Mla format is required!

Think about an envelope you're going to put in the mail. What would happen if you put the mailing address in the wrong place? It won't get where you need it to go!Many things in life have standards, or a set of rules. Try playing soccer or rock, paper, scissors without a ruleset!MLA format is the set of rules to follow so every essay looks the same.

Grammar & Spelling

5

For this project, you will be graded on your use of grammar and spelling.

While I don't typically grade for spelling or grammar in writing assignments of written-response questions in quizzes and tests, essays are different. You have to picture essays as if they are works that will be published for tens of thousands to see (your work won't be published in this class ... but maybe your future writing will be one day!).Treat your essay writing with the respect it deserves. Always reread your work (out loud if possible). Have someone else read it, if possible.

CLICK HERE FOR THEFIVE THINGS

Things to know about grammar & spelling

Spelling, do you see the red lines under words? That tells you there is something wrong! Blue lines might indicate a grammar problem.Also: in the search at the top of Word (by the lightbulb), type Spelling and you can have it search for errors.

1

Sentence fragment, be sure that every sentence has a subject and a verb and expresses a complete thought. If you read it out loud and it sounds like it needs more ... it probably does!

2

Paragraphs, be sure you are separating your essay into sections using the "enter" key on your keyboard.

3

Run-on sentences, the most common mistake in eighth grade. Two complete thoughts should be separated by a period or a conjunction such as "and", "or", "but". Do not separate with just a comma.

4

Things to watch for:

Grammar & Spelling

5

Capitalization, be sure to use an uppercase letter only at the start of the sentence or for a proper noun.
