Yes, you need to put quotation marks around all phrases and sentences that you have copied directly from another source.
Did you read through the commnet.edu page I included called "plagiarism"? One of the best things about that particular page is that it teaches you and gives you examples of how to NOT plagiarize!!! Be sure to read it all, and let me know if you have any questions about any sections in there.
Also, here is what I have put together to teach students how to reference and cite properly. This is following MLA guidelines, but APA is similar.
You need to have each source of information cited in TWO places:
1. the Works Cited page that is placed after the last page of your paper, and
2. in parentheses in the text of your paper, immediately after the quotation or paraphrase.
For example, this would go on the Works Cited page (with proper indentation for the second and following lines):
Du Bois, W.E.B. The Souls of Black Folk. Chicago, 1903. Project Bartleby. Ed. Steven van Leeuwen. Dec. 1995. Columbia U. 2 Dec. 2003
... and this would go immediately after the quotation or whatever:
The information in parentheses in the text needs to be as brief as possible. That's why there's a Works Cited page – for all the details of the listing.
Here's a good place for information on citing in MLA format:
Hold your cursor over the words CITING SOURCES in the left column and then click on whatever type of source you need help with. Many examples will show up. You will get two examples for each type of reference – one for the Works Cited page and one for the parenthetical (in-text) citation.
You can also see what a Works Cited page looks like – click on Sample Works Cited in the left column.
If you need to cite in APA or another format, go here:
In the column at the left, scroll down until you see the different topics on evidence and the different styles (MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.).
This will help you with APA bibliographies.
Also for APA.
Let me know what you think. Re-post sections of your paper that you'd like to have re-checked.
