Comparing citation styles for different audiences
To demonstrate the rhetorical purpose of academic citation format, you could compare three kinds of documents that the students might turn up in their research. A blog might provide links to their sources. A newspaper column arguing a similar point might reference some noted sources, but won't (and doesn't need to) provide all source citations. But an academic article or reference article needs to provide its sources so that academic readers can verify the information for themselves. Too often, undergraduates see citation requirements purely as avoiding punishment for plagiarism, but the fact that citations are a rhetorical feature of academic writing gets lost.
