Who Said What?: A Writer’s Guide to Finding, Evaluating, Quoting, and Documenting Sources (and Avoiding Plagiarism) is a thorough, accessible guide to research, citation, and source evaluation, designed to assist students growing up in an era of changing media, fake news, alternative facts, and information overload. 

Is Yahoo Answers a good source for your History essay? How about InfoWars? How do you include another person’s ideas in your work without stealing them? Should you cite an Instagram post as a source, and if so, how do you do it? Who Said What? provides students from middle school through college with a reliable, friendly guide through the often bewildering process of research, note-taking, and documentation.

Drawing on years of teaching, research, and writing experience, Kayla Meyers teaches you how to evaluate the trustworthiness of a source, how to use it without stealing it, how to properly credit its creator, and why all of this even matters. With contemporary examples and step-by-step explanations that made Susan Wise Bauer’s Writing With Skill series so popular, Who Said What? will become an essential resource for 21st-century writers.

Features:

  • Offers clear, contemporary examples to help students & writers recognize and avoid plagiarism
  • Guides students and writers through evaluating the trustworthiness of sources and separating fact from propaganda or clickbait
  • Provides step-by-step instructions for researching and writing essays, research papers, and articles.
  • Teaches students how to cite sources in all major formats: APA, MLA, and more
  • Foreword by Susan Wise Bauer, writer of the bestselling Writing With EaseWriting With Skill, and The Story of the World series
  • Quick Reference Guides at the end of each section for easy access to information
