What you learn from your sources should be in your paper or presentation. Asking yourself these questions as you read is a technique that can help you focus:
The articles you gather will give you the facts and information you need to explain the topic to your reader.
If you use information from a source that you did not know before, you should cite it to give credit to the author regardless of whether you are using a quote or paraphrasing the information.
