Works Cited

Gubar, Susan. Race Changes: White Skin, Black Face in American Culture. New York: Oxford UP, 1997.

Double check that the order of components, punctuation, and indentation all conform to the example above. Ask me if you have a question about how to cite your source.___

  1. Have you incorporated quotes that are connected to your sentences? ____

When Young Goodman Brown calls his wife’s name, he feels as if the forest is mocking his spiritual confusion: “the echoes of the forest mocked him crying, ‘Faith! Faith!’ as if bewildered wretches were seeking her all through the wilderness” (Hawthorne 531).

  • None of the quotes should be floating on their own. They all must be attached to your sentence (often with a colon :). Take control of the quote by introducing it in you own words and following up with your own words explaining how the quote fits into your argument. Have you started and ended paragraphs NOT with a quote, but with your own words and analysis?____

4. What is your thesis statement? Is it arguable and specific?

With his credibility as a journalist and his humorous yet logical style, Pollan shows how the industrialized food system has pushed us towards unhealthy eating habits.

5. Underline your thesis and the topic sentence of each subsequent paragraph. ____

6. Have you given a parenthetical citation at the end of all quotes or information in your own words taken from a source? Have you used the author’s lat name or an abbreviated version of the title if there is no author or more than one work by the same author? If you are paraphrasing, make sure to give the source, at least at the end of the paragraph. Example: (Pollan, “Unhappy”) __

7. Avoid comma splices.

The image appeals to pathos because it inspires fear, in addition, it appeals to logos by making people understand how important the issue is.

Corrected: The image appeals to pathos because it inspires fear; in addition, it appeals to logos by making people understand how important the issue is.

(could also be corrected with a conjunction like “and” or a period to start a new sentence)

Write in the following box a comma splice in your paper and how you corrected it. Go back and correct other comma splices in your paper, if applicable. Write “none” if you have no comma splices, and see if you can find another error or sentence to reword.

8. Have you quoted all exact phrases from the text?

Ex.: Efficiency is not nearly as valuable as the feeling you get when you look out the window at the red wheelbarrow, glazed with rainwater.

Corrected: Efficiency is not nearly as valuable as the feeling you get when you look out the window at the red wheelbarrow, “glazed with rain/water” (Williams 2).

Go back and correct any phrases in your paper that should be quoted.
