I am very nervous about plagiarism and citing sources. If the instructor tells us to review the information provided in chapter twelve and explain the steps of writing, do I have to put the textbook as a reference if I read all of the information and wrote my post in my own words? I am taking classes online.

    Citing your source is probably not necessary in this situation, but it wouldn't hurt.

    So since I am not actually using exact words but this is where I got the information would I just do this after my post?

    Good idea.

    If I only used certain pages, where would I put that in my citation?

  • com/156 -

    Put the page numbers in parentheses at the end of the citation.

    The reason for citing this text is to give credit to the author for his/her ideas.
