Students will review MLA 8th edition in-text citations and Works Cited entries with these 24 MLA task cards that ask them to find errors in entries and citations, determine information given by a citation, and correctly order Works Cited entries. Correct answer numeric codes give them letters toward the secret phrase, which they'll unscramble to win the game!
This product IS included in my escape room bundle:
Secondary English Escape Room Bundle
Your download includes
* 8 in-text citation task cards
* 16 Works Cited entry task cards
* one practice task card to model for students how to fill in answer code
* teacher & student instructions for Google and non-Google facilitation
* answer key for codes and secret phrases if teacher-led
* teacher tips page and link to instruction video
* four different Google forms with four different secret phrases
* a page of suggestions on how to facilitate the escape room should students not complete the activity in one class period
** PLEASE NOTE: While a date of access is not required, the MLA Handbook does recommend it. For this reason, the task cards contain a date of access.
In the Google-led facilitation (a quicker version), students input answers into a Google Form and are automatically told if their code is correct for each card and awarded a letter toward the secret phrase. There are four different Google forms that receive the same numeric codes but four different “secret phrases.”
In teacher-led facilitation (a lengthier version), teachers will check answers for students and award letters toward the secret phrase.
Students will review proper formatting, direct quotes vs. paraphrases, necessary elements for Works Cited entries and more.
This product works best if used as a review after students are familiar with rules or as you introduce rules to give students immediate practice. Facilitation of the game (from me giving instructions to the first group solving the secret phrase) takes anywhere from 45-60 minutes.
