Beas 1Luis BeasMrs. PopeEnglish 5-6 Honors Period 231 October 2016This is how you construct MLA format for anything word processedStart your essay/paper here. Make all margins 1 inch except where your last name goes on the upper right-hand corner; that should be a half an inch from the top. Do not make a header;trust me, do it manually. Everything should be double-spaced in a normal font (Times New Roman is usually preferred) and a normal size (12 point). Your title should be centered and plain;do not underline, italicize, make it bold, make it larger, etc…. (Follow the example above using your own info). I suggest making a template for this class using this handout. In addition, when using Microsoft Word, the default spacing is “normal” (see “Styles” on top of home tab on the right). In order to eliminate additional, unwanted spaces, which are NOT MLA format, you must begin with “no spacing”, then go to “paragraph”, then to “line spacing”, then chose double-spaced option from there. This can be done before or after you begin typing.
