Learning to Cite the Fun Way!
Why do we cite?
This is known as plagiarism. When someone else does all the work and someone else takes the credit without recognizing or mentioning the person who actually did all the work. This is why it is important to know how to cite images, videos, books, articles, and information you use to complete your own research or work. When you cite you are giving credit and allowing recognition of the person who did complete the work that you are borrowing.
What is in-text citation?
Here are a two examples:
- Women are always viewed as "being the weaker vessels" in all romantic tragedies (Shakespeare, Act 1, Scene 1).
- According to Sampson, women are viewed as "being the weaker vessels" even though Juliet is a strong woman (Shakespeare, 1597).
