Create a tri-fold pamphlet that presents info on your topic
Present the highlights of your topic
Connect your topic to themes present in the novel
Make sure you follow the rubric
ALL INFORMATION USED IN YOUR PROJECT MUST BE CITED USING MLA FORMAT!
This is a list of all the sources you used to help with the project
Any clip art or photos that you find online MUST be cited as well
Include in-text citations in the text of the pamphlet – this step is to give credit to the people or organizations that gave you the info that you used in your project
Have the book, article, or website in front of you (DUH!)
Go to a citation-building website
Some websites will allow you to copy and paste the website address or enter the ISBN (the # on your book) and can automatically create it for you; do that, or enter the information in the boxes it provides for you
When you have finished entering info in all the boxes (MAKE SURE TO CAPITALIZE THINGS LIKE A NORMAL HUMAN BEING, PLEASE!), click on “create citation”
Copy the citation down WORD FOR WORD.
The entire page should be double-spaced
Center the title and title it: Works Cited
List the citations in alphabetical order based on the first thing listed in each citation
Every line but the first line of each citation should be indented (this is called the hanging indent – super easy to format)
