ESLR: Reflective Communicator – Think, read, write, listen, speak well
Objective: After taking notes on proper MLA formatting, you will complete a worksheet that will help you create your Works Cited page for your research paper, showing that you can use these conventions in your own writing.
Task: Write a research paper in which you explain the political situation leading up to the (attempted) assassination, the motivation behind the (attempted) assassination, the nature of the conspiracy involved with the (attempted) assassination, a description of the (attempted) assassination itself, and the political aftermath of the (attempted) assassination of the political figure.
If you listed an author’s name or the title of an article anywhere in your paper, then your reader is going to wonder where you found this information. The MLA Works Cited page tells your reader where to find the information that you quote (or paraphrase) in the research paper.
Adding a Works Cited page makes your research paper more credible.
When you are in college, a Works Cited page will be required in order to substantiate (def: prove) that you are not plagiarizing someone else’s work.
