Tip to You about Inline Citation in This Example: This example shows extremely brief in-text citation so citation is to try to be as close to unobtrusive as footnotes. A person reading the paper aloud should be able to read it and not have the citation interrupt thought. The instructions for each paper cover exact words for citation. The word Begin starts the example, with the in-text citation in ( ) and after the fact:

         For the textbook, (Pageant, #). -# = the specific page number of the textbook where the fact is located.

         For a primary, (LL, #) - LL = initial letter of authorís first and last name. # = the specific page number of the primary where the fact is located.

Begin with a brief sentence introducing what the whole paper covers, such as how laws or a part of foreign policy changed from the beginning to the end of the period. (Tip: Write what you would say aloud to another first year student. Be simple.) In this first paragraph, use the earliest primary (the first one in the folder of primaries) and at least 1 textbook page for this time period listed in the instructions. Make a correct citation (footnote or inline) to a textbook page about Primary 1 (Pageant, 187). Make a correct citation (footnote or inline) to a page of Primary 1 (JM, 1). (Tip: In all paragraphs, write so words make common sense. You may cite the Primary and then its textbook page or vice versa. You may use more than one textbook page or Primary page.)

Make a simple, short transition sentence to introduce the new paragraph and to show how the evidence fits together. In this second paragraph, use Primary 2 and at least 1 textbook page appropriate for Primary 2. Make a correct citation (footnote or inline) to a page of Primary 2 (TR, 2). Make a correct citation (footnote or inline) to a textbook page about Primary 2 (Pageant, 468).

Make another simple, short transition sentence for this paragraph. In this third paragraph, use Primary 3 and at least one textbook page appropriate for Primary 3. Make a correct citation (footnote or inline) to a page of Primary 3 (FR, 2). Make a correct citation (footnote or inline) to a textbook page appropriate for the 3rd primary (Pageant, 572). Make a simple, short closing sentence on what the whole paper covered. (Cautions: Do not introduce new facts in that closing sentence. Also, make sure all footnotes are on this page. If needed, delete some of your words.)
