  8. 8. What’s the difference between a citation and a reference? Redman (2001, p.81) describes a citation as an ‘abbreviated reference’. Citations are included in the text of the assignment.

Citations and references ‘allow the reader to consult and verify your sources of information’ (Pears & Shields, 2006, p.1). Burnard, P. (2004) Writing skills in health care .

  16. 16. Exercises-deliberate mistakes William Shakespeare: The Early Years The common belief that England’s greatest playwright, William Shakespeare, was born on St George’s Day, 21 st April, 1564, is perhaps too much of a coincidence to be true. As Groom et al point out though, there is reliable evidence that a boy named William, son of John Shakespeare, glove-maker, and Mary Arden, his Catholic wife of 7 years, was baptized on 26 th April of that year at Holy Trinity Parish church, Stratford-upon-Avon. Needs Date
  17. 17. Exercises-deliberate mistakes William Shakespeare: The Early Years (continued) Truerod (cited in Dickson, 2005) speculates that the young boy would’ve attended King’s New School, but Amanda Mibillard ( ) believes he would’ve begun his education around the age of six or seven at the Stratford Grammar school. Even less is known about Shakespeare’s early adulthood, though both Millibard (no date) and “Rough Guide to Shakespeare” (2005) think that he may have worked as a lawyer’s clerk, a schoolmaster, or even a butcher.
