        • It dictates how you should format: research papers ~ in-text citations ~ works cited pages

      • Question: do you know how to cite?

      07/21/11 Created by Mrs. Thomas, your Friendly Librarian!
    • 13. 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.

    • 14. 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!
