Some MLA Guidelines for Debates

To cite the class handouts, you should follow this format:

Last, First. “Title.” Class handout. 16 Dec. 2010.

Here’s how it would look with two sources from the first packet:

“The Nations’ Report Card: Trends in Academic Progress in Reading and 

       Mathematics 2008.” Class handout. 16 Dec. 2010.

(Leave out the author’s name because there is no author.)

Kohn, Alfie. “The Dangerous Myth of Grade Inflation.” Class handout. 16

     Dec. 2010.

For information on how to cite a Youtube video (which you should be VERY careful about using!), follow this format:

“Segment Title.” Director/Creator (if available). Title of database or

      Website. Year of publication. Format. Date of access.

An example is:

“The L-Team.” Williams College Libraries. YouTube. 2007. Web. 27

     Aug. 2009.

Remember that you need to double space your works cited throughout and alphabetize the entries!
