Teaching Students to Cite, Attribute, and Paraphrase with Ease

Proper attribution is an important part of academic work and can also orient students to a field of study. While you can refer students to your discipline's style manual for the mechanics of attribution, a number of barriers—such as not understanding when citations are needed, how to paraphrase, or even what type of source they're looking at—may make proper attribution challenging for students. This session will present best practices for teaching students to cite, attribute, and paraphrase their sources.
