Works Cited

Today we will work together to cite the sources we used for the "Olympics" research paper. Citing your sources is an important part of a research paper. You are making sure to give detailed information about the sources you used for the information you included in your paper.

First, click here to see an example of a completed WORKS CITED page. Then follow the directions below to cite each source you used to gather information for your research paper.

Example of Works Cited page: 
Works Cited Page Sample

SOURCE ONE
The first source was the World Almanac article in the 6th grade textbook. We will cite the textbook in this case. To cite a book, you need the following information typed/written out in this specific format:

the last, first name of the author, Book title (pp.  .) Publisher, Year Published. 

Example: Pascal, Janet. Who Was Abraham Lincoln?. Grosset & Dunlap, 2008.

Open the first few pages of your textbook and see what information you can find. Since this is a large book with many authors, we will use only the first one this time for practice. Can you find the rest of the needed information? Write down a citation following the example above. Add (pp.   ) that the article was located on after the name of the textbook since we only used a few pages.

SOURCE TWO

Open the Scholastic Go article we used for the second source. Follow directions below to type/write a citation for the article.

https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/articles/teaching-content/history-olympic-games/

For internet sources, you will need to include the following information on your card:

the author - if appropriate, "Title of the article (your person)," The title of the web site, and the date of publication

Example: John Smith, "Abraham Lincoln-Early Years." Nussbaum Education Network, LLC., 2014. <https/www.nussbaum.org/abrahamlincoln/>

(This is not complete MLA format, but it is sufficient for the purposes of this assignment.)

SOURCE THREE

For your third source, we browsed the website: 

https://www.olympic.org/

If you used information from a particular section, please go to that page or article to make your citation. If you used information from different parts of the website, you can use the main URL (web address) to create your citation. 

the author - if appropriate, "Title of the article," The title of the web site, and the date of publication

Example: "Abraham Lincoln-Early Years." Nussbaum Education Network, LLC. 2014

(This is not complete MLA format, but it is sufficient for the purposes of this assignment.)
