    Search up Purdue OWL MLA if you need to see lots of info on MLA. Once you know what MLA is, think about how it is different from say writing just anything else. Some guy writes in the news paper that crime is on the rise. A scientist writes for a journal that crime is on the fall. What differentiates the two? And I don't mean the paper vs. the journal. I mean, what about the format of the papers would be different. Here are a few things about newspaper writing to help make the contrast clearer. You write the key things first. The headline needs to grab attention at all costs. Details and data go last so they can be cut out if you don't have that much column space. Written to fit if it is a few inches wide or on a web page. Facts are whatever the reporter can reasonably get by saying is true and generally don't list where they come from. Now you contrast that to what an MLA paper is and you will see some huge differences!
