  10. 10. ?<br />SO…<br />WHAT DO we do?<br />
  11. 11. Our hero come to save the day<br />MLA<br />Modern Language Association<br />
  12. 12. MLA lets us Cite Sources<br />What does this mean?<br />Cite = tell<br />Sources = where you found your information<br />So to cite sources means to give credit where credit is due…<br />to tell others where you found your information<br />
  13. 13. KIS has decided to use MLA citation for all student work.<br />You’ll be using this until you graduate, and probably in college too.<br />SO IT’S WORTH KNOWING HOW TO DO IT WELL.<br />Let’s take a look at how to cite sources with MLA…<br />
  14. 14. Step 1:<br />Find the quote you want to use in your paper.<br />
  15. 15. Step 2:<br />Copy the quote in your paper exactly as it appears in the book, using quotation marks.<br />“His ideas and actions know no political boundaries.” <br />
  16. 16. Step 3:<br />Find 3 things about your source:<br />Title 2. Author 3. Page Number<br />The 14th Dalai Lama<br />Whitney Stewart<br />114<br />
  17. 17. Step 4:<br />Put the quote into a sentence for your paper that includes both the title and the author. <br />In The 14th Dalai Lama, Whitney Stewart suggests that the Dalai Lama impacts many different people, saying, “His ideas and actions know no political boundaries.” <br />Note: make sure you italicize the title!<br />
  18. 18. Step 5:<br />Put the page number that you found the quote on in parentheses at the very end of the sentence. <br />In The 14th Dalai Lama, Whitney Stewart suggests that the Dalai Lama impacts many different people, saying, “His ideas and actions know no political boundaries” (114).<br />Notice: The full stop has now moved from the end of the quote to after the parentheses, at the end of the sentence.<br />
  19. 19. Step 6:<br />Create a Works Cited page as the last page of your entire paper.<br />Works Cited<br />
  20. 20. Step 6:<br />Find the following information about your source:<br />Author<br />Title<br />Publishing Company<br />Place of Publication <br />Year of Publication<br />Whitney Stewart<br />The 14th Dalai Lama<br />Learner Publications<br />Minneapolis<br />1996<br />
  21. 21. Step 7: <br />Record this information on your Works Cited Page<br />Use the following format:<br />Lastname, Firstname. Title of Book. Place of Publication: Publisher, Year of Publication. Medium of Publication.<br />Works Cited<br />Stewart, Whitney. The 14th Dalai Lama. Minneapolis: Lerner Publications, 1996. Print.<br />Notice: There is specific punctuation used at specific places. You must be careful to do this correctly!<br />
  22. 22. So there you have the basics of MLA Citation<br />But one more thing…<br />
  23. 23. What if you take an idea from a source and use it in your paper, BUT you don’t use the exact quote?<br />Do you still have to Cite it?<br />
  24. 24. YES!<br />Here’s an example…<br />
  25. 25. I want to include the IDEA that the what the Dalai Lama does impacts people of all political backgrounds. <br />I did not come up with this IDEA myself; I read it in Whitney Stewart’s book.<br />So, I need to say so in my paper. <br />Here’s one way I could do that:<br />According to Whitney Stewart in The 14th Dalai Lama, what the Dalai Lama does impacts people from all political backgrounds (114). <br />Even though I didn’t use a direct quote, I cited the information just the same, since I got this idea from someone else.<br />
  26. 26. Any time you use someone else’s words, thoughts, or ideas, you must give them credit in your paper!<br />
  27. 27. Now, there’s a whole lot moreto citing sources with the MLA style.<br />We can’t cover everything now.<br />You’ll learn as you go – with the help of your teachers! <br />
