MLA Format

Isn't it nice to realize that your teachers aren't just making this stuff up?

When writing ANY academic paper, be sure to follow the rules of the MLA for your formatting.  This includes font, spacing, titles, headings, footnotes, and on and on and on.  

For additional resources, check out the Purdue OWL.

Happy writing!

Did you know ...

These are all fun facts gleaned from the website, OMG Facts.
The student, DB, introduced our third period class to the site, and now we are all hooked!

Have a great weekend!
Happy learning!
