The Chicago Manual of Style is a way of formatting and documenting your written work, and it is most commonly used in History classes. Generally, instead of citations, it shows the sources of information in an essay through superscript numbers that refer to footnotes at the bottom a page, and these footnotes contain basic information about the source. It will also include a list of references at the end of the document that gives more thorough source information. In comparison, MLA and APA styles are more commonly used at TCC for course assignments.
