Transcript

  • 1. English 72 Mrs. Buchanan 10/24/13
  • 2. Peer Review Rough Draft
  • 3. How to CITE in MLA  In MLA style, referring to the works of others in your text is done by using what is known as parenthetical citation. This method involves placing relevant source information in parentheses after a quote or a paraphrase.
  • 4. How to Slide in MLA Review  On Monday we discussed how to cite using MLA format. Stay in your group – you will be assigned one of the following based on “The Science of Shopping” 1st page, 2nd paragraph, 1st sentence.
  • 5. Groups A. B. C. D. Paraphrase with citation using author’s name. Quote part of sentence using author’s name. Quote part of sentence without using author’s name Paraphrase without author’s name.
  • 6. Source Information The source information required in a parenthetical citation depends (1.) upon the source medium (e.g. Print, Web, DVD) and (2.) upon the source’s entry on the Works Cited (bibliography) page.
  • 7. Link to the Works Cited Page  Any source information that you provide in-text must correspond to the source information on the Works Cited page. More specifically, whatever signal word or phrase you provide to your readers in the text, must be the first thing that appears on the left-hand margin of the corresponding entry in the Works Cited List.
  • 8. Author-Page Method  MLA format follows the author-page method of in-text citation. This means that the author's last name and the page number(s) from which the quotation or paraphrase is taken must appear in the text, and a complete reference should appear on your Works Cited page. The author's name may appear either in the sentence itself or in parentheses following the quotation or paraphrase, but the page number(s) should always appear in the parentheses, not in the text of your sentence.
  • 9. Examples  Duhigg stated, “This explains why it’s so hard to create exercise habits, for instance, or change what we eat” (20).    In this sentence Duhigg’s name is mentioned; therefore, you do not need to write his name in the parenthetical citation. Duhigg discussed the difficulty of creating exercise habits (20).
  • 10.  “This explains why it’s so hard to create exercise habits, for instance, or change what we eat” (Duhigg 20).  In this sentence Duhigg’s name is not mentioned; therefore you do need to write his name in the parenthetical citation.
  • 11.  Duhigg discussed the difficulty of creating exercise habits (20).  In this sentence, Duhigg’s comment is paraphrased; not quoted; therefore it does not need “” marks, but the page number is still included.
  • 12. Works Cited Page  This is done on a separate page – the last page of the essay.  Duhigg, Charles. The Power of Habit Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business. Random House. New York. 2012. Print  Gladwell, Malcolm. “The Science of Shopping.” The New Yorker. 4 Nov. 1996: 66-75. Print
