TITLES Make them strong and specific.
Add the number and letter at the beginning of the title for Paper 2.
Word Count Quotations are included in the word count. Bibliographies are not. The statement of intent for 2b is included. The extract for 2c is not. You do not need to put the word count on your paper; however, you MUST bring it to put on your cover sheet.
Do not put a 4-line heading on your paper. Set your page margins at 1” Insert a header: IB # *** – (Fill in the last 3 numbers with your number. Make certain you know what that is today.)

Drama “If you quote dialogue between two or more characters in a play, set the quotation off from your text. Begin each part of the dialogue with the appropriate character’s name indented one inch from the left margin and written in al capital letters: HAMLET. Follow the names with a period, and start the quotation. Indent all subsequent lines in that character’s speech an additional quarter inch. When the dialogue shifts to another character, start a new line indented one inch from the left margin.” - MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers 96

When stage directions interrupt the grammatical sense of your sentence, they may be replaced with an ellipsis.” - MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers 97

Instead, initially use the word line or lines and then, having established that the numbers designate lines, give the numbers alone.” - MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers 227
