Citing sources

  1. 1. Citing and Documenting Sources
  2. 2. Works Cited & Bibliography • What is the difference? • A bibliography is a list of ALL the sources you used • The Works Cited page lists only the sources you cited in the body of the paper.
  3. 3. Formatting: • 1-All sources need to be in alphabetical order • 2-All sources need to be cited. • 3-All sources need to be double spaced • 4-You need to create a hanging indent in the paragraph menu in WORD or OPEN OFFICE. • (See mini Luna-lessons to see how to do this.)

  7. 7. Short Article: • Monkeys Afoot • The New York Times, December 8, 2002 • By MARIANNE ROHRLICH In the canon of stuffed animals, the red-mouthed (or red-bottomed) sock monkey holds an important place. Crafted from brown-and-white tweed work socks with red heels manufactured by the Nelson Knitting Company in Rockford, Ill., the rag dolls appeared in the early 1900's, made by women to supplement their income. This month, nearly 100 vintage sock monkeys are for sale in the American Folk Art Museum shop, 44 West 53rd Street in New York (212-265-1040), at the old- fashioned price of $36 each. Since each is made by hand, no two are alike: some have soulful embroidered eyes, others have button eyes and broad, smiling mouths. The monkeys come from Joshua Mack and Ron Warren, New York collectors, who own more than 1,800 of them. Their collection began in 1985 as ''a fluke,'' Mr. Mack said. ''I saw one monkey in a crafts shop in Hot Springs, Va., and that was how we started.'' The museum also sells a sock monkey kit ($13), for anyone who has a hankering to try his hand at some monkey business.
