CITATIONS

la_bibliography.gif
When we do research, we must tell where we got our information. We call this citing our sources, and we do this to avoid plagiarism. Click here for a good explanation of "What is Plagiarism ?" from KidsHealth, or to see a short video, Plagiarismby Common Craft. For an interactive explanation of copyright and guidelines, visit Copyright with Cyberbee.

In our school, we use MLA-7th Edition style citations.
