What are three ways to integrate a source into your writing?
A: They are: 1) Quotations: must be attributed to the author, quoted word for word in quotation marks, and have an in-text citation. Ex: Evans-Pritchard explains: “Witchcraft beliefs also embrace a system of values which regulate human conduct” (63). 2) Paraphrase: puts the authors material into your own words and must also be attributed and cited. Ex: Mary Sigler (2010) notes that the logic behind privatization rests on the assumption that the private sector can perform government functions more quickly, more efficiently, at lower costs, and can spur innovation trough competition (154). 3) Summarize: authors are attributed and cited and main ideas are given in a broad overview. Ex: Jonathan Marks (2005) takes aim at the controversial book, The Bell Curve, to reveal it as Social Darwinist, racist, pseudo-science.

Q: Creating flashcards, reviewing notes, and relating information to your own experiences are great ways to learn, comprehend, and retain information. What is one other effective practice for test preparation?
A: Teaching what you have learned. Find a friend or relative and teach them a lesson on the material you are being tested on. It's fun and you will find that areas where you have trouble explaining the material, you can review that further.
