ENG 1213: MLA Worksheet
MLA style requires attention to detail, planning, and editing. For this assignment, you will organize information into a MLA Works Cited page, and
you will show me how to cite that information in-text (see PART 2). The information I give you is in no particular order, and for web sites, I only
give you the address – you must get the rest of the information yourself. I also do not format the titles of essays or books; you must discover the
proper way to format each source yourself based on the guidelines in your book (or some other legitimate source). This assignment is worth 25 points
and is due on Thursday, August 30th.

PART 2: using parenthesis, indicate how you would use each source in an in-text citation. List each entry on your page in the order it appears in
your works cited. For entries that would require page numbers in the parenthesis, I’ve given you total page numbers above, so simply select a page
number for the purposes of this exercise. For example, if one of your entries was for the 165-paged book Atlantis by Mark Herron, you would put:
