Description

Do your students struggle to seamlessly incorporate text evidence within their writing? This completely digital and printable unit will teach your students MLA 8 citations, with critical lessons that will teach your students how to incorporate and embed these citations within their paragraphs. This is also digital resource. It can be used for distance or e-learning. Each unit will contain a Google File Link Page that will provide you with a Google Doc/Slides for each activity. A video tutorial I created will provide you with some tech tools to assist you with delivering the content via distance learning.

This complete MLA Format Citation Bundle includes:

✏a Google Slides/PowerPoint presentation to teach the MLA 8th Edition rules for in-text citation (parenthetical citation)

✏an MLA trouble-shooting guide for students

✏a digital and printable interactive notebook

✏quality examples from real literature

✏bell ringer practice

✏3 unique summative assessments.

The MLA 8th edition lesson on incorporating and citing textual evidence will help your students learn:

❧How to create an in-text citation for citing text evidence with and without an author's name.

❧How to lead into or out of a quote with the student's own words.

❧How to pepper a quote - taking a small section of the author's words to embed seamlessly into the student's own writing.

❧How to delete parts of the quote to seamlessly incorporate the evidence into the student's paragraph.

❧How to incorporate the title and/or author in signal phrases prior to a quotation.

❧Block style quotations.

❧How to cite dialogue

❧How to cite poetry

❧Examples from quality literature for each type of citation.

❧5 Days of Bell Ringer Practice Activities to practice incorporating text evidence with a proper citation!

Practice:

❧Three practice documents (Google Doc, PDF, and Word document) using examples from literature. (This could be used as a quiz).

3 Summative Assessment Options:

❧ Students will conduct a short, guided research project to show how they can truly embed quotations within their own writing. Graphic organizers and rubric provided!

❧ 2 Creative Choice Menu Boards. The first board will provide students with 12 options to show what they know about the proper formatting of an in-text citation. The second choice board will provide students with 12 options to show what they know about truly embedding quotations within their writing using the specific strategies taught in the lesson.

❧Students are given three passages, one fiction, and two non-fiction texts- with relating themes (social justice). They are asked to close read, then respond to the given prompt using evidence from two of the three sources. They are supported in doing so with detailed graphic organizers and then asked to seamlessly incorporate text evidence for the assessment.
