Here is a great way for students to learn and practice how to properly cite their sources in the MLA style. How to cite from books, websites, and magazines are clearly and simply explained. How to cite from encyclopedias is also explained (though the process is very similar to citing from a book). Students are started off with guided practice and eased into independent practice. A paired assessment is also included to test student knowledge on how to cite properly.
Citing Sources: A Quick and Graphic Guide from Kate Hart (did I cite this ok?) This is great - such a fun tool for middle school learners. Excellent tool to get them on the right path on understanding how to cite source and avoid plagiarism
