I’m studying for my English class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?
Read the assigned essay (https://mashable.com/2011/02/23/social-media-culture/) and respond to the following questions:
- n the opening sentences, give the author’s full name and “Essay Title” in a complete sentence.
- Give your reactions, opinions, and thoughts about the material.
- You need not mention the author again unless you quote or summarize the material.
- If you give the author’s name again, use last name only.
- If you use the author’s words (quote) or ideas (summary), cite both in text and bibliographically.
**Write your answer in a short paragraph (250+ words).
Additional info to take in mind while writing the response:
Be sure, also, to avoid plagiarism. While you can summarize an idea from the author or borrow a quote, you must also make sure that you parenthetically and bibliographically cite the essay using MLA format.
The basic bibliographic formula for our responses’ essays will look like this:
Author Last, First Name. “Article Title.” Periodical Title, Date Month Year, url.
We will cover more bibliographic citation methodology in the coming Modules.
Any idea, thought, word, or phrase from the original source must be cited.
