I think its something like this: First, you need to find a newspaper article written within the past 6 months. Then you need to describe and summarize: -How the newspaper story relates to a person from the 1970's to now or -How the newspaper story relates to a place from the 1970's to now or -How the newspaper story relates to an experience from the 1970's to now You have to make sure you write about how that person/place/experience (from 1970'2 to now) relates to your newspaper article. I hope this helps clear things up a bit, and good luck in your essay!

umm, usually quotes go in the essay, in the paragraph with the topic that you are talking about. and essay's dont have figures or images on them.

Okay. First, pick an acticle dating from between the 1970's-today. Then just give a summary of it... a summmary is a few sentences that describes the main idea. remember that word choice is important, get rid of words you don't need. After you summarize, tie the information in the article bakc to today. Basically that means if you have an article from the '80's about global warming [idk, i just made that up] you could say that we're still dealing with it today. Then maybe explain why it was important then and why it is important now.Try to connect and use specific details. I hope this helps!!

Abia Originally Answered: MLA essay format: Does the works cited page count as part of the essay length?
Your numbers aren't adding up. You should send him an email even if he doesn't respond. If you send it and he doesn't respond, you can blame him, unless he clearly defined the assignment in other ways. If you just forgot what he said, then you should contact some classmates to clarify their understanding. Normally, a 6 page MLA essay would be 6 pages plus any works cited. So 2 pages of works cited would make an 8 page paper for a 6 page essay. It makes no sense at all for an MLA paper to have 6 pages or 2 pages.

As a general rule the works cited page does not count towards the total number pages. It is in itself a stand alone. So, no it won't be counted as the seventh page.
