Citing sources for an academic writing project can seem a bit like trying to hit a moving target—the rules keep changing (they’re more like guidelines anyway). Teaching citation can be especially difficult, then, given multiple styles necessary for multiple disciplines and the occasional style changes; however, what doesn’t seem to change is the need to know where information comes from. In this chapter, you and your students can explore citation as a rhetorical practice, one which does not always fit within the boundaries of traditional style guides but that nonetheless follows a logic that students can learn.
