familiar with the
terms before you
get started


Source- book, magazine or website from which you get information

Bibliography Cards- Index cards (5) with the 5 sources of information- 1 source on each card
(On the card you need the pertinent info like author’s name, title, date posted and
date you found it and the full web address -URL)

Citation – the actual information, quote, statistics, etc. that you take from the source

Citation Cards- an index card with the actual information from the source, you need 5 cards
with 5 bits of info, from 5 different sources (sources written on back)

Outline- a written spatial organizer that will show the order in which your citations will be
presented.
I
II.
A.

include a Works Cited Page and Parenthetic Notation

Works Cited Page- a list of the 5 sources of information used in the paper, it must be written
using proper MLA format

MLA format- form of giving credit to sources designed by the Modern Languages Association

Parenthetic Notation- method of giving credit to a source within the text of the paper. After the
citation is used in the paper; put the author’s last name in parentheses with the page
number if it is a book or magazine, e.g. (Brestle, 10).
Notes: period comes after parentheses
if website probably no page number
if no author use the first key word of the title of webpage

Final Draft- revised paper including Works Cited Page, 5 Citations, 5 Parenthetic Notations, a
Title Page and Cover (cheap plastic will not be returned)
