When you use information that isn't directly out of your brain for a presentation, you MUST cite where you got it. This is called a BIBLIOGRAPHY. This is the same process you use when you cite information you get from books for a report. Here is the format you will use to cite the websites you use to gather information for your PowerPoint presentation. You must cite EVERY website you use!! This is a MAJOR part of your grade, so make sure it is complete!
Here is how you should write each citation:
Last Name, First Name Middle initial of Author of Web Page (if available). "Article or Web Page Title." URL of Web Page. Publisher or Sponsor of Website, Day Mon. year electronically published/updated. Web. Day Mon.. year accessed.
Your sources should be listed alphabetically by the first letter of the entry. You may need to use cut and paste to arrange them alphabetically.
Bibliography entries have a special type of indentation called hanging indentation. To create this type of indentation, type in the information for each entry the way you would a normal paragraph. Then use your mouse to highlight the entry, go up to the top menu, click on format and release on paragraph. In the paragraph pop-up menu, go down to indentation, to the special scroll window and scroll down to hanging.
OR an easier to create your bibliography is to use an on-line citation machine, like the one linked here: Easy bibliography creation
