Please see attached for all instructions and an example of this type of essay (toulmin method). Also attached is the grading rubric. No plagiarism as everything is submitted through Turnitin. This for an Advanced Composition class. Grammar, structure, etc. is very important.

It’s that easy. It’s all about creating a properly formatted works cited entry. Here’s some more info on how to do so:
Use the MLA guide in our textbook or the Purdue OWL (https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/05/) to identify which type of format is required for your particular kind of source. Keep in mind the format changes depending on a few factors, including whether the source has one author, more than three authors, or no author. Similarly, format changes depending on the type of source you’re using: an online article, a print book, etc.
If you plan to use one of the articles in our textbook as a source, be sure you use the “work in an anthology” format. If you’re using Stephanie Hanes’s article, for instance, Lunsford is not the author–Hanes is. So we wouldn’t put Lunsford’s name in the author spot of the entry. Instead, Hanes would come first, followed by the article title, followed by information about the book. Use the “work in an anthology” format on this page: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/06/
Finally, if you’re having trouble formatting the hanging indent that is required for works cited entries, watch this short and sweet YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7rtKPYfhk0
