Wednesday, Nov. 14 Wed. section
Monday, Nov. 19 Monday section
Each of the items will be formatted as proper Works Cited bibliographic entry. Do not alphabetize all 10 against each other, except for the trio of answers in #3. Each item has all the raw, unformatted information you need for the entry, given in no particular order. However, all you need is there; no source hunting necessary. Find the appropriate section in MLA Handbook or, if there is not an exact match, the closest type of item to help you format an entry correctly.
