WHEN DO I CITE?
There are two main ways to include quotations in your work. The first, and most common is to use direct quotations of what someone said or wrote. The second is to paraphrase what someone said or wrote. Both ways always require the mandatory embedded citation.
THE QUOTE RULES
Introduce your quote; using variety is good.
Always include an embedded citation.
Explain why / how the quote is important.
Use proper punctuation.
Ms Quennell said, "You must always add an embedded citation when including information from outside sources after the quotation marks" (Quennell, 2012).
The on-line Source It document that the PDSB requires students to use indicates that, "The embedded citation specifically identifies an item in the Works Cited page" (Source It, 2012).
