Q. Does the template included with my assignment require citations?

Do I need to do research when my professor gives me a template to use for an assignment?


If there is research involved in answering the assignment questions, you must use citations – on the final sources list and in-text citations. Any time you include information found through research, you need to assign credit for that information in your writing.

If your assignment provides a template document to answer each question in an assigned box, add a “Sources” box or a “Sources” page at the end of the template document and the corresponding in-text citations in parentheses throughout your writing in the template.
