Question:

How do I create an in text citation in MLA?

Inactive
Melissa M.
Answer:

An in text citation tells the reader where you got the information from. You need an in text citation if you are directly quoting or have paraphrased the information. For MLA format, you need to take the authors name and the page number and put that in parentheses after the paraphrase or quotation. Example: "The quick brown fox jumped over the dog" (Jackson 2). The brown fox decided to jump over the dog quickly (Jackson 2).

Answer:

The author's purpose is the reason they wrote the piece of literature. The purpose can be to inform, to persuade, to amuse, etc. There are different factors that can help you to figure out the author's purpose including the type of language they use and how the literature makes you feel.

Question:

How do I write a thesis statement?

Answer:

A thesis statement should be the main idea of your essay. A thesis statement is typically the last sentence of your introduction paragraph and contains the main ideas that you will be talking about in your body paragraphs. I would suggest you figure out the main ideas of your body paragraphs and structure your thesis statement around these ideas.
