Finding the Best Sources

The best sources are going to be sources that provide unbiased, logical information. You want to make sure that your sources are credible (meaning, you don’t want to use a random blog or webpage created by someone who is not an expert on your topic.)

You want to use recent, relevant sources, so avoid using any sources over 7 years old, as things in this world change pretty quickly.

Books and scholarly articles written by experts are going to be your best sources for information. You can find scholarly journals/articles on the Lake Land College Library site. Put in a key word search. (play around with your search strings. Try different words and combinations of words until you find a source that has the information that you need.)

You are also able to use internet sources, but many of them are unreliable. If you must use an internet source, try to find sites that end in .org, .edu, or .gov. They will usually have the most reliable information. No Wikipedia.

If you are having trouble finding sources, let me know asap!!

Note taking Techniques

Note Cards

-You can write out your quotes, paraphrases or summaries. Make sure that you put the author’s name, source name, and page number (if available). This way, you can insert the in-text citation without having to go back and find which source it came from.

Advantage-You will be able to organize your note cards in the order that you will use them in your draft.


-As you review your sources, you can highlight important information that you want to incorporate into your essay. You can use different colors to highlight different points in your essay.

Word Document

-As you review your sources, you can open a Word document. As you find important information, you can decide whether to quote, paraphrase or summarize the source info. Then you can type it into a Word document, again, remembering to list the author’s name, source name and page number. You can have several pages, and type the information on the appropriate page for the subject matter.

Advantage-When you go to incorporate the information into your draft, you will be able to just cut and paste the information.

Integrating and Analyzing Quotes

*Take time to think about and analyze what you’re reading. Don’t just quote everything on note cards.

*Plagiarism is using others’ ideas or words as if they were your own. Taking their words and putting it into your own words is paraphrasing. It must still be marked as borrowed to avoid making it plagiarism, especially if exact works are taken from the original work.

*Summary: a reduction of longer material into some brief statement that captures a basic idea, argument, or theme from the original. Summaries must still be marked with an in-text citation.

Quotes: your essay should contain no more than 10 to 20 percent quoted material. When quoting make sure you are using it in the same context as the original author.

Introducing quotes:

*The author states, “Introducing quotes is important” (Smith 23).

*According to the author, “Quotes cannot stand alone in a sentence” (Smith 23).

*”A quote must have some kind of introduction,” or it will not be in the proper format (Smith 23).

*Sometimes authors “put the quote right in the middle of the sentence” so their ideas flow better (Smith 23).

When using a longer quote, one that is longer than four lines:

First, set it of with a colon. Then be sure to indent the long quote five spaces (or a tab). There is no need to put quotation marks around it. The reader will already know it is a long quote because it is indented. When writing your essay, try to limit the use of longer quotes. There should be no more than two in your 10 page essay. If you find you have more than that, try to paraphrase the information. Also notice on the longer quotes that the period comes before the in-text citation. (Smith 23)

*When entering an in-text citation, in parentheses, put the author’s last name and page number, followed by a period. ex. (Smith 23).

*If no page number is provided, just put the author’s last name. (Smith).

*If it is an article and no author’s name is given, use a condensed version of the title of the article. ex. (“No one is perfect” 5).

*Use this website as a guide* (Links to an external site.)

Resources for In-text Citations and Works Cited Page

Because this is an online class, you do miss out on the opportunity to have an in-class demonstration on in-text citations and a Works Cited page. However, there are many resources at your disposal.

First are the two books you were provided for this class: MLA Handbook and Keys for Writers. Everything you need to know will be in those books. You will have to look at the table of contents at the beginning of the books to find the examples that match up with your sources.

There is also a tremendous website that you can use. It is called the Owl at Purdue. The easiest way to get to the site is to Google: owl, purdue, mla. The first cite that comes up will be the one you will click on. It provides examples of in-text citations and a Works Cited page.

Helpful Hints-to help your grade

*Make sure the essay has a strong thesis statement. Make sure each body paragraph has a strong topic sentence.

*Take time to organize your thoughts clearly so that the essay is focused on the topic.

*Do not use any form of the word “you” (you, your, yourself, you’ve) in formal writing. You may use “you” when it is part of a direct quote. (To make sure the word “you” is not in the essay, on the keyboard, hit the Control key and the F key at the same time. In the box that comes up, type in the word you. It will then highlight any use of you throughout the essay. If it is part of a quote, you can leave it in, but if it is not, you need to change your wording). Because there is a way to check, if your final essay has the word “you” misused, you will fail the essay.

*Spell out contractions in formal writing. Ex. can’t should be cannot. (Each contraction will cost 10 points off of the grade of your essay. It does not take long for those points to add up).

*When making an argument, avoid phrases like “I think,” “I feel,” and “I believe,” They make your opinion look weak, and I know it is what you think because you are the one writing the essay. (Each use of these phrases will cost you 10 points off of the grade of your essay).

*Proofread several times.

Proofread once and check for format, title, spelling and word usage errors, you, contractions, I think phrases, awkward wording.

Then, proofread again and check for focus, content, organized thoughts, strong paragraphs, strong support, strong arguments and rebuttals.

Finally, proofread to eliminate ALL run-on sentences, comma splices and fragments. If an essay has more than five run-ons, comma splices and fragments combined, the best grade (with no other errors) you can receive is a 60%.

*Make revision a top priority. If you find errors, do not make a quick fix, especially if the errors have to do with content and focus. Some portions may need to be re-written in order to turn in the best version of the essay as possible.

Please email me if you have questions. Remember 50 points of your essay will come from in-text citations and Works Cited page.
