Case | Pembrooke Community College
Natalie Lanci is a student at Pembrooke Community College. As an
assignment for her interior design class, she has drafted a one-page
handout called “Getting the Look You Want,” that a designer might
give to customers. The handout still needs some revision; Natalie
wants to reorganize some of the text. She also wants the ﬁ nished
document to look elegant and professional, while being easy to read.
She has several ideas on how to format it to achieve these effects.
For her ﬁ lm history class, Natalie is writing a research paper on the
history of disaster ﬁ lms. She needs to follow a set of very speciﬁ c
formatting and style guidelines for academic documents.
Natalie has asked you to help her edit these two very different
documents. In Session 2.1 you will revise and format the interior design
handout. In Session 2.2, you will review the MLA style for research
papers, and then format Natalie’s research paper on disaster ﬁ lms to
match the MLA speciﬁ cations.
