MLA Documentation Exercise

MLA Documentation Exercise
Main Objective: Cite Primary and Secondary Sources in MLA Format

Secondary Objective: Use research to develop a literary analysis

It is important to use a citation format to prevent plagiarism i.e. cheating. There are dire consequences if the instructor suspects a student has committed this
misdeed. That is why it is important for us to review some basic practices of documentation before we begin any writing assignments.

You will have several tasks to complete. To complete these tasks, use a grammar handbook, such as the Harbrace Handbook or A Writer’s Reference. These are handbooks
used in our English 110 and 111 courses. Any current grammar handbook can be used. If you do not have a handbook, use one of the following websites:
