Ok or not? Citing a source incorrectly

ok-or-not-banner-blog.jpg

This week's poll addresses the need for students to look at their citations (MLA, APA, etc.) critically. It may be the case that teachers will deduct points or ask students to redo their citations if they see any errors.  Are these teachers being too demanding? Is this even plagiarism? Voice your opinion and chime in if it's ok to accidentally cite incorrectly.

Also, stay tuned for our poll series review in a couple weeks where we'll revisit the previous polls and provide thoughtful answers to these situations.
