The remaining 2 sources may be books, journal articles, or reputable web sites (like those from professional organizations or governmental agencies, not Wikipedia or similar sites, check the links in the webliography section for suggestions for online sites). Remember if you are copy and pasting anything it is a direct quotation and will come up on turnitin, this is ok if it's cited appropriately, please see the links for citations in the webliography as well purdue OWL and citationmachine are great resources. If your turnitin number is high and I see copy and pasting and problems with origninality, you may be asked to rewrite your paper. If you have already provided a rewrite for origniality issues, you will receive a zero for the assignment. You can always submit early and see your turnitin score and email me prior to the assignment if you think your paper has concerns, I don't mind giving feedback at all! I say all this not to scare you but to make you aware, if there are honest mistakes, I always err on the side of helping students, so don't worry!!
