We cite, or refer to, our sources in research assignments for (basically) 4 reasons:
1) To give credit to (or not take the blame for!) the "author" of the idea or quote
2) To support and highlight our own work/ideas
3) To show the research we have done
4) To become part of the academic or scholarly "conversation" about our topic
