In-Text Citations
When using In-text citations, remember:
-The quote/excerpt/paraphrase goes first
-The quote/excerpt/paraphrase should be in quotation marks

When organizing citations by authors you should always organize it in alphabetical order. Say you have two citations one citation has a author with a "A" the other has a "Z". The citation with the "A" will go first then the citation with the "Z" will go second.

When Spacing the document should be double spaced to do this
1) High lite all word in your document.
2) Right click it
3) Select "Paragraph".
4) Go under "Spacing" go to "At" type in "2"
