Your essay should include several MLA-formatted, parenthetically-cited quotations from Educated.

A secondary source might be an article or any related resource mentioned in class or located on our class’ web page. You might include a statistic from the Library database Statista or define a term from one of the specialized encyclopedias in Gale eBooks. Be sure to cite any secondary source(s) in MLA format.
Please use a standard font (i.e., Times New Roman in size 12) and one-inch margins.
