WHAT IS MLA CITATION?

MLA is a way of citing your source:  explaining where you got your information and giving credit to the authors of the books, articles, and websites you uses. 

There are two parts to MLA Citation: 
1.  In-Text Citations  
2.  Works Cited List

PLAGIARISM IS...

Using someone else's work
Copying someone else's words without citing them
Paraphrasing someone else’s words or ideas without citing them
Using your own paper or assignment for more than one class

Consequences can range from failing a paper to suspension from school (see Cabrillo College Academic Integrity Policy p. 4)
