EDUC 340: Multicultural Education (Fisher): Citing your sources


There are many different "styles" you may choose from when citing sources. MLA (Modern Language Association), Chicago, and APA (American Psychological Association) are the three most common styles. Your professor will probably tell you which style is he or she would like you to use.
