Instructions on How Paper Need To Look:
• All papers must be double spaced and typed in a standard 12p font (Times New Roman).
• Margins should not be larger than one-inch on the top, bottom, and sides of the page.
• Type in the upper left (or right) hand corner of your paper: your name, your instructor’s name, the class and section number (ENGL 1150-51), the name of the assignment, and the draft (first draft, second draft, third and final draft, etc.).
• The center heading of your paper must be a title other than the name of the assignment (for example, something like “A Narrator’s Blindness in Raymond Carver’s ‘Cathedral’” not “First Reading Response Paper”).
• Italicize the titles of books, research journals, magazines, newspapers, and plays. Use “Quotation marks” around titles of articles, blogs, short stories, published essays, and poems.
• Your writing must utilize MLA style citation when referencing outside resources. If you use words that are not your own, be sure to put quotes around them and to credit the original author. This is an essential step in avoiding penalties for plagiarism. Every draft must follow MLA formatting standards.
