Paper Format: MLA Style

Different disciplines use different formatting styles. It is important that you know which style is expected of you in any given class. The accepted style in English classes is MLA (or Modern Language Association) style, so we will be using that one. Any work that you submit that does not use this style correctly will not be accepted. This week's class is all about making sure that everyone is familiar with MLA style.
