Practice Creating Works Cited Entries and Parenthetical Citations
Information from a variety of sources is listed below. On a separate sheet of paper, create a practice “Works Cited” page, using the the EasyBib and How to-Works Cited buttons on your Writer's Workshop class Web page. At the bottom of your page, write each matching parenthetical citation.
Sample Source Information
· Double space all lines on the page by selecting “Format,” “Paragraph,” “Line spacing,” and “Double.”
· Entries must be in alphabetical order by author’s last name or, if name is not available, by the first word of the title which is not an article or preposition.
· For source entries, use a hanging indent (set in paragraph formatting).
· Capitalize titles appropriately. Book titles are italicized and article titles appear in quotation marks.
· Reprinted works require the original publication date as well as the date the reprint was published. The original publication date comes after the title.
· Full dates require the day-month-year format: 1 Dec. 2003
· Multiple works by the same author are listed alphabetically by title, not by date. Use three hyphens followed by a period in place of the author's name in subsequent works by the same exact author(s).
· Give authors' full names. List up to three authors to a work; with four or more authors, type the first author’s name (last name, first) plus the two words "et al."
· Your entries must match the parenthetical citations in the body of your paper.
