Citing Your Sources

Learning how and why to give credit to other people's ideas and work is an important part of the library curriculum at Penn Charter. Students learn developmentally appropriate ways to give credit to an author or website, working closely with their librarians and teachers. Beginning with simple templates and advancing to more sophisticated formats, students cite their sources when doing research.

Students from fourth grade and beyond are provided with access to NoodleTools, an online subscription that allows students to store their sources, create Works Cited documents and electronic notecards anywhere they have an Internet connection. Students create their own NoodleTools accounts during library classes, which they can then use anywhere they have access to a computer.
