Cite it Right!

Why do we cite?

As exhibition approaches, Grade 5 has been continuing to develop their research skills in preparation for their independent inquiry project. This week the Grade 5 students were introduced to creating bibliographies in MLA style. We discussed why how we cite before practicing making citations for new books about science experiments.

Where can we find information for our citations?

After they understood the philosophy behind citation and practiced making citations by hand, the students were introduced to RefME, a powerful citation tool new to the YIS community. Anyone with a YIS email can create an account with RefME.  Watch this space for more information about RefME as we roll it out over the next few weeks.
