I have noticed that some of you are listing Google, You Tube, or Wikipedia as a source.  These are just search engines that help you FIND your resources.  Below is the correct way to cite your sources:

“Types of Volcanoes.”  Enchanted Learning. 8 January 2011 http://www.enchantedlearning.com

You must include the name of the article, the name of the website, the date you visited it (approximately) and the web address.  This will give credit to the person(s) who gave you that information.

When a scholar learns something from a resource, he/she needs to give credit to the source.  Watch the video below to learn about copyright. 

If you use parts of someone else’s work (document, website, book, picture, music or video) you MUST give them credit.Here is an example of how to cite a website that you used:

“Types of Volcanoes.” Enchanted Learning. 8 June 2005 <http://www.enchantedlearning.com/subjects/volcano/types/index.shtml>

How do you know that??
