Works Cited help:
Use wwwknightcite.com. On the far left choose MLA and the correct type of source (webpage, newspaper, book, etc). Then fill in as much as you can. Leave anything you cannot find blank. If you're not using page ranges because you're citing your entire novel, for example, leave tho boxes blank. It will auto-generate the citation for you. Watch capitalization and spelling carefully because it will not auto-correct capitalization or spelling errors.
