Bell ringer
  • Fear can be a great motivator. Do you think it
    is better to use fear as a motivator or kindness?

How to Quote
  • Quotations are the exact words of the source.
    Quotations should be surrounded by quotation
  • Example Quote "I really wish I could go to
    North Brother Island, but it is closed to the
    public" (Killy).

How to Paraphrase
  • Paraphrasing is where you write in your own words
    what the writer wrote in amount the same amount
    of words. You would not condense here as you
    would with doing summaries. Use quotation marks
    around any words that are not your own.
  • Example Paraphrase Ms. Killy wants to visit
    North Brother Island in New York, but cannot as
    access is restricted.

  • Summarize by condensing a large amount of
    information into a small amount of
    information.Should be written in your own words.
    Basically, you should start out with something
    longer and make it into something shorter. You
    write about what something mainly talks about.

  • If citing a source you need to include a
    bibliography that shows where you got your
    information from.
  • Should be in alphabetical order by authors name.
  • If there is no author for one work then put it
    after all of the other works.
  • If there is no author for multiple works put them
    after the other works and then those works goes
    in order by their titles.
  • Everything after the second line should have a
    hanging indent. To do a hanging indent you can
    just tab over one time,
  • like so.

In Text Citations
  • You should provide information in parentheses
    after the quote, paraphrase, or summary as to
    where the information came from.
  • This information should include the page number
    if there is one and the authors name.

In Text Citations
  • Example of in text citation It has been found
    that narwhals die from being enclosed in ice
  • If there is a name and a page number the name
    comes first and then the page number.
  • Example of in text citation It has been found
    that narwhals die from being enclosed in ice
    (Killy 12).
