  • While all of these steps are important, today’s lesson is going to focus on one in particular to get you started. I think it’s important to understand this particular step before we start on anything else.

    • What the heck is “MLA?”
      • Literally, MLA=Modern Language Association
      • A writing format & citation style & the one you will use @ stang
      • It dictates how you should format: research papers ~ in-text citations ~ works cited pages

  • Works cited
    • What is a “works cited” document?
    • Author, title, publication information, etc.
    • Question: do you know how to cite?
    • Let’s find out!!
    07/21/11 Created by Mrs. Thomas, your Friendly Librarian!
  • Activity #1: cyber-cite
    • With your partner follow these directions together but on individual computers:
    • Go to bishopstang.com
    • Under “students” click on “library” then “students projects” then “Mrs. Seseske” then “To Kill a Mockingbird.”
    • Go to the “MLA Citation” tab on your project libguide.
    • In the box that is titled “MLA citation help” complete steps 1-3; read the description below the link BEFORE clicking on the link.
    • I suggest both in each partner group follows these directions so you can both take individual notes.

  • Activity #2: citation puzzle
    • Together with your partner, find one other partner group to make a group of four.
    • Please send one member of the group to Mrs. Thomas.
    • With your envelope of “puzzle” pieces (citation elements) and your “key” (what you are citing) find a table with your group and get started! You may use your notes and group discussion is encouraged!
    • When your group is finished, one member may raise a hand and Mrs. Thomas will check your work.
    • When your work is perfect, switch puzzle pieces with another group and do it again!
