Description

Students can ALWAYS use more practice when it comes to citing and embedding direct quotes in our research papers. Enter this practice bundle. With these three activities: 8 stations (including task cards, a scramble, a sort, and online self-assessment/practice quizzes) your students will be well on their way to understanding how to embed direct quotes, how to punctuate direct quotes, and how to use quotations formally.

This practice bundle is intended to follow your direct instruction to introduce the concepts of research writing and MLA style. Each PDF secured document is an excellent review for students who are already familiar with MLA or practice for students who have just been introduced to it.

The MLA aspects of this assignment focus on internal citation content and punctuation, so it will work well with both MLA 7 and 8.

The 8 station activities include paragraph writing with three different approaches for embedding quotations, punctuation practice, video reinforcement, a fun scramble using direct quotation elements, appealing multiple-choice task cards, and a punctuation sort (students are asked to identify correct and incorrect punctuation examples and to edit errors).

These station activities can also be used as class activities, informal assessments, or homework assignments. Please note that several of the stations require Internet access, so tablets, computers, or laptops would be necessary.

Sometimes, practice really does make perfect. If your students could benefit from some additional MLA quotation practice, this bundle just might be the ticket!
