Practice Creating Citations - Think, Pair Share

Think about what you have learned about citations and their value in a scholarly community like Wheaton. Pair with a classmate, either remotely or from a safe distance, and each pick a different citation style (commons styles include APA, MLA, Chicago, Turabian). 

Using ZoteroBib, each of you should look up each of these items in your format:

Using the "Copy to the Clipboard button" paste the citations into a shared Google Doc.

Now, look at the two citation styles. In the Google Doc, list several similarities and several differences between the two styles you chose. Did one style emphasize a different piece of information that another (year of publication or author name)? Explain.

Look at the various formats of information. Are all the citations within a style the same? Explain.

What varies between different formats of information? Write why you think this may be important?
