By: Lauren and Emily 8B Why do we need to cite our sources?

We need to give credit where credit is due.

If we do not cite our sources we can be accused of plagerism.

Plagerism is when you take other peoples work and pass it off as your own.

People can get expelled from school and fired from jobs etc. A periodicals are souces of information that are published weekly, monthly, etc. such as newspapers or magazines. What is a Works Cited:

Works Cited is a document that gives credit to the sources people used. This prevents people from thinking they plagerized or copied someone else's work.It is always important to cite your works. How do you cite a periodical...

The first step is to cite the author. You give the last name first comma and then the author's first name period.

Then you give the name of the article in quotations followed by a period.
