Tagline: Changing your tagline in WordPress.
RR Format: Reading responses are a mix of summary and personal response that begins with a direct quotation from the reading. Consider the quotation a point of entry, both for you as a writer and for the reader. RRs have a 400 word minimum, which does not include the direct quotation at the beginning of the text.
MLA In-Text Citations: We will get into MLA formatting issues more directly in a week or so, but for now, use the following rule as a guideline: When you quote directly from a text, include quotation marks at both the beginning and ending of the passage, followed by a parenthetical citation, which includes the author’s last name and the page number/numbers from which the quote is taken on the outside of the end quotes, with punctuation following. “(Author’s Last Name Page#).
