MLA Format: Monday’s Class
Posted below are resources that I think you will find useful for revising and double-checking your descriptive web texts for proper citation methods.
Diana Hacker MLA in-text citations – please look at the “basic rules” section at the very beginning of the page – it will be extremely informative for many of you.
Use these resources in addition to your Pocket Style Manual in order to make **crucial** changes to your descriptive web texts by Wednesday at 11am. Please get into pairs and check each other’s papers together to make sure that you fulfill the following points:
i. YOU MUST HAVE CAPTIONS OR SOME TEXT UNDER YOUR PHOTOS INDICATING WHAT THEY ARE, WHY THEY ARE IN YOUR TEXT, AND/OR WHERE THEY CAME FROM **DO NOT PUT A URL UNDER THE PHOTOS**
ii. YOU MUST CITE YOUR IMAGES IN YOUR WORKS CITED PAGE
iii. YOU MUST CITE LINE-BY-LINE EVERYTHING YOU GET FROM OTHER SOURCES, EVERYTHING THAT YOU DID NOT PREVIOUSLY KNOW, EVERYTHING THAT YOU PARAPHRASE OR QUOTE FROM OTHER SOURCES. DO THIS IN PROPER IN-TEXT-MLA-CITATION FORMAT.
iv. YOU MUST FORMAT YOUR HYPERLINKS PROPERLY, ATTACHED TO WORDS AS I SHOWED YOU IN CLASS
***If you make changes to your web text (if changes are necessary, which they were on many papers) then re-post it to your blog AND email me either with the new document attached or the url to the posted text***
