Getting Things Done: Your brain is for having ideas, not holding them. (8:21) Don’t waste brainpower trying to remember all you need to do (that is terribly inefficient use of your brain); instead: write it down, prioritize, check things off as they are completed -- Google Keep is great for this!

Citing Sources

MLA 8 help from OWL (Purdue University)

Citation Machine


Parenthetical vs. footnotes:

MLA format calls for in-text, or parenthetical citations. This includes a brief citation within the body of the text that indicates the source of the information being used, and clearly refers to the full citation in a Works Cited list. i.e.: (Smith 81). See a simple explanation with examples on Purdue’s OWL Writing Lab site.

If your teacher requires footnotes, you may find an explanation with examples on the Purdue’s OWL Writing Lab site.
