This is a succinct but thorough explanation of how to incorporate textual sources in a paper according to MLA guidelines.
This PowerPoint is expressly designed for use in English and literature classes, as it explains and demonstrates how to incorporate both long and short excerpts of prose and poetry. Sample citations and in-text citation directions are also provided for web sources. It also contains a sample works cited with 13 different types of citations, labeled for easy instruction.
This is very useful for advanced classes with students needing a debrief in using sources according to MLA. It would also be perfect for training writing center staff. Originally used with my AP English Literature class. Could be used for any class where research papers are assigned.
