September 7 – MLA Format

Today we are discussing MLA formatting guidelines:

– Double-spaced
– 12-point font
– Times New Roman
– 1” margins
– Only ONE space after periods. Why is this still a thing?

– 0.5 inch margin for headers
– Pages are numbered in right-hand corner (Last Name #).

First page:
– No title page.
– Include name, teacher’s name, class name, date in upper-left corner

– Titles are not bold, underlined, or italicized
– Capitalize the First Letter of All Words (Except “a,” “of,” “or,” “and,” or “the”)


Here is an example of how this should look:


Another great resource is the Purdue Online Writing Lab.
