Activity Twentyeight How to introduce your sources

Look at an example of one of your own assignments.

Make a list of some of the words and phrases you have used which signal the shift back and forth between your words and the words of your source author.

Now take an article you have read or one you need to read for a forthcoming assignment. Use words and phrases the author has used to add to your original list.

These are some of the ones on our list:

• illustrates

• provides evidence

In order to help you to think a little more about the integration of sources and the different 'voices' in your assignment writing we examine two similar extracts, A and B, from a student essay, below.
