To do so in Microsoft Word, go to View and select Header from the list.
Type your information in the header box, highlight it, and hit the right justify selection.
The basic structure of the MLA essay is: introduction, body of the essay and conclusion.
The introduction is the first paragraph of the essay.
Captions and figure labels should appear directly below the image itself, and if your caption contains all the necessary information about the source, that source doesn't need to be listed in your works cited list unless it's cited elsewhere in the text. This is the list of sources you used in your research. It comes at the end of the paper and on a new page.
It should include the same header and pagination as the main text. Type Works Cited one inch from the top of your page. Add a space, and start typing the information for your first source starting one inch from the left. Alphabetize the works by the author, using the last name.
You should explain to the audience why you are going to write on that specific thesis, what makes it interesting for you and what is your overall opinion and attitude on it.
The length of the introductory paragraph will depend on your instructor’s notes.
In it you introduce to the audience the topic you are going to write about.
The tone and the thesis given in the introduction should set the context of the whole essay.
