How to use the MLA Style to Cite for the Annotation Project
As an editor and annotator, your job is to provide as thorough as possible enrichment to the story. You are trying to produce “the whole story” so that your reader can appreciate what Zoline has done with her story. In some cases, the definition or information may not be clear as to how it ties to the story. In those cases, please take the extra step and explicate it in relation to the story. For example, for the King Solomon example, you might want to introduce how this introduces the good mother, bad mother conflict….
Many students have utilized one source that doesn’t quite give the whole picture for the words/terms/concepts/allusions they are annotating.
Please cite ALL your sources in a footnote (go to insert footnote, bottom of page). If you use more than one, write a citation for both within the same footnote.
The author's name (if known).”The Full Title of the Document in Quotation Marks.” The Title of the Complete Work (if applicable) in italics. the date of publication or last revision (if available). <the full http address (URL) enclosed within angle brackets> (the date of visit in parentheses).
