You can use the following list to check that your essay meets the minimum requirements for your course. I will deduct a minimum of 1/3 of a letter grade from essays that do not meet applicable standards set out here; in serious cases I reserve the right to assign a greater penalty. Most of the points mentioned here are discussed in greater detail below. If you do not understand what a particular standard means, you should consult the MLA Handbook, Chicago Manual of Style, relevant sections of this web-site, or come and see me.
