As learning difficulty and levels progress, and where one is likely to proffer new thinking, one is more likely to be criticized for not providing attributions/citations to indicate the 'assistance' given by those who have helped one to generate the new idea(s).  For example, in academia at the graduate level, learners must quickly learn to cite their sources...or else.

Therefore, in public school, a wise and well-intentioned teacher will encourage his/her learners to adopt the conventions of good academic analysis and prose early.  That would include at the very least citing a web page from which the information/file/image was taken.
