Lesson 7: Works Cited Heading

In this lesson you will write the heading for your Works Cited page and learn how to force a new page.


Create your Works Cited heading.

  • Put your cursor after your title.
  • Tap the Enter key about 10 times to put your cursor about half way down the page.
  • Write the words Works Cited
  • Center, bold, and underline Works Cited.



Force your Works Cited to start on a new page.

  • Place your cursor in front of the “W” of Works Cited.
  • Hold down the Ctrl key while you tap Enter once.
  • This is the proper way to "force" a new page. Now your Works Cited page will always start on a fresh page, regardless of the changes you make to the body of your document.

Did you force your Works Cited page to start on a fresh page by pressing Enter multiple times?

  • That's the wrong way to do it. Follow the instructions above.

Check to make sure that your Works Cited page also includes a header. (The header should have appeared automatically, with the page number "2").


Did you create a separate file for your Works Cited page?

  • Do not keep your Works Cited page in a separate file. Your entire document should be in one file.

Check your work.

Your paper should now look very much like this:
