My significant writing project demonstrates my ability implement the work of others using MLA formatting well. A good example of this is my parenthetical citations. Here’s an example from the third paragraph of this paper:
“The two note that this rise in sensitivity and its encouragement throughout college campuses “is creating a culture in which everyone must think twice before speaking up, lest they face charges of insensitivity, aggression, or worse” (Lukianoff and Haidt 263).”
After this quote I name both of the authors in by last name in the order they’re listed in the original article. On top of this, their names are in parentheses, and the page number is listed after. This is all MLA formatted.
Another representation of my MLA formatting is my works cited page. The formatting was messed up when I exported the paper to eportfolio, so here’s a picture:
As you can see, the works are listed in alphabetical order by the authors’ last names. One difficulty I had with these citations was citing a work that I viewed in a collection of others’ works. I had never done that prior to this semester. I did some research and formatted each source properly, though.
