Each of the following exercises shows the original source, and then a student’s sentence and/or citation about that source. Each sentence and each citation has at least one thing wrong with it (most have more than one). Correct each of them

A book entitled The History of Food by Mageulonne Toussaint-Samat, translated by Anthea Bell. This version was published in 2003 by Barnes and Noble Books in New York. This paragraph comes from page 665.

Original Paragraph:

While the orange groves of Florida gradually became the marvels of good management and high yield they are today, a Spanish missionary reached the West, and in 1707 he planted the ancestor of the orange trees of California. However, it was not until 1848 that planting on a large scale really began, on a site which is now a railway station in the middle of Los Angeles. In that year California was overtaken by the tidal wave of the Gold Rush. While adventurers of every kind gave themselves up to the frenzied search for gold, wiser pioneers – growers of citrus fruits – realized that the beautiful, bright oranges were better gold than the metal mined from the ground.

4. Student’s sentence:

Orange trees were first planted by a Spanish missionary who reached the West in 1707, although they didn’t really take off as a farm crop until 1848 during the Gold Rush (Bell 665).

5. Student’s sentence:

In her book The History of Food, Maguelonne Toussaint-Samat claims that the orange tree in California didn’t become a staple until the adventurous spirit of the Gold Rush took over in 1848.

6. Student’s Works Cited citation:
Toussaint-Samat, Maguelonne. The History of Food. Trans. Anthea Bell. Barnes and Noble: New York. 2003
