Research Skills:

Whenever you use information from someone elses work, you must give credit to that person. According to the national council of writing, “using information from another article makes a reader believe what he or she is reading. (Jenkins, page 19)” It is also important to give proper citations “to avoid plagiarism.” (Wilson 9) After you use a quote in your paper, it is important to explain it’s significanse. Why did you put that quote in your paper. It should be there to support the topic sentence, which is their to support you’re thesis statement.
