									CITE IT!
     What is “Citing”?
• Whenever you add someone else’s
  idea to your piece of work, you must
  RECOGNIZE that person’s
  contributions!
• Why?
          Plagiarism
• Plagiarism means: "to steal and pass
  off (the ideas and words of another)
  as one's own“
  (http://www.wisc.edu/writing/Handb
  ook/QuotingSources.html)
• Do not take credit for words that
  are not your own!
  How Do I Give Others
     Their Credit?
• Did someone else really say it
  better? PARAPHRASE or QUOTE
  them!
• What is the difference between
  paraphrasing and quoting?
       Paraphrasing
• A paraphrase is a SUMMARY of what
  someone else has said.
• Example: “Mr. Smith said that he
  thinks monkeys are the coolest
  animals.”
  How Do I Paraphrase?
• If you like someone else’s point, try
  to summarize what that person has
  said.
• Look away from the source and try to
  put it into your own words.
• BUT, be careful to give that person
  his or her credit!
           Quoting
• A quote is an exact copy of what
  someone else has already said.
• For example: “Mr. Smith said,
  ‘Monkeys are by far the most
  interesting species to me.”
• How does that differ from Mr.
  Smith’s paraphrased idea before?
     How Do I Quote?
• Quoting is easy! You just have to
  write down exactly what the other
  person said – WORD FOR WORD.
• Signal that a quote is coming:
  – Use the author’s name, OR
  – Name the piece of work you are quoting
How Do I Decide Between
Paraphrasing and Quoting?
• Use direct quotes SPARINGLY – your
  audience wants to hear what YOU
  have to say!
• Use direct quotes only when you
  absolutely could not have said it
  better yourself.
• Try not to rely on the ideas of
  others—use their ideas to draw your
  OWN conclusions and ideas!
