TFiOS Theme Paragraph (edit for formatting)

Welcome to draft #4 of your The Fault in Our Stars theme paragraph. Today we will edit with an eye to formatting.

1) using Word or Google Docs, type your TFiOS theme paragraph
2) follow proper MLA formatting guidelines, including:
  • 12 point size
  • Times New Roman font
  • one inch top, bottom, left, and right margins
  • indent (tab) 1/2 inch for first line of paragraph
  • book titles (The Fault in Our Stars) are italicized
  • article/essay titles ("The Myth of Sisyphus") are placed in quotation marks
  • double space lines, with no additional spacing between paragraphs
  • one space after periods or other punctuation marks
  • in the upper left-hand corner of the first page, list your name, your instructor's name, the course, and the date (double spaced)
  • your essay title is centered, two lines below the heading, without any bold/quotation marks
  • in the upper right-hand corner, create a header that includes your last name, followed by a space with a page number; number all pages consecutively with Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.), one-half inch from the top and flush with the right margin (Times New Roman)
3) upload your file (DO NOT CUT AND PASTE AS THIS WILL NEGATE ALL YOUR FORMATTING) on by 1:59pm Tuesday, September 23.
