I. Citations
In academic writing it is important that citations are properly given as a way to: 1) give credit to the original author’s ideas and 2) to inform the reader where the information came from. Here are some examples of properly citing from a textbook:
Direct quote:
“About 12,000 years ago (around 10,000 BCE), a fundamental shift occurred in the way humans produced food for themselves—what some scholars have called an agricultural, or ecological, revolution” (Worlds Together, Worlds Apart, 22).
As you can see, there are quotation marks (“”) around the material taken straight from the textbook, Worlds Together, Worlds Apart; which is followed by the textbook title in abbreviated format and the page number from where the quote can be found. If the material being quoted is more than two sentences, then the writer should paraphrase the material in their own words while still providing proper citation.
Indirect (paraphrased) quote:
According to the textbook, around 12,000 years ago a shift occurred in the ways humans produced food, which is called the agricultural revolution (Worlds Together, Worlds Apart, 22). During the same period a warming trend occurred, which allowed for a wealth of plants and animals to be exposed and domesticated by early humans (Worlds Together, Worlds Apart, 22).
This paraphrased quote is citing two sentences from the textbook and provided proper citation material: textbook name, followed by the page number.
Proper citations are also required when quoting, directly or indirectly, from lecture PPT slides and primary sources (either from the textbook, textbook reader, or on Canvas).
You can also use the author’s last name followed by the page number:
During the same period a warming trend occurred, which allowed for a wealth of plants and animals to be exposed and domesticated by early humans (Pollard, 22).
As long as the reader, me, knows where the information is coming from, then using either title or author is ok with me. Please do not stress on the minutia or small details of MLA or Chicago Style, as long as the information presented in the essay is clearly from the Work Cited page, then I am happy.
I think it would be beneficial for you to add more sources to your paper in order to present more facts and further add to your argument.
