Lecture 7: MLA, Research, Documentation and Attributions to Sources
MLA Style Guidelines and Formatting:
ResearchNo Outside Sources RequiredAttributions:
Remember that there are key differences between quoting, paraphrasing, and summarizing, so below, I have included a few links to handouts that will help
you through the process of deciding when to quote, when to paraphrase, and when to summarize from sources you have found, and you
are expected to engage these handouts to the point where you can handle these skills successfully.
Work with these handouts:
Paraphrase: Write it in Your Own Words
Quoting, Paraphrasing, and Summarizing
Very Important: Keep quotations short, by which I mean a short sentence or two once or twice in an essay; I want to read your
the writings of others.
