Citation Guide

There are many ways to get guidance and support when doing research to ensure that you are citing your sources correctly: your teacher may give you some guidelines, you can consult an online citation site (ex. EasyBib), you can refer to your agenda (page R-5) or you can refer to this MLA Citation Guide. Unless your teacher has specifically asked for a different format, most middle school classes use MLA (Modern Language Association).
