How to Write YOUR Cited Commentary

*Avoid just summarizing

  1. Reread article/essay/poem.
  2. What are YOU thinking?
  3. Write about it.
  4. Go back and find where info in sources can be used to back you up or enhance your point (that’s what you quote &/or paraphrase).
  5. Use MLA in-text citations.
  6. Add a Works Cited page.

Deadline:  Draft #4 needs to be uploaded for WRITE CLUB no later than classtime tomorrow!
