Many of your assignments require use of both direct quotes and paraphrases.
Both quotes and paraphrases must be cited.
Direct quotes are word-for-word quotations.
Cite them with quotation marks and an in-text citation.
e.g., The Gettyburg Address opens "Four score and seven years ago" (Lincoln, 1863, p. #).
Paraphrases restate someone else's ideas in your own words.
Cite with an in-text citation.
e.g., The Gettysburg Address opens by looking to past decades (Lincoln, 1863, p. #).
