On today’s agenda: Reviewing MLA format!

I want to start with  what may seem like some obvious questions:

1) What is a citation?

2) What is the purpose of a citation?

3) What is a Works Cited page?

4) What is the purpose of a Works Cited page?

When you can really answer those questions you’ll be much less likely to make mistakes citing your work.

I have a handout for you specifically on citing Shakespeare in MLA format: Citing-Shakespeare

But I don’t have one for MLA format in general since there are so many different aspects of MLA formatting. So instead, I’m giving you a link to the resources I think are most helpful.
