How to Cite Teacher's Notes

Save

Whether it is a research paper or information article, citing the references used is essential. Any source that is used in the development of the work should be given credit through a citation. This is necessary to avoid charges of plagiarism. This rule applies to information from a teacher's notes, which need to be cited in the same manner as a lecture. Sources can be cited using two different formats, either APA or MLA. This article describes how to use the MLA format.

  • Write the teacher's name. Use the last name first, followed by a comma, then the first name. Follow the name with a period.

  • Write the title of the lecture in quotation marks. Follow with period. If the lecture did not have a title, skip it.

  • List the sponsoring organization. If the lecture was given in your school, list the name of that school or college. Follow with a comma.

  • List the location. Use just the city. Do not include the state. Follow with period.

  • Give the date of the notes or lecture. List in order of day, abbreviated month, year. For example, for March 18th, 2010 the format is 18 Mar 2010.

  • Add a short descriptor (one to three words) to describe the nature of the source, for example, Lecture Notes.
