    I'm not really sure how to 'reference the item'. Do I just expand on some of the points it makes?

    For example if the item was Item A - Marxists see class as the fundamental division in society, in which the proletariat are exploited by the capitalist owners of the means of production. The capitalist class maintain their dominance partly by force and partly by ideological control through the media, the education system and so on. However, Marxists predict that ultimately, the proletariat will overthrow capitalism by means of a revolution. For Marxists, social change is not the gradual evolutionary process seen by consensus theories.
    However, other sociologists argue that class is not the only basis for inequality and that revolutions have failed to occur in advanced capitalist societies.

    And somewhere in the essay I said "As referenced in Item A functionalists disagree with Marxists that society is based on conflict and instead see it as based on consensus due to shared values. They also see social change as an evolutionary process rather than a revolutionary one..."

    Would this be correct?

    Use quotes from the item and put the word item next to it in brackets, for example:

    "Marxists see class as the fundamental division in society, in which the proletariat are exploited by the capitalist owners of the means of production" (item) then you can build on this, or give an example etc

    So it's wrong to do it the way I've done it? ^^

    I guess you could do it that way but it's safer to quote it, you need to use it at least twice too
