For now, simply keep track of which quotes come from where so you won’t have to locate them down the line. This week, we will also learn to paraphrase from sources, which you may use with the three sources you submitted for approval last week. Also, remember that all of your writing is automatically submitted to a plagiarism checker. Therefore, please do not be tempted to cut and paste from the Internet. (The result will be an “F” on the essay.) Please read this carefully! I want to make sure everyone understands the assignments.
