6 Documenting your sources APA style YOUR DOCUMENTED ESSAY

7 Which essay pair will you choose? What strong central argument will you develop? 7

8 3 8

9 Sample arguments for Essay Pair #1 Which is more important: the public good or individual well being when looking at paying taxes and getting married? ~ Why pay taxes? Why get married? This essay will explore the advantages and disadvantages of each, and show how they both contribute to fulfilling societal needs. 9

10 Your writing normally includes 3 types of material 1. Your ideas 2. Your summaries of others ideas and facts ( paraphrases ) 3. Quotations from your sources (MLA Handbook, 2009)

11 Why acknowledge your sources? 1. Avoid plagiarism and its penalties. 1. Add weight to your statements by citing authorities that support you views. 2. Enable your readers to pursue the topic further, &/or evaluate your use of others work.

12 When do you not need to acknowledge a source? You need to acknowledge the source of an idea unless it is common knowledge in your subject area. The sky is blue is common knowledge. When in doubt, cite! 12

13 APA Style How to cite your sources & format your papers American Psychological Association Provides rules and guidelines for citing your sources in-text and in your references list and formatting ( stylistics )

14 cc by futureatlas.com 14

15 Example of a paraphrase (See rule in APA Manual, p. 171) [Word doc] Marriage in the future will become less central to the lives of adults. You got this statement from a book, by S. L. Nock

16 Example of a paraphrase (See rule in APA Manual, p. 171) [Word doc] In-text citation: Marriage in the future will become less central to the lives of adults (Nock, 2009, p. 302). According to APA, adding page number is optional for paraphrases - Centennial Libraries recommends inclusion

17 Example of a simple quotation fewer than 40 words (See rule in APA Manual, p. 171) [Word doc] In-text citation: According to some, marriage in the future will be less central as a defining event in the life course of adults than it is in the present (Nock, 2009, p.302). According to APA, adding page number is mandatory when using a quotation.

18 [Word doc] Example of a simple quotation with fewer than 40 words (See rule in APA Manual, p. 171) This variation is also correct. In-text citation: Nock believes that current trends indicate that marriage in the future will be less central as a defining event in the life course of adults that it is in the present (2009, p.302).

19 [Word doc] Example of quotation 40 or more words (See rule in APA Manual, p. 171) Most research indicates that Americans see marriage as a positive value; for example: The market generates distinctions based on marital status because those willing to marry are viewed as more valuable. This has little to do with the law. Indeed, it contradicts the law. Like the market, countless other social forces are involved in creating distinctions among people that reflect their marital and parental statuses. Those who wish to reduce inequalities associated with marital status should be modest in their expectations about the impact of change on the institution of American marriage. (Nock, 2009, p. 321)

20 References (APA) Listed alphabetically at the end of your paper Each reference you cite in-text must appear in the References list, and each entry in the References list must be cited in-text. (APA Manual, p. 174) [Word doc] 20

21 [Word doc] Example of a short in-text citation that is a secondary source (See APA Manual, Section 6.17, p. 178) Reginald Smithson suggests that if marriage implies valuable traits about individuals, then those who are married may enjoy benefits that their unmarried counterparts do not. You are quoting from Reginald Smithson - who was quoted in Nock s book (the book you were reading.)

22 [Word doc] Example of a short in-text citation that is a secondary source (See APA Manual, Section 6.17, p. 178) In-text citation: Reginald Smithson suggests that if marriage implies valuable traits about individuals, then those who are married may enjoy benefits that their unmarried counterparts do not (as cited in Nock, 2009, p. 300). You cite an author (Smith) here. You did not actually see Smith s publication. You saw it cited in Nock s book that you did read.

23 [Word doc] Example of a reference that is a secondary source (See APA Manual, Section 6.17, p. 178) References Nock, S.L. (2009). The growing importance of marriage in America. In H. Peters & C. Dush (Eds.), Marriage and family : Perspectives and complexities (pp ). New York, NY: Columbia University Press. Retrieved from ProQuest ebrary. Your reference is for the book chapter you actually read.

24 [Word doc] Putting it all together: In-text citation & Reference Example of a secondary source citation In-text citation: Smith suggests that if marriage implies valuable traits about individuals, then those who are married may enjoy benefits that their unmarried counterparts do not (as cited in Nock, 2009, p. 300). References list: Nock, S.L. (2009). The growing importance of marriage in America. In H. Peters & C. Dush (Eds.), Marriage and family: Perspectives and complexities (pp ). New York, NY: Columbia University Press. Retrieved from ProQuest ebrary. Pp

25 What does the APA Publication Manual say about secondary sources? Use secondary sources sparingly, for instance, when the original work is out of print, unavailable through usual sources, or not available in English. ~ APA Publication Manual, 6 th edition, Section 6.17, p

30 APA style is also about appearance (format): How important is appearance? Source: Source: 30

31 Appearance - if not everything is important Appearance really is everything. I asked over 70 current and aspiring business owners and business leaders a simple question of what the first thing they noticed upon meeting someone for the first time. Non-Appearance answers centred around authenticity, punctuality, hand-shake and energy. But by far the greatest number of answers centred around appearance. Face, smile, eye-contact, body-language, bodyshape along with style and appropriateness of dress. Gary Chaplin, Executive Employment Recruiter Source: 31

62 What we do know How Facebook News Feeds work They are customized you get news that Facebook thinks you will like (based on your profile and track record). 62
