Your five-paragraph paper should include an introductory paragraph, three body paragraphs, and a concluding paragraph. See the Word file, “How to Structure a Five-Paragraph Paper,” in the Learning Materials or in my announcements.
Quoting and Paraphrasing:
When quoting from a source, put quotation marks around the words you are quoting and add an in-text citation giving the author’s name, date of publication, and page number:
The definitive study (Williams, 1999) “established the positive impact of chocolate on the cerebral cortex of college students, enhancing the ability to accurately identify and use academic honesty practices” (p. 32).
When paraphrasing, putting someone else’s ideas or facts into your own words, add an in-text citation giving the author’s name and year of publication.
Brown argued that consumption of chocolate is crucial for students who are practicing academic honesty (2009).
If your source does not give the author’s name, put the article title in the in-text citation along with the date of publication and page numbers if citing a quotation and with just the date of publication if citing a paraphrase.
The definitive study (“Chocolate and Plagiarism,” 1999) “established the positive impact of chocolate on the cerebral cortex of college students, enhancing the ability to accurately identify and use academic honesty practices” (p. 32).
It has been argued that consumption of chocolate is crucial for students who are practicing academic honesty (“Chocolate and Plagiarism,” 1999).
Every source that appears in an in-text citation should also appear on your reference page, where you give more complete information to help your reader to locate the source.
