This idea originated in a meme if you can believe it. The meme has a picture of the Incredible Hulk, but there are nerdy glasses superimposed over his face. It says, "The Credible Hulk always cites his sources." I laughed when I saw that. A lot. And this idea was born!
This resource contains 17 pages of instructions and examples of common MLA citations, all adapted from the OWL: Purdue Online Writing Lab. They are also formatted according to MLA's 8th edition. It comes with printing and posting instructions to create your own Credible Hulk wall, which is an excellent resource for students to check and create Works Cited citations throughout the school year. My students come in and access it even after they've left my class!
This resource is completely FREE because I am committed to teaching middle and high school students how to conduct ethical research, which includes giving proper credit to all sources. Enjoy!
