PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are your students resisting citations in their research? Don’t understand what citations are, or why they are important? It’s less ugly when you explain it as making your writing more “designer” by putting logos on it! Win them over with this crash course lesson!

If you know my ”Essays are like Meals” Five Paragraph Essay Bundle or my Revision is like a Makeover lesson, you know that I like to take complex topics and make them simpler. In this gradual-release lesson, break down what citations are, why they are important, common mistakes to avoid, and why precision with formatting matters. Though this lesson is mostly on paper, there are also embedded links in the document so that you can project visuals on a screen, as well as multiple opportunities for students to stop and talk to you (or each other).

This lesson is particularly relevant for middle school OR any high school class that needs foundations, remedial help, or differentiation. (Or, quite frankly, any class that isn’t on board with citations yet!)

After this lesson of the basics – the “what”, “why”, and some of the “how” of citing - your students are prepared to move on to tougher topics within the world of citing and/or begin a research assignment of your choosing. (Click here for more research assignments & materials!)

(Check out the PREVIEW to get a closer look at lesson content!)

This 6-page download includes:
• Lesson Handout: starts with the metaphor and teaches basic info before progressing to practice
• Quiz & Answer Key: make sure students got it before moving on!
