First, I found this awesome chapter that is part of an open source textbook that is available for FREE to anyone on the internet! Entitled "Annoying Ways People Use Sources" this chapter is funny, and on point with its instruction. It explains multiple problems and offers examples and solutions. Many of my students after reading this article have been able to identify which ways they misuse source material. Click HERE for the free download.
In order for students to fully master how to cite their sources as well I point them towards the infamous Purdue OWL website. I love how easy the site is to navigate and how there is no extraneous information. This page, on how to cite quotations not only handles the formatting, but has examples that show strong introductions of quotes too! Click HERE to check out Purdue OWL.
I, like many teachers, use the acronym ICE when teaching quote integration. Students must learn to introduce, cite, and then explain the quotes and paraphrases that they use in their writing. I have come up with a few resources of my own that help remind students of these skills. First, I have a handout with suggested verbiage to help students get started. This one is FREE and comes with other handouts to help with students writing research papers! Click on the image to download on Teachers Pay Teachers!
