Junior School Referencing

A guide to compliment the teaching of correct referencing within the Junior School

Source: Black, S. (2020).

Is referencing important?



Referencing is a very important part of our school work.

Why is it important?

When we reference we are telling everyone where the information came from.

Unless you are writing from a personal experience, then it is safe to say that either you read your information somewhere, you saw your information somewhere, or someone told you about it.

If this is the case then the information does not belong to you because it belongs to someone else and you need to let everyone know that this is the case.

What happens if we don't reference?

If we don't say where our information came from, we can be accused of plagiarism!
