Today, I got to present a workshop on citations to Ms. Haag's grade six class. They are currently working on their Exhibition project and are exploring a lot of interesting and important social issues.
Citations aren't always the most exciting topic to speak on but they are extremely important.
It is very important to ensure that we give others credit for their intellectual property.
Proper citations also help a reader locate the information in the resources used.
We had a great discussion about plagiarism, collusion, and the importance of citations.
Then we watched a fun video that helps explain how to use one form of citations - quotations.
You can check it out here.
Things then got a exciting with our Citation Scavenger Hunt.
