Classroom success stories from other teachers who have tried this resource:
♥ "I really liked the game aspect of this resource. The students had to physically place the different parts of the MLA format in order with their bodies. This offered the class the opportunity to discuss and problem solve. The slides were great with the information provided!"
♥ "Early in the year I found that my students had no idea what MLA was or how to do it. This resource helped a lot to educate them as well as increase their knowledge when it came to writing their extensive research paper."
♥ "I don't know that I can say enough about this lesson. My junior and senior classes understand mla citations now. Everything was presented clearly and effectively. They really enjoyed the citation game. They were spread all over the room figuring it out. They were excited when they created the right citation, so much so that the groups who finished were eager to help struggling groups. The review activities and quiz are a great way to wrap up the lesson. When polled, 95% of my kids say they now understand and feel comfortable using citations."
♥ "Great resource! It is nice to have all the information so well organized. We will be doing research soon, and I think this will be very helpful."
