Module 4, Lesson 5
Notes, Practice, & Assignment
As honors seniors you have more than likely spent a fair amount of time paraphrasing and directly citing information. Certainly with the new Common Core curriculum we've done quite a bit of this just this semester alone! But, it's especially imperative that you cite properly when doing research, so today's information and activities will provide a review of that material and information on how to create a works cited page.
Here's an excellent handout from Cal State that gives you an easy to navigate overview of MLA formatting. I strongly encourage you to print up a copy: http://www.calstatela.edu/library/guides/3mla.pdf
Another cite that can help you out quite a bit is: easybib.com
Here's a cool prezi that will also walk you through all of the steps to proper MLA formatting: https://prezi.com/ggjo5x3w2bal/mla-works-cited-page/
It's ok if you're still gathering research, or if you create it with a source you eventually decide not to use, but having a 'rough draft' so to speak will save you tremendous time when it's time to submit the official version. One important reminder: make sure your formatting is MLA! At this point you should have most of your credible sources. Once again as a reminder, make sure your formatting is MLA!
