This 'fill in the blank' source documentation sheets are great for students to practice gathering bibliographic data for their research project reference list. The first two pages include fill-in-the-blank examples for print sources [book, magazine, reference book], online/Web sources [online encyclopedia, photograph, database, and Web site], and personal interview. The third page shows an example of citations within the document text and a sample of a finished bibliography page.
This can also be used as a worksheet following a Citing Sources lesson to give students practice looking up and documenting the different kinds of sources they may use for a research project. The style used is MLA, 8th Edition.
This worksheet was created for middle school students learning how to cite a source properly. High school students often use an online citation building Web site, and many online encyclopedia and databases have created the citation for students to copy and paste to their reference lists. But for those sources that don't have the citation already written, these fill-in-the blank worksheets are good to refer to in creating a proper bibliography.
