    Begin with an attribution

    The writing assignment:
    Write .....Each quote or paraphrase must be less than 3 lines in length and begin with an attribution.

    I don't know what is the "attribution". Any example would be appreciated.

    Next month due.

    I asked it for my son. He is kind of learning disability kid(autistic).
    And he doesn't know how to ask it to the teacher. I have to explain it with my plain language.

    We can't help with homework here. Might I suggest that you contact the teacher and ask the questions for your son?

    Re: Begin with an attribution

    An attribution is a short statement telling who you are going to quote. As Barack Obama said in his State of the Union address, "We cannot let extremist groups frighten us into changing our way of life."
