Module 3: Citing scholarly work
In Modules 1 and 2, you learned how to search for sources and determine whether or not they're appropriate for your research. In Module 3, you’ll learn how to document your use of these sources in your writing. This module shows you how to create citations in the body of your writing and how to compile a list of the works you've cited. You’ll also learn how to avoid plagiarism by distinguishing your words and ideas from those of your sources.
To get started, choose “Lesson 1” from the navigation bar on your left.  Each lesson has two components—Watch and Practice. After watching the video, practice what you’ve learned before proceeding to the next lesson. After you complete all three lessons in this module, choose “Assessment - Module 3” from the navigation bar to the left. Have fun!
