Updated with 8th edition MLA revisions, this PowerPoint includes a color-coded visual to teach your students how to cite their sources in MLA Format. This resource is completely editable and almost 20 slides long!
This 8th Edition MLA Format PowerPoint includes information about what MLA format is, why we write in MLA format, how to set up a paper in MLA format, and how to cite in MLA format (parenthetical citations and Works Cited Page).
There is a video embedded in the PowerPoint that shows students how to set up their Microsoft Word document in MLA format. While the video does not contain any audio, it is still very helpful. When I teach this in my own classroom, I narrate the video and pause between major steps so that students can take notes.
