Product Description:

Subtitled, A Writer’s Guide to Finding, Evaluating, Quoting, and Documenting Sources (and Avoiding Plagiarism), this straight-forward, distilled, and practical resource deftly assists you in the 2 challenges of research papers: the practical and the analytical. The practical: finding sources, taking notes correctly, documenting (discusses styles, gives examples, includes a quick reference), organizing all this information and writing your analysis. The analytical: evaluating information, determining good sources, avoiding the levels of plagiarism, discerning types of knowledge, and more. Written by a Well-trained Mind Academy teacher, this user-friendly resource is a must-have for anyone tackling the necessary tasks of researching and accurate writing. ~ Ruth 7”x 10”, 86 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth

Publisher Description:

Who Said What?: A Writer’s Guide to Finding, Evaluating, Quoting, and Documenting Sources (and Avoiding Plagiarism) is a thorough, accessible guide to research, citation, and source evaluation, designed to assist students growing up in an era of changing media, fake news, alternative facts, and information overload.

Is Yahoo Answers a good source for your History essay? How about InfoWars? How do you include another person’s ideas in your work without stealing them? Should you cite an Instagram post as a source, and if so, how do you do it? Who Said What? provides students from middle school through college with a reliable, friendly guide through the often bewildering process of research, note-taking, and documentation.

Drawing on years of teaching, research, and writing experience, Kayla Meyers teaches you how to evaluate the trustworthiness of a source, how to use it without stealing it, how to properly credit its creator, and why all of this even matters. With contemporary examples and step-by-step explanations that made Susan Wise Bauer’s Writing With Skill series so popular, Who Said What? will become an essential resource for 21st-century writers.

I like to have small science kits or toys as prizes for my children to earn by completing incentive cards. It motivates them to learn, and has some educational value, as well.
