Remind your child when finding information in books that is to be used in a report; a works cited page must be included. A works cited page gives credit to the authors or creators who originally researched and published the information. Encourage your child to write down information from each book that is used for a report. Your child should copy the author, title, city, publisher, and copyright date from each source that is used. When children copy word for word another person’s thoughts or ideas without giving credit to the author, they are using plagiarism. Remind your child not to copy every word, site the source(s) that is used, and to use quotations when using exact words from the author.
