  • Transcript

    • 1. Quote Sandwich And odds and ends
    • 2. So what is the MLA general format?
        • Font: 12-point Times New Roman or Arial.
        • Margins: One inch on top, bottom, left, and right.
        • Spacing: Double-spaced.
        • Header: Right-aligned, last name followed by page number, on every page. 
          • Smith 1

          • Mr. Gutierrez
          • English 101
          • Septemer 29, 2011
    • 3. MLA format - Titles
        • The title of your essay will be centered, with only regular double spacing separating it from the first line of the essay.
          • NOT UNDERLINED
          • NOT BOLD
          • NOT ALL CAPS
          • NOT ITALICIZED
        • When you mention other titles in your essay:
        • Italicize: Books, plays, periodicals, radio and television programs, and other independently published works.
        • “ Quote marks”: Articles, essays, short stories, short poems, chapters of books, individual episodes of television and radio programs, and other works published within larger works.
    • 4. So what is the MLA citation format?
      • Parenthetical notes
        • Author's last name and page number inside parenthesis after a quote, paraphrase, summary, or other reference to ideas other than your own.
        • "Bleh" (Gutierrez 7).
      • Attributive tags
        • Provide information in the sentence leading up to the quote, such as:
        • Author's name
        • Author's title or credentials
        • Title of the source
        • Context of the source
        • According to English 101 instructor Mr. Gutierrez, in a lecture last week, "Bleh" (Gutierrez 7).
      &
    • 5. Punctuation
        • Most of the time, punctuation is inside of quote marks
          • "we like to party," or "what is the time?"
        • If your quote marks are from an outside source, they MUST be followed by a parenthetical note, and the punctuation occurs AFTER the note
          • The article states, "we like to party" ("Habits").
          • Like she said, "there were no chairs" (Robinson).
        • What goes in the parenthesis is the first element in the Works Cited entry.  If that is a name, then the last name goes in the parenthesis.  If the first element is a title, then a shortened version of that title goes in the parenthesis.  If that title is in quote marks in the Works Cited page, then it's in quote marks in the parenthesis.  If it is in italics on the WS page, then it is in italics in the parenthesis.
    • 6. How to integrate sources
      • The quote sandwich:
        • Introduce the source in a sentence leading up to the quote.
        • Present the quote, with the parenthetical note.
        • Explain the significance of the quote.
    • 7. How to integrate sources
      • The quote sandwich:
        • George mayor Elliot Kooy, in an interview with The Columbia Basin Herald , said that
        • "we as a city wanted to stay out of the argument for awhile" (Lancaster 1).
        • However, the raid on medical marijuana growing operations has certainly thrust them into that argument.
      + +
    • 8. The bread of the sandwich
      • Top bread
        • Work up to the quote by introducing who said it or who it's about.
        • Try to have the quote be part of this sentence.
        • Context, background information, and other important details should be introduced here.
        • If a reader just sees a quote, he or she may not trust it without knowing that it came from a reliable source.
      • Bottom bread
        • Explain the significance of the quote.
        • Even if the point is painfully obvious to you, the writer, you need to make sure that you have connected the dots for the reader.
    • 9. Write these down!
      • For the following examples, randomly taken from your own essays, answer the following questions:
        • Does the example have the top bread, an introduction to the quote?
        • Does the example put the right information in the parenthesis?
        • Does the example use the right punctuation in and after the quote?
        • Does the example have the bottom bread, an explanation of the quote?
        • If the answer for any of the above is "no," what needs to be added/removed/changed to fix it?

      • One example would be near the end of J.R.R. Tolkien's  The Hobbit , when Bilbo Baggins wakes after being knocked out by a falling stone.  &quot;Now I wonder what happened,&quot; he said to himself, &quot;at any rate I am not yet one of the fallen heroes; but I suppose there is still time enough for that!&quot; (Tolkien, J.R.R.).  This example is linked to the feeling of humor it can give to the audience from the light hearted jest about there still being time enough to become a fallen hero.

      • First of all, people lie because it is instinctual.  I believe it was best said by the television character Dr. Gregory House as &quot;It's a basic truth of the human condition that everybody lies.  The only variable is about what.&quot;  (&quot;Three&quot;)  So lying is a part of being human.

      • If you prefer to get around by bicycle, you would love Seattle.   Seattle.gov reports &quot;Seattle has about 45 miles of shared-use paths, 120 miles of on-street, striped bike lanes and sharrows, and about 120 miles of signed bike routes.&quot;  Getting around Seattle is a pretty easy thing in this day and age.

      • The point of strong excitement during this scene comes when he opens the ship and knocks out the alien and says, &quot;Welcome to earth&quot; ( Independence Day) .  The feelings that audiences get from this may vary but it does have a strong effect on emotions.
      • Works Cited
      • Independence Day .  Dir. Emmerich, Roland.  Perf. Will Smith, Jeff
      •     Goldblum.  20th Century Fox, 1996.  DVD.

      • According to Mel Gibson, &quot;Acting is like lying.  The art of lying well.  I'm paid to tell elaborate lies.&quot; (Mel)  This is an interesting quote to be sure, and yet, it doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of the complexities which define lying and acting.

    • 16. Remember...
        • Lead up to the quote by telling the reader about the quote, why the reader should care.
        • Give the quote with the final punctuation after the parenthetical note.
        • The parenthetical note contains the first element of the Works Cited entry in parenthesis.
          • (Tolkien), (&quot;Three Stories&quot;), ( Independence Day )
        • After the quote, explain its significance.
    • 17. Any questions?
      • Alright, make sure your name is on your freewrites, turn them in, and get ready for peer review!
