This excellent site from Indiana University includes a tutorial that walks you through identifying different types of plagiarism, including what the consequences might be. It also shows you what the requirements are for in-text citations. Then it quizzes you on plagiarism. You can even register (free) to take a certification test. If you choose to take these tests and show me the certificates it sends you, I will count it as extra credit towards the research section of this class.
A quick sample guide showing you how to cite your sources. I strongly suggest that every time you do research you keep a record of every source, what information you got from that source, and all the information you need to cite it. You never know if you won't be able to find it again!
Citation machine that automatically helps you properly format your sources. Don't forget to search to make sure you get all the needed info! Also, make sure you click to include the URL of the website if you use one.
