EVIDENCE
> helps the writer support the reason being presented
> Evidence can be found through:
> facts
> annecdotes
> analogies
> The best way to use the evidence for your reasons is to cite it properly.
What is citing?
= giving credit for using someone's work
Why cite?
We cite for the following reasons:
To respect the work of others
To help the reader look for the source out of interest
To show that we can use sources and analyze them
To show that we can draw our own conclusions
establish the credibility and authority of our knowledge and ideas
To share blame (if we are wrong)
When you use someone else's ideas, you mention
their names next to their idea and in
a "Works Cited" page.
What do you cite?
any kind of text
(textbook, newspaper, magazine article, journals, etc.)
anything multimedia
(artwork, visuals, audio, videos, graphics, etc.)
anything speech-related
(speeches, lectures, interviews, etc.)
This includes any online videos, articles, and pictures!
How do you cite?
Almost always:
(author's last name, page number)
Remember to put the
citation at the end of the quote!
Example Phrases:
For example,
For instance,
In fact,
> Here is an example of evidence being shown:
Secondly, teenagers drop out mainly because of unexpected circumstances,
for instance
, pregnancies. It has been stated that "the drop out rates among pregnant teens is 90 percent"
(

Another way to present evidence:
Teenagers drop out of school because of unexpected circumstances.
An example

of such would be
pregnancy
.
According to
Teen Pregnancy Statistics
, "teen pregnancy is the number one reason for teens dropping out of high school prior to graduation"
(1)
.
If there is no author:
(title of reference, page number)
Since the article does not have the author shown, the reference title is used.
If you mention the reference title at the
beginning of your example, you do not need to put it in the citation.
