Be sure to cite properly, as per the MLA Format every time that any information is directly. Be sure to cite properly, as per the MLA Format every time that any information is directly copied (and quotation marks are needed), paraphrased (writing someone else’s ideas in your own words) or for any facts that are not common knowledge (like “the sky is blue”). Be sure to provide a works cited section with a bibliographic citation of each source used; be sure to include the Date Accessed is the date that YOU previewed a particular website or watched a Youtube video because website/video content can change.
