How Should I Cite My Sources?

Smore_Flyer__CC_Copyright_PD_-_Google_DocsAt MJGDS, we use the MLA (Modern Language Association) citation format. This standard method for source citation helps trace the sources you used in your research. Depending on the type of source you are using (website, magazine article, video, etc.), you must include certain information in your citation. Once you have properly formatted all your citations, you will list them in alphabetical order by author’s last name or article title if no author is listed on a separate Works Cited page at the end of your paper or post. Make sure you follow your teacher’s guidelines for formatting the margins, spacing, and indentations.

Students in Kindergarten through Grade 4 use a modified version of the MLA citation style format. Please follow these links for grade-specific examples:
