In your Genre Analysis Report, you can use whatever bibliographical format you are most familiar with. Here are some tools if you are unsure how to make correct citations:

You can also watch the information on Citing Sources in research papers for more specific examples of citations.

The Bibliography was challenging. Citing pdf files and html took some additional research on top of the genre research. I played around with the Cite This for Me site, but ended up typing it out the old-fashioned way. Links to citation were very helpful.

In high school, my independent study teachers always pushed the importance of properly citing any resources we used. We had to write our source notes in PQS format, which stood for Paraphrase, Quotation, and Summary. By doing this, we were able to find the usable information from our sources and already have the citations done before actually using these statements in our reports. Doing notes this way was very tedious and time-consuming, but it prevented us from not giving credit to the author because if the notes didn’t have the relevant citations, then the assignment would have been graded poorly. With this Genre Analysis, I did not think to use this format of note-taking, but I think I will try to use it for future papers.
