For this class, you should use MLA style citations.
An in-text citation is the author’s name and page number in parentheses at the end of the sentence.
If you are only referencing one author in the entire paper, use their name in the first citation and only the page number for all following citations.
Quotation marks belong at the end of the quote. Punctuation marks belong after the citation, unless it is a question mark. Questions marks belong at the end of the sentence before the citation.

Meanwhile, Paul struggles to bring in the fish, drawing it in “two or three more times… only to have him swirl and return to the deep” (99).
