How it All Works Together

How it All Works Together

Learning Outcome

After completing this chapter, you will be able to:

  • Create and format a works cited list and in-text citations in MLA Style.

As we have shown, works cited list entries and in-text citations should match each other. They work together to clearly indicate which sources provide support to your assignment.

You wouldn’t want to wear mismatched socks, just like you don’t want mismatched citations! You want your in-text and reference list citations (and socks) to match each other!

In the next activity, you will practice matching in-text citations with their works cited list entries.
