We had another busy class. I can't believe how quickly the time passes in our lesson.
We learned how to make a bibliography for a research paper. A bibliography is an alphabetical list of all the sources you use for your research paper. When you organize your source information in your bibliography, you need to arrange it using the MLA style (MLA=Modern Language Association).
MLA referencing is one of the ways you can document your sources in your research paper. This style is used in the humanities, especially for writing about language and literature. Your AWSB does not include every format for all the different types of sources. If you can ‘t find the MLA format for a source in your AWSB, you can refer to this website for the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL). It has the formats for all types of sources:

Most of the information from our lessons can be found in the Writing --> Research Paper section on the website.
Additional MLA Referencing:
Some students asked me during class for MLA referencing for You Tube videos, documentaries and books with no authors. You can find the format for these references in the file at the end of today's summary.
