How to cite and reference your textbook chapters
The idea of citing readings is to give credit to original sources and to give your reader information about where to find the works you are citing. When you share ideas from the course textbook or other scholarly sources, you must provide a notation letting the reader know that you are borrowing the ideas from another author(s). In this course, we are using an edited chapter book as our text, so the actual authors of the chapters you cite will vary depending upon the chapter from which you take your information. That being said, your posts and papers should not [emphasis added] cite Erford (2014) alone unless he, in fact, wrote the chapter you are citing. He is the editor of the textbook and not necessarily the author of the chapters you are citing (He is the sole author of chapter 15 and co-author of several chapters.). As an example, if you were to cite information from chapter 1, you would cite Carmichael and Erford, the actual authors of chapter 1--your citation would appear as (Carmichael & Erford, 2014). On the reference page, the reference for chapter 1 would read: References

I am including a complete list of all the correct references for the chapters of the book below. Please note that Erford should never appear as a citation in your posts (unless citing Ch 15)….because he did not actually write the other chapters alone, but he did co-write others. I know this may be confusing, so think about it as giving credit to the writers in your citations and in references. Also note here that the whole title of the book gets italics in your references list, but the chapter title does not. The reason for this...
