1. Please download the "Instructions for MLA Writing," and combine your introduction and Works Cited to this paper, and write in this document. 

2. Please label your attachment file with your name on it:'Your Name,'_ 2nd MLA Draft. 

3. Write the body of your MLA paper by using your developed topic sentences a the first sentence of the paragraph, and give examples with in-text citations when you refer to other authors' work. Please refer to:

     a) OWL Purdue MLA Guidelines online link for your in-text citations, do not do an 'Obakata' copy/paste;

     b) The OWL Purdue sample paper (attached in classes 05 and 06) will also help;

     c) The MLA midterm assessment guidelines (attached) shows you all the criteria for a successful essay 

4. Write your conclusion like the second paragraph of the introduction in the past tense, reworded, with no new information, and the last sentence should be impactful for the reader. 
    You can also refer to the conclusion section of the MLA midterm assessment guidelines. 

   However, the first sentence of your conclusion should start with a signal like, "In conclusion," and then write a similar sentence as the last sentence of the first paragraph of your introduction in the past tense. 
   That sentence is the topic thesis statement. 

5. Put your paper in Criterion and Veritus.

6. Then send your second draft via email by Friday 07/17/2020 by 3:00 PM. It is because you'll need to wait for me to correct all nine papers.
