To show the audience you have researched your topic to provide accurate information The researched information is NOT your material You are not an expert
Summarize Paraphrase Direct Quotation
Shortened form of research May include snippets of quoted material Usually words or key phrases are quoted Must include reference to author, but since the summary is over the entire work, no page number is necessary
Allows author to put research in own words Author’s voice shows through Shows author has made sense of the information and can explain it Still gives credit to researcher

Should be used sparingly Only VITAL information should be quoted directly e.g. facts, statistics, important phraseology, etc. Words need to be shown EXACTLY as they appear in the original text or it is considered plagiarism Can stifle the author’s voice if used to often
X states, “__________.” As the world-famous scholar X explains it, “________.” As claimed by X, “______.” In her article _______, X suggests that “_________.” In X’s perspective, “___________.” X concurs when she notes, “_______.” Then EXPLAIN how the quotation supports what you are saying in your essay.
Rule #1: Incorporate all outside information into a sentence of your own. Research should never stand alone.
Rule #2: Include page numbers and references to the author of the material You may begin the researched material with the author’s name, or place it after the material with a page number in parenthesis.

Rule #3: Create a works cited page that corresponds to your in-text citations. WC page should look like your bibliography page except should only include research you actually used in your essay
