And then the page number shows up here and you can check, there's the two, and there's the three.
So when you do it like this, all the page numbers get put in the correct place.
Okay, so now the other thing I need to do is the page numbers, and you can do the page numbers a couple of different ways. Click insert and then go down to where it says page numbers.
This little box opens up, and the page numbers in MLA format should be on the right, but at the top of the page, so you want to make sure it says top of the page, right. And then to make the page number show up on the first page, we'll click this right here, and say OK.
It’s important to remember that your rough draft is a long way from your final draft, and you will engage in revision and editing before you have a draft that is ready to submit.
Sometimes, keeping this in mind can help you as you draft.This essay is already set with double space, so that's good.And then over here, we want to make sure both of these numbers are zero. So I'm going to select everything again, and then I'm going to come up here and I'm going to choose the align text left.So I am going to come back up here, I'll double click again, and then I'm going to highlight this, I can highlight the name.And I can see up here it's Calibri, that's not the correct font. Now it says Times New Roman and I want to change it to 12 point. If I just double click on the page number, then it gets highlighted And you see it's also Calibri 11 point.To get my name over here, I need to click on the right align. I can see that this is a different font from the body. This should be the same font as the font of the body of the essay.So I click on that, and now my cursor is blinking here. So I'm going to close this for just a minute, and come back and look and see what font was I using.That's perfect, that's exactly how I wanted it formatted. When you format yours correctly it will look very much like this.In this section of the Excelsior OWL, you have been learning about traditional structures for expository essays (essays that are thesis-based and offer a point-by-point body), but no matter what type of essay you’re writing, the rough draft is going to be an important part of your writing process.The first thing I notice here that needs to be fixed is the title.This title is underlined and MLA format does not underline titles.
