Summary

Summary

This manual recognizes that preparing essays, research papers, and other academic written assignments is particularly difficult for even the best students if English is their second language. Ten chapters instruct high-intermediate-through-advanced ESL/EFL students in planning the paper, doing standard and computer-based research to compile information, drawing up a formal outline, documenting the paper, then drafting, revising and editing it so that it is ready for presentation. An appendix presents a sample essay, a sample bibliography, and a research paper that follow the most recent and approved MLA style of documentation. Two methods are shown, one giving MLA parenthetical citations, the other employing an endnote style. MLA guidelines that cover citations for electronic sources are also given.
