    Resources included in this MLA Citations Bundle:

    1. Introduction to MLA Format: MLA 9 Citations Worksheets with Examples

    Empower students to avoid using citation generators using these MLA citation worksheets and quizzes!  This resource includes 20 days of practice activities for MLA 9.  With these worksheets, students will identify errors, learn basic rules, differentiate between parts of a citation, and address punctuation according to MLA format. 

    You can begin this resource with “Day One” of the MLA Daily Practice Worksheets.  This worksheet explores why MLA format is important using inquiry-based learning and true and false questions.  You can then distribute the “Cheat Sheet” Quick Reference Graphic Organizer for MLA 9.  Students can use this personal anchor chart while they complete the remaining worksheets and activities.

    There are 10 days of Daily Practice Worksheets; in addition to this, there are also 10 days of MLA Format Bell Ringer Questions.  These bell ringer questions will evaluate students’ understanding of the concepts taught through the Daily Practice Worksheets.

    2, Writing in MLA Format: MLA 9 Question Prompts and Task Cards

    These MLA format activities will prompt students to practice writing MLA citations for a variety of common sources. Choose from MLA citation task cards, a source and citation gallery walk, or a digital MLA workbook using the materials provided with this resource.

    Students can use their “Cheat Sheet” Quick-Reference Card to review the guidelines for MLA 9.  It will also provide them with a personal anchor chart while they practice writing citations with these worksheets.

    This resource includes 15 citation question prompts using images of various sources. Sources explored include web pages, novels, journal articles, paintings, news articles, and social media posts. You can assign these worksheets as an MLA format workbook, or provide them as individual handouts for daily practice.

    Also included are 15 MLA Citation Task Cards that feature the same sources formatted to be distributed individually. I like to laminate these task cards and use them for a variety of purposes, including group work, a source and citation gallery walk, or student choice activities.

    To accompany these task cards, this resource also provides scaffolding worksheets.  Students can use the graphic organizers within these worksheets for writing MLA citations. 

    3. In-Text Citations - Worksheets and Activities for Parenthetical and Integrated Citations

    This resource includes eight scaffolding worksheets for MLA citations, each with a paragraph featuring either a parenthetical or integrated citation. Students must identify the in-text citation, and then organize the points provided to write a comprehensible paragraph.

    Topics explored in this resource include:

    • Wisdom Teeth Extraction
    • Strength Training for Teens
    • Urban Legends
    • Wet'suwet'en Solidarity Protests
    • Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" Speech
    • Advantages of Immigration
    • and more!

    Completed paragraphs and highlighted in-text citations can be found in the answer key for this resource. 

    Also included in this resource is a set of multiple-choice questions that highlight important information regarding formatting in-text citations according to MLA 9. An answer key has also been provided for this resource, which includes explanations for each correct answer.

    To support students with scaffolding in-text citations, anchor chart posters have also been included.  These reference posters include a “skeleton of a citation” to show the simplified formula of an MLA citation, along with in-text citation examples of parenthetical and integrated citations.  Hang these beautiful posters on your classroom bulletin board or provide them to each student for an individual reference sheet.
