Activity 4H Using Commas Between Adjectives (p. 39)

Below is the second paragraph of the sample essay. If a sentence includes a comma that should be omitted, cross it out with an X. If a sentence is missing a comma, add one and circle it.

Asthma is hard on every single individual who has it because it sometimes makes breathing difficult. A trigger, such as smoke, dust, mold, or pet dander, can set it off. For some people, vigorous, energetic exercise is a trigger. Schools can set up reasonable, practical policies to help students control their asthma. For example, schools should keep their air clean. Considerate school leaders should prohibit all smoking on school property. In addition, students should be allowed to keep their inhalers. Schools with strict, written policies on medicines should make exceptions for students with asthma.

Learning Goals

  • Diagram the following:

  • Wealth, poverty, happiness, and greed were common themes in the writing of Leo Tostoy.

  • Define and apply MLA format


Access prior knowledge1

Access Prior Knowledge

  • Why do you think teachers request that your paper be formatted a specific way.

  • What is an example of a specific type of formatting?


Mla format

MLA Format

  • MLA – Modern Language Association – primarily used in humanities (anthropology) and liberal arts (English).

  • 12 point Times New Roman Font or similar (Something basic and easy to read)

  • Double Space

  • One-inch margins on all sides

  • Indent paragraphs (5 spaces tab)


Mla format title

MLA Format - Title

  • Title and identification MLA does not require a title page.

  • On the first page of your paper, place your name, your instructor’s name, the course title, and the date on separate lines against the left margin. Then center your title. Click here for a sample first page, or go to the next slide.


Example of the first page

Example of the First Page


Mla pagination and organization

MLA – Pagination and Organization

  • Pagination Put the page number preceded by your last name in the upper right corner of each page, one-half inch below the top edge. Use Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3, and so on).

  • Organization

  • 5 paragraphs containing 3 to 5 sentences each.

  • 1st Paragraph is the introduction and the last sentence should contain the thesis statement.

  • 2nd - 4th paragraphs are the body.

  • 5th Paragraph is the closing and should restate the thesis statement. 


Mla in text citations author named in a single phrase

MLA – In-Text Citations – Author named in a single phrase

  • 1. Author named in a signal phrase Ordinarily, introduce the material being cited with a signal phrase that includes the author’s name. In addition to preparing readers for the source, the signal phrase allows you to keep the parenthetical citation brief.

  • Frederick Lane reports that employers do not necessarily have to use software to monitor how their employees use the Web: employers can “use a hidden video camera pointed at an employee’s monitor” and even position a camera ”so that a number of monitors [can] be viewed at the same time” (147).


Example of in text citation

Example of in-text citation


Mla in text citations author named in parenthesis

MLA – In Text Citations Author named in parenthesis

  • 2. Author named in parentheses If a signal phrase does not name the author, put the author’s last name in parentheses along with the page number. Use no punctuation between the name and the page number.

  • Companies can monitor employees’ every keystroke without legal penalty, but they may have to combat low morale as a result (Lane 129).


Mla in text citations author unknown

MLA – In Text Citations – Author Unknown

  • 3. Author unknown Either use the complete title in a signal phrase or use a short form of the title in parentheses. Titles of books are italicized; titles of articles are put in quotation marks.

  • A popular keystroke logging program operates invisibly on workers’ computers yet provides supervisors with details of the workers’ online activities (“Automatically”).


Mla in text citations page unknown

MLA – In Text Citations – Page # Unknown

  • 4. Page number unknownDo not include the page number if a work lacks page numbers, as is the case with many Web sources. Even if a printout from a Web site shows page numbers, treat the source as unpaginated in the in-text citation because not all printouts give the same page numbers. (When the pages of a Web source are stable, as in PDF files, supply a page number in your in-text citation.)

  • As a 2005 study by Salary.com and America Online indicates, the Internet ranked as the top choice among employees for ways of wasting time on the job; it beat talking with co-workers—the second most popular method—by a margin of nearly two to one (Frauenheim).

  • If a source has numbered paragraphs or sections, use “par.” (or “pars.”) or “sec.” (or “secs.”) in the parentheses: (Smith, par. 4). Notice that a comma follows the author’s name in this case.


Mla in text citations using websites

MLA – In Text Citations – Using Websites

  • McCord thinks Woods is an excellent player, but finds the future of his game unpredictable (Schwartz).

  • "Eldrick (Tiger) Woods, now 38 year of age has had an unprecedented career," ("About Tiger Woods").
