  • Quotations
  • Paraphrases/Summaries
  • Citations without quotations
  • Citations without the author’s name (because name is mentioned in the text)
  • Citing from multiple pages in a single sentence
  • Brackets and ellipses – you can make the text work for you.
  • Individual words or phrases as quotes
  • Block quotes
  • Commentary from the article author/authorial assertions

How well do you think the author used evidence to support their argument?
