Citelighter

When doing research, there are many different sites you can use to make research on the internet more efficient.  One such site is Citelighter.   

Advantages:

Saves time, citations provided in APA, MLA, Chicago, etc., exports to Word, Google Docs, etc., and you can annotate them and share them

Disadvantages:

I can’t think of any.

Keep in mind, when you’re using Citelighter, you may need to use a browser like Firefox or Chrome.

Assignment Idea:

This is a great way to teach paraphrasing, summarizing, main idea, supporting ideas, etc.  Students can pull quotations from the web on a research topic.  In the annotations, they can write a summary or a paraphrase.  They could also identify the main idea of the passage.  This can be shared with you digitally or printed off.  You can use this as a practice exercise or even in the research paper process.
