Your Task
You have been hired by the governor. Heneeds an analytical report on what happened to Tim Cole's case, since the governor was not in office at the time. He is trying to decide if he will build a monument to Tim Cole or not. He needs to know the affects both options will have on the community. He has asked for an analytical report on his desk in a week with two article sources cited using MLA format describing the case.
Mallin said, "He smoked the whole time" (Williams).
When do you use in-text citations?

Quote = "Exact words"

Paraphrase = Putting someone else's ideas into your own words

In-text Citation = (Williams) aka the author's name who provided you with the information
Why do you use in-text citations?
Since you didn't personally gather the information, you need to show HOW you know this information. This creates TRUST with your reader.
Work Cited
Now if I just see you keep writing (Williams) and (Goodwyn) all in your text, I wonder who these people are. Are they creditable? Work Cited tells me the information I need to look up the original source.
It is the Last Page (separate from all other text)
