Two former students were guest speakers in English class today via Skype video chat. The grads spoke about the importance of learning MLA citations before getting to college. They stated that while the college they attend had a research class their freshman year, MLA format was briefly covered, but students were expected to know and use the format properly. One of the grads added that he had a psychology class that required APA format. Both grads said that if a student did not do citations or did not do them correctly, then that student would go before an academic review board and face a possible academic probation or expulsion. The chat session was well received by the junior English class.
