Citing Your Work


You will likely have to do some research in order to develop a knowledgeable presentation. Before you begin, it is very important that you
properly credit any information you use in our presentation so that we do not plagiarize someone else’s work.

You are expected to properly paraphrase, and cite your work (both in-text and bibliography) in
order to avoid plagiarism!
Please ensure that you are properly citing your work. You MUST create a bibliography as you take information from websites and other
sources.
Citation: provides a way for you to credit others when you use their work in your papers or projects. It also gives your readers the
information necessary to find that source again.
Plagiarism: Plagiarism involves copying material, either word from word or as a paraphrase, from anything ranging from books, to
internet sites, course notes, oral or visual presentations, lab reports, computer assignments, or artistic works. It is considered a
form of fraud! It is also a violation of Chinook High School’s Academic Integrity Policy!
Paraphrase: Paraphrasing is using your own words to express someone else's ideas. If the wording of the paraphrase is too close to the
wording of the original, then it is plagiarism.

AS A GROUP answer the following questions. Feel free to do some research to help you.
1. What can we do we AVOID PLAGIARIZING someone else’s work?
In our project, we will be capturing real perspectives that are fresh and new, in the sense that any piece of information that is
used is authentic and personal. Our video will capture these perspectives and we will be sure to edit our website so that it
represents our goal correctly.
2. What can we do to properly give credit (cite) information we take from a source (ie. Book, video or website)?
Since our project is very domestic, it comes from a place inside. We will likely not need to have any other personal
information from outside sources.
3. What do you think citing your work “in-text” means? In what way do you think citing your work “in-text” brings “credibility” to
your information/evidence?
To cite a source means to give credit for the original source of information, so an in-text citation points the reader to your
reference list. This is called a reference citation. It gives you a chance to explain your work.
4. Do some research on how to format an APA format for creating a bibliography. Record the correct formats as indicated below:
