Ms. Shockness’ ENG4U class is coming in to learn about MLA.

We’ll be talking about the importance of using parenthetical citations (Kosowan) in our work and how to ensure that we don’t break the rules. We’ll be discussing how the use of parenthetical citations “[provide] relevant source information in parentheses whenever a sentence uses a quotation or paraphrase” (“MLA In-Text Citations: The Basics”).

We’ll also be talking about how to generate an effective Works Cited List.



The following video from OWLPurdue is a great reminder of what in-text citations look like.

What’s that? You’ve done all this before?

The reality is that everyone needs a refresher on citation from time to time…. so this will be gentle…. promise.

Sure…. you’ve learned this before…. but if you were so good at it; would you be having to come back in and do it all over again? 🙂
