1 In-text Citation

2 MLA in-text citations have a clear and precise format. One online film critic stated that Fitzcarraldo is "a beautiful and terrifying critique of obsession and colonialism" (Garcia, “Herzog: a Life”).

3 For Online Articles with or without a specific name: Human beings have been described by an Ivy League School University Professor as “symbol-using animals” (Endington, “Traffic Fatalities: Our Nation’s Biggest Killer”). Human beings have been described by Kenneth Burke, a Psychology Professor at Yale University, as “symbol-using animals” (Endington, “Traffic Fatalities: Our Nation’s Biggest Killer”).

4 Author’s name is mentioned after the text: Studies performed at Yale University show that human beings have the capacity to identify thousands of symbols before the age of ten (Endington, “Traffic Fatalities: Our Nation’s Biggest Killer”). Author’s name is mentioned in the text: Alfred Endington, a literary professor at Yale University, says that human beings have the capacity to identify thousands of symbols before the age of ten (“Traffic Fatalities: Our Nation’s Biggest Killer”).

5 What would the in-text citation look like? Cindy Terebush, director of schools for Temple Shalom in Aberdeen, says, “ Parents are absorbing their children's school responsibilities as if their own.

7 How do I include a quote at the beginning, in the middle, and at the end of a sentence? “Micromanagement does not benefit a child,” says Cindy Terebush, director of schools for Temple Shalom in Aberdeen, nor is it healthy for the parent (Oglesby, “ Parenting in the Age of Competition” ).

Parents have become too involved in their children’s academics. Cindy Terebush, director of schools for Temple Shalom in Aberdeen, says that too many guardians are in fact “absorbing their children’s school responsibilities as if their own” (Ogelsby, “Parenting in the Age of Competition” ).

9 What if I want to include a long quote? (4 lines or more) Although many parents think that more involvement in school academics produces more successful children, Cindy Terebush, director of schools for Temple Shalom in Aberdeen, said: “ Parents are absorbing their children's school responsibilities as if their own.
