    • The example paragraph for the introduction is below. There is already an MLA powerpoint from Unit 3 when we reviewed how to make a works cited page, as well as the link to the MLA Formatting website in the righthand toolbar.

      “John McLeod’s short story “The Shivering Tree” follows a shape-shifter named Nanabush in his quest to seek revenge on a stranger who steals his eyes. In “The Shivering Tree”, McLeod uses the origin of natural phenomena to illustrate the way that karma can affect a person’s life. This is illustrated through Nanabush’s influences on the natural world, the Owl’s generosity towards Nanabush, and the Juggler’s eventual fate as a tree.”
