The Write Source
I was an English major in college, and the curriculum I use is very writing based. These websites are good for students who are just beginning to write research papers and want to know how to do it and how to document sources. Write source also publishes young writers essays and gives ideas and how-tos for different types of writing. Note: a bibliography lists ALL sources consulted, while a Works Cited page lists only those actually used in the paper. -Stacey
