Planners: Writing Day today

  • Task for today: Go into 'edit' mode on your name page and start a new page titled [[[Informative Essay]]] followed by your name.
    • Give your essay a title, heading level 1 (example: + History of Grimm's Fairy Tales)
    • Then, start a section called 'Works Cited', also a heading level 1 (code: + Works Cited). In this section, list your sources in an MLA bibliographic format:
      • Book: author last name, first name. Title of Book. City of Publication: Publisher, Year of Publication. Medium of Publication.
      • Article: Author last name, first name. "Title of Article." Title of Periodical.Day Month Year: pages. Medium of publication.
      • For other types of sources, consult the Purdue OWL's MLA works cited page.
    • When you have all of your sources formatted, alphabetize your sources based on the first part of the entry (usually the author's last name).
    • Why do this first? It makes MLA citations easier: tip sheet
    • Finally, using your outline as a guide, begin writing your essay.
      • Remember, each paragraph is a minimum of 5 sentences.
