CITING SOURCES: Words to know:

Cite - refer to, make reference to, mention, allude to (site vs. cite)

    • Anything and everything that came from someone else: specific information, quote, paraphrase, ideas

In-text citation - (Last name) - This is the tag that lets the reader know where to look in your Works Cited page to find the source. If you mention the author in the sentence, you don’t need the parenthetical tag.

Works Cited - An alphabetical list of all the works/sources that you used in your project. It needs to be formatted exactly as MLA prescribes.

Bibliography - An alphabetical list of all the works/sources that informed your project that you read/consulted even if you did not cite them in the project. It can/should be annotated. It needs to be formatted exactly as MLA prescribes.
