Congratulations on finishing CSTs!

Due Monday - FOUR poems by your approved poet (see list of recommended poets for ideas) and MLA format citations for each.

MLA Format:

Poet Last Name, Poet First Name. "Title of Poem." Name of Website. Date copyrighted or updated. Web. Date you visited the website.

So, as a sample:
Frost, Robert. "The Road Not Taken." Academy of American Poets. 2011. Web. 21 May 2011.

Or, for a book entry:

Poet Last Name, Poet First Name. "Title of Poem." Title of Book. Editor name, ed. City of Publication: Publishing Company, Copyright Date, page number. Print.

Frost, Robert. "The Road Not Taken." The Second Book of Modern Verse. Jessie B. Rittenhouse, ed. Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1920, 240. Print.

NOTE: If your book does not have a separate editor listed, omit that and move on to the next part of the citation. If you are using the entire book, omit page numbers (but use page numbers if you are only referring to one or a few pages).

Email me at if you have questions, and remember to please email your poems and citations no later than Monday evening in order to gain admission to the computer lab on Tuesday (and avoid unpleasant phone calls/emails to your folks and advisors!).
