Ethical Research Info-graphic
You can cite the source after each fact you put by adding author and page number or author and title. Also you can make something called a bibliography which is the same thing as a works cited page. A bibliography is a page of the sources you used to write your paper. When making your bibliography put it in alphabetical order by the page title, if it starts with numbers then that comes first. There is also something called an annotation and that's where you put a description of the source and how you used it in your paper, annotations go under the citation.
Getting reliable information
What to search for when researching
Quoting, Paraphrasing, Summarizing
EX: Heavy rain hit North Carolina due to a storm flood.
Quotes: Using the exact words from the author. When you quote you have to add quotation marks around it ( " " ). Also try not to use too many quotes in your writing.
EX: "Heavy rain continues to slam South Carolina after a powerful storm flooded much of the state over the weekend" said Time for Kids magazine
Summarizing: When summarizing use only the main idea from the paragraph/article, don't use too many details.
EX: The Fault in Our Stars is about teenage girl Hazel who has cancer and falls in love with her friend from therapy, Augustus Waters.
With either of these methods of using information you will always have to cite.
Do I cite it?
Something that I come up with---Nope, that's your own idea you don't need to cite it
Observations--You did it, don't cite it
If I paraphrase, summarize, or quote-- Always cite that
Something I saw in a book-- You read it you cite it
