It is important that you use supporting evidence and reference correctly. I strongly recommend that you paraphrase (express other people s ideas in your own words and correctly reference) instead of using direct quotes because these assignments are too short to use up your words on direct quotes. If you absolutely must use direct quotes, please make sure that they are very short “ less than two lines.
