Students, I have designed this page to assist you with the different aspects of writing we will be doing in this class, and I have given you a tutorial on the the basic steps in the writing process. I will be covering the individual apsects through several mini-lessons, but these resources will still be available for the entire school year if you need a refresher.
Research Paper ~ References, Citations, & Support
For further assistance with including MLA in-text citations and works cited references for our research paper, please visit the appropriate links under Academic Resources.
To assist you in becoming better writers, I recommend that you try using the Hemingway Editor. This resource allows you to copy portions of your writing assignments into the page, and it will give you suggestions to make your writing more clear. You can also use this application to see if your writing is at, above, or below grade level. We will use this resource during peer editing and writing self-assessments throughout the school year.
Although we will be using MLA formatting in my English classes, I have provided you some links to APA formatting on my academic resources page since it is widely used in science, education, and psychology courses among others. Even if you do not need it during middle or high school, this information might be helpful when you are in college!
