Cite it Right! - MLA Format

Cite it Right! - MLA Format | Proper Grammar Rocks!                  APA and MLA Writing Made Easy | Scoop.it
You can always count on the frustrated sighs of high school and college students when their teacher assigns a research paper WITH a bibliography. The bibliography is always the kicker; you mean I have to keep track of sources and cite them?
Linda Ross's insight:

The Modern Language Association of America is responsible for the MLA Style Manual, which contains a set of rules and guidelines for academic writing that instructors use on a regular basis. This is a great resource and is sure to take the headache out of siting references.

MLA - It's All About Formatting & Style

MLA - It's All About Formatting & Style | Proper Grammar Rocks!                  APA and MLA Writing Made Easy | Scoop.it

MLA (Modern Language Association) style is most commonly used to write papers and cite sources within the liberal arts and humanities fields.

Linda Ross's insight:

This is a website I have used for my college writing assignments. It's an excellent resource to keep you on track with your writing and provides a variety of topics that will be useful in college and beyond.

 

According to the website "MLA style specifies guidelines for formatting manuscripts and using the English language in writing. MLA style also provides writers with a system for referencing their sources through parenthetical citation in their essays and Works Cited pages.  If you are asked to use MLA format, be sure to consult the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers (7th edition)."

The APA Tutorial That Breaks It Down

The APA Tutorial That Breaks It Down | Proper Grammar Rocks!                  APA and MLA Writing Made Easy | Scoop.it

The APA Style website provides information about the 6th edition of the APA Publication Manual, including how to format a bibliography, in-text citations, format headings, tables, figures and the table of contents.

Linda Ross's insight:

I like this site because it gives you "Quick Answers" for references, formatting, tutorials and many resources to help with improving your writing and really getting the hang of the APA Style.

 

The website states that the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, offers sound guidance for writing with simplicity, power, and concision. APA Style has been adapted by many disciplines and is used by writers around the world.

Get to the Point, STOP Redundancy!

Get to the Point, STOP Redundancy! | Proper Grammar Rocks!                  APA and MLA Writing Made Easy | Scoop.it

A common mistake writers encounter is redunancy. However, most readers want you to get the point; no need to say it twice. Learn how to eliminate duplication for concise writing.


Via Robert Chazz Chute
Linda Ross's insight:

Remove the repetition for brief, "to the point" writing. Redundancy happens in conversation and is a natural occurrence but when it comes to writing, on the other hand, it should be avoided in all instances.
