In this week’s forum posts I have seen some mistakes in citing quotes within the text. I did not specifically point out errors on posts but will give examples here. Some of you were correct, others were not. Review your posts to see where you fell.
To cite a quote from a source that was cited in another text :
Bennett and Bell went on to quote that young adults also typify “shallowness in reading, lack of critical thinking and naiveté about intellectual property and information authenticity of Internet resources” (Merriam & Bierema, 2014, p. 6).
Bennett and Bell were cited for their information within the textbook by Merriam & Bierema. When writing, introduce the owner of the quote, but cite the source you read it in. See page 10 under Secondary Sources in APA the Easy Way!
When writing a direct quote there are two ways to cite:
Levinson (Bee & Bjorklund, 2004) described a mentor as “ordinarily a male who is 8 to 15 years older” (p.44). or
Levinson described a mentor as “ordinarily a male who is 8 to 15 years older” (Bee & Bjorklund, 2004, p.44).
You have to cite the author as well as the page number. You can not just have a quote with a page number. Review pages 8 and 9 in APA the Easy Way!
You also do not need a page number if you are paraphrasing; you only need the author and year.
Erikson’s stage of generativity reflects on the adult’s primary concern with establishing and guiding the next generation (Bee, Bjorklund, 2004, p. 36). The page number is not necessary; this is not a direct quote. Or, if it is, it must have quotation marks surrounding the quote (exact words).
