How I Use It
Cite This For Me is a great Google Extension found in the Chrome Store. The extension sits in the task bar, and when students find a website they want to use for research, they simply click on Cite This For Me, and it creates a citation in either APA, MLA, Harvard or Chicago format. They can copy the citation into their Works Cited page. There are no excuses for plagiarism.
My Take
It is quick and easy to use, and it encourages students to cite their sources properly. It is so easy. Unless you are an English teacher, it seems teachers are uncomfortable with citations, as the formats are confusing and can be intimidating. Cite This For Me allows students to easily cite their sources, and the teacher can know that it is a quality citation.
