Basic layout you should know this
Basic LayoutYou should know this!

  • Catchy title – memorable, fitting, etc.

  • Introduction: Make a great first impression. You should find a catchy, unique way to introduce the topic of your critical analysis. Your intro leads to your thesis statement (last sentence of the intro paragraph)


  • Body paragraphs all connect and support your thesis.

  • Use topic sentences and transitions.

    • Quote your sources (author pg)

    • Paraphrase information from your sources and/or the novel (author pg)

    • We will continue to review this formatting:

      • HOWEVER – USE YOUR WRITING BOOK! IT WILL HELP YOU!


  • Placement and Punctuation Rules:

  • Put your MLA citations close to the quotation, information, paraphrase, or summary you are documenting.

  • At the end of a sentence before the final punctuation:Wayland Hand reports on a folk belief that going to sleep on a rug made of bearskin can relieve backache (183).

  • After the part of the sentence to which the citation applies:The folk belief that “sleeping on a bear rug will cure backache” (Hand 183) illustrates the magic of external objects producing results inside the body.

  • At the end of a long quotation set off as a block, after the end punctuation with a space before the parentheses:Many baseball players are superstitious, especially pitchers. Some pitchers refuse to walk anywhere on the day of the game in the belief that every little exertion subtracts from their playing strength. One pitcher would never put on his cap until the game started and would not wear it at all on the days he did not pitch. (Gmelch 280)
