Citing Sources

Use Information Ethically!

Give Credit Where Credit is Due!

Cite Your Sources!

When you share your learning in any way, including writing, posters, or presentations both online and offline, it is important that you give credit to the work of others that may have helped you in your learning. Letting your audience know whose picture, idea, data or conclusion you have used allows them to follow-up for more information if they want to. It gives you credibility as a learner and researcher and it gives those other creators the credit they deserve.

Use the following tools to create a "Works Cited" list, a list of  "References" or a "Bitiliography". In the academic world, there are several styles that are used to cite sources. Your teacher can let you know which they would like you to use ie. APA, MLA, Chicago or others.
