PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a brief introduction to MLA-style in-text citations.

When I walked into my school and met my students from sixth-eighth grade, I realized that they never even heard the words "in-text citations." Arming myself with some silly ideas, I went to work creating a PowerPoint that would introduce the basics of MLA-style in-text citations to students without completely putting them to sleep.

The following questions are answered in my PPT:

When do I need an in-text citation?
What do they look like? What do they contain?
How are they punctuated?
When do I quote, and when do I paraphrase?
How do I introduce quotations (signal phrases)?
How do I integrate my quotations in my sentences grammatically?
How do I use brackets?
What is the purpose of an ellipsis?
Is it okay to alter an author's intended meaning?
