Should you cite an Instagram post as a source, and if so, how do you do it? Who Said What? provides students from middle through high school 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.
