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!
To create citations, use the EasyBib Add-on in Google Drive:
In CC Search you can search for images, videos, and music that are in the COMMON DOMAIN. In other words, the originators of this work have given over the rights to these items and have agreed to let anyone use them. Therefore, for these images, videos, and music pieces y ou need only link to this person's Creative Commons license, and you DO NOT have to cite the image, video, or music piece.
When you use information from other sources in your project, you need to give proper credit to those sources. CPHS students are asked to use APA style documentation.
You have two basic responsibilities:
1. In-text citations
Give the author (if there is one) or title (if no author is given) of the source in parentheses right after the information that comes from that source.
2. Works Cited page
List all the sources you used in your project. Entries must follow APA style (use a citation engine like BIBME or CITATION MACHINE to format the entries), and the entire list should be in alphabetical order.
