of in-text citations.<br />
  2. 2. Why Cite Your Sources?<br />You demonstrate how well-informed you are, which gives your thesis authority and credibility.<br />No one can accuse you of plagiarism.<br />It’s the college way. <br />Per Tom McQuade: NOT citing sources = failing grade.<br />
  3. 3. How To Cite Your Sources<br />Want to avoid sounding repetitive? There are a variety of ways to cite your source.<br />
  4. 4. We Cite Our Sources Too<br />The following slides contain examples from the essay “A Call to Action: Regulate Use of Cell Phones on the Road.”<br />
  5. 5. Create Your Own Cheat Sheet!<br />During this presentation, please take notes in the spaces provided. <br />Later, use these notes to help you as you write your own paper.<br />Yes, your notes will be collected for a grade. <br />
  6. 6. Punctuation Rules<br />In general, the period is placed after the parentheses. <br />For example, the Senior Thesis might be the greatest assignment ever created (MacSwan 2).<br /><ul><li>However, after block quotes, the period goes before the parentheses.</li></li></ul><li>The Foundation: Citing a Book <br />For a book with one author:<br />The National Traumatic Stress Network proposes creating a new Institute of Child Abuse and Interpersonal Violence within the National Institute of Health (NIH) to focus and coordinate research on the causes, consequences, treatment and prevention of child abuse (Almond 73). <br />For two or three authors: <br />(Johnson and Smith 13) or (Brown, Smith, and Williams 341).<br />For sources with more than three authors:<br />(Cordero et al. 45).<br />
  7. 7. Sources Without Authors<br />Note: this slide is not on your notes sheet.<br />The last form of abuse is called exploitation. This means forcing a child to do something illegal (“Child Maltreatment – Psychological Abuse”). <br />“Child Maltreatment – Psychological Abuse.” Gale Group. 2010. Health and Wellness. Gale Group. 12 April 2010. <http://galenet.galegroup.com>.<br />
  8. 8. Internet Article (Author & Speaker)<br /> Morgan’s mother, Patti Pena, reports that the driver “ran a stop sign at 45 mph, broadsided my vehicle and killed Morgan as she sat in her car seat.” A week later, corrections officer Shannon Smith, who was guarding prisoners by the side of the road, was killed by a woman distracted by a phone call (Besthoff).<br />
  9. 9. Newspaper (Author & Speaker)<br />Frances Bents, an expert on the relation between cell phones and accidents, estimates that between 450 and 1,000 crashes a year have some connection to cell phone use (Layton C9).<br />
  10. 10. Block Quote Example<br />By comparing the time of a collision with the phone records, the researchers assessed the dangers of driving while phoning. The results are unsettling:<br /> We found that using a cellular telephone was associated with a risk of having a motor vehicle collision that was about four times as high as that among the same drivers when they were not using their cellular telephones. This relative risk is similar to the hazard associated with driving with a blood alcohol level at the legal limit. (456)<br />
  11. 11. Example with the author’s name in the preceding sentence<br />Using police records, John M. Violanti of the Rochester Institute of Technology investigated the relation between traffic fatalities in Oklahoma and the use or presence of a cell phone. He found a nine fold increase in the risk of fatality if a phone was being used and a doubled risk simply when a phone was present in a vehicle (522-23).<br />
  12. 12. A source citing another source<br /> Even a spokesperson for Verizon Wireless has said that statewide bans are preferable to a “crazy patchwork quilt of ordinances” (qtd. in HaughneyA8).<br />
  13. 13. Author & Source credited in-text<br /> In 1997, an important study appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine. The authors, Donald Redelmeier and Robert Tibshirani, studied 699 volunteerswho made their cell phone bills available in order to confirm the times when they had placed calls. The participants agreed to report any nonfatal collision in which they were involved.<br />
  14. 14. Comparison for contrast<br />The driver who killed Morgan Pena in Pennsylvania received two tickets and a $50 fine—and retained his driving privileges (Pena).In Georgia, a young woman distracted by her phone ran down and killed a two-year-old; her sentence was ninety days in boot camp and five hundred hours of community service (Ippolito J1).<br />
  15. 15. Citing more than one source at a time<br />While some distracted drivers receive monetary fines, others are asked to complete community service (Pena, Ippolito J1).<br />
  16. 16. Example paragraph—page 5<br />As of December 2000, twenty countries were restricting use of cell phones in moving vehicles (Sundeen 8). In the United States, it is highly unlikely that legislation could be passed on the national level, since traffic safety is considered a state and local issue. To date, only a few counties and towns have passed traffic laws restricting cell phone use. For example, in Suffolk County, New York, it is illegal for drivers to use a handheld phone for anything but an emergency call while on the road (Haughney A8). The first town to restrict use of handheld phones was Brooklyn, Ohio(Layton C9). Brooklyn, the first community in the country to pass a seat belt law, has once again shown its concern for traffic safety.<br />
  17. 17. Activity<br />Find a partner. <br />Read the sample essay. <br />On the provided handout, identify at least five different types of in-text citations. Be sure to explain what makes each one unique.<br />
