Citing Support

When it comes to research it can often seem easier to actually read, record, and paraphrase than it is to cite the research we use! How many times do we try to help our students understand the correct ways to cite, only to be tangled up on our own words? Well, here is a link that may just be your (and your students') saving grace. It offers students an easy way to learn how to cite their sources. 

As you know, our students are very much aware of the importance of the practice.  (Ask just about any Buckner Bear and they'll be able to fill you in on how it's "stealing someone else's words to copy.") They really do understand why they need to do it, but actually understanding how to do it is another story altogether. These helpful tools & may just offer the modeling needed to make the format of citing sources manageable and--one day-- part of their schema.  

This is the citation that appears when you simply type in the Title or ISBN of the book!
