I just want to get an idea how it comes out. Thank you Here is the question:

 Using the four (4) sources in “Use of Sources” on the Course Menu, write and correctly cite a 400-word post on the correct use of sources in an academic setting.

To do this, tell us (1) your usual method of writing papers and citing sources; (2) what you learned from reading “Use of Sources”; and (3) the consequences for incorrectly, either intentionally or unintentionally, citing sources; (4) use in-text citations for all the sources and include a reference list.

Read (or view) the sources carefully as these standards will be used to grade your work throughout the course.

Include a reference list and in-text citations in the body of the text.

The post is graded on your good understanding of the correct use of sources, evidence of reading of the sources listed in “Use of Sources,” and your ability to cite correctly.

The sources are listed below in the form you should use in your post.
