With the release of the MLA 8th Edition Handbook, the Modern Language Association changed the rules for proper citations. Are you teaching the correct, most up-to-date version of in-text citations and works cited page formatting? With this 47-slide MLA overview lecture and package of helpful student handouts, your students will know exactly how to approach their citations for your class, standardized testing, and future college courses.
Begin with the Prezi-based lecture, which features modern eye-catching design and concrete examples. Have students complete the guided notesheet as you work through the materials together. An answer key for reference and easy grading is included. All student handouts are included as both PDF and Google Drive versions.
After the lecture (which features brief examples from books by Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, and Stephen King), give students copies of the MLA Citation Maker, a fill-in-the-blank template that will assist them in keeping track of their own research materials.
Finally, share concrete examples of both the MLA front page submission format and a completed works cited page, both of which include helpful tips to serve as excellent models when students start building their own pages.
This download includes 47 Prezi slides and five pages of PDF & Google Drive content.
