Bibliography and Citation
For Social Science (history!), use the Chicago Manual of Style or Turabian.
This will look basically the same no matter which medium you choose for your project's product. For the due date on Tuesday,4/28, make a DOCUMENT in you term project folder.
FORMATTING is an essential part of the Bibliography. Follow the rules precisely!!!
There are a couple of ways to have the formatting done for you: one is Noodlebib, the other is on Word (see the Reference tab in Word.) You could try these out and then copy to your bibliography page. Be sure to use "Chicago Manual of Style" or "Turabian" as the style choice!!
To make a HANGING INDENT In WORD:
-Use punctuation as shown in the examples.
-SINGLE SPACE and select "Hanging Indent" so that the first line sticks out more the LEFT than the line below it. (Opposite of a normally indented paragraph.)
To make a HANGING INDENT in GOOGLE DOCS:
Go to these instructions: Google Hanging Indent
- Entries in the bibliography list are in ALPHABETICAL order by the First letter of the entry!! (See examples.)
- Put a(n extra) blank line between entries.
DO NOT LIST AN ITEM IN THE BIBLIOGRAPHY THAT DOES NOT HAVE A CITATION IN YOUR NARRATIVE or STORYBOARD.
The general rule is that if you write about anything you didn't already know about, you must divulge your source. (One exception to this is if the information is in your textbook - that usually counts as "everyone knows," and the information in not in dispute.)
If all the information in a particular paragraph, slide, or scene comes from the same source, you can add the citation number at the end of the (paragraph, citation, scene.)
- If there is more than one source, then you would add an additional citation number for each additional source - in the order in which the information appears.
We will be using either FOOTNOTES or ENDNOTES for citations. (See the link for an example of how this works.
NOTE: For the TERM PAPER, your citations will be indicated in the narrative in the PAGE where you used the information. Use ENDNOTES to list your notes on a separate Bibliography Page on your website.
SKIP THIS PART FOR THE TERM PAPER: While your product will not be a term paper (as in the example), we will figure out a process for citation. For example, material on a slide can be footnoted on the slide itself - even if it will be incorporated in an iMovie.
In an iMovie, the end credits can be expanded to include a narrative about which informaton was provided by which source(s). Note that this is NOT a method that has the approval of college Social Science departments!
