Citing your sources means that you are telling your instructor where you got the information from. You want to give credit to the source since you got the information from it and so you do not plagiarize.
MLA is the Modern Language Association Style. It is the preferred method for many disciplines including English. Other styles include APA and Chicago.
All a style means is how they want you to put the information about the source you used.
It tells you how and when to put the author, title, date, name of journal, magazine, or newspaper, etc...
Each style does it differently. Some are capitalized, italicized, use quotation marks, and more.
For this assignment, you will be using MLA Style.
