MLA 8

MLA came out with a new citation plan over the summer. It is designed to make it easier for you to cite any source. Please watch this video before citing, and follow the directions. It is actually pretty simple. Never thought I'd say that about citing!  In the attachments, I've given you a worksheet to create your citations. Fill in what you have, leave off what you don't, and if you need more than one container, "insert" another worksheet after #9 of the first. A container is the holder of the work you are citing. Let's say you are citing a magazine article you found in a database. The first container is the magazine the article is in. The second container is the database the magazine is in. Confused? Watch the video!! It'll all make sense
