Instructional Ideas
  • Assign the lesson before an upcoming research project
  • Use the instruction before plagiarism becomes a disciplinary problem in your class
  • Hand out the list of links for future reference, or laminate the list to display in a computer lab
Classroom Considerations
  • The resource provides links for related materials and online tools, but not for the supplemental worksheets; activities that are available are attached 
  • Guides learners through the proper steps for documentation with links to online resources
  • Activities are differentiated into skill levels (beginner and intermediate)
  • The unit's main page and worksheets are no longer available
