CPHS_IB Social Studies 12 - Historical Investigation: Source Citation

The purpose of this guide is to provide IB Social Studies students assistance with their research project. Standards Met: 11.14.7.7, 11.14.8.8, 11.14.9.9

Why?

We will be using APA style for this project. Why? It doesn't really matter! You will use whatever style the person grading the paper asks you to use, so it is important that you know what is being asked of you, where to find the information you need to format correctly, and that you do it right!

Hands-down the best resource for citations and style help is Purdue University's Online Writing Lab (OWL). It's a lifesaver!
