You do not need to include a formal works cited page for Reading Preparations. For quotes and paraphrasing, use in-text citations to provide the appropriate page number.

You will receive 20 points credit for each thorough preparation that follows all of the above guidelines. Please review the assigned rubric to see how RPs will be graded.
