Citation Instructions

Failure to follow these instructions will result in a loss of points.

Make sure you use the following method for citations

– Since your essay should use sources outside of the class materials, at least 3 outside sources, besides the textbook, is necessary and expected for this assignment. Quotations you sourced

have to provide important and substantial information which aids your argument!

– The sources for your essay should not be with .com, .net, .org extensions. You can only use sources with .edu, .gov extensions. Sources with other extensions will not count towards the

three sources requirement. Wikipedia is not acceptable source for this assignment and you are

not allowed to use it. To access those reliable sources, I suggest consult BC research librarian.

– To cite, use parenthetical citations, for example: (Smith 2009, p. 15)

– To create a bibliography of the works used for the assignment, use APA citation style,


Any remaining questions on formatting, style, or citations should be directed to the instructor by email. I

might not be able to respond to your e mail if you send it to me the night before the essay is due, so ask

your questions as early as possible.

REMEMBER: Submit only PDF or MS Word format of your paper to the course D2L course shell. You

will not receive grade if you do not submit your paper in D2L on time.
