Before Citation Machine, Son of Citation Machine, EasyBib, and other sites that do the thinking for our students, amateur researchers learned to create their own bibliographical entries and keep them organized on small index cards. The Internet has brought ease to the process, but it has not made our students any more organized.
Go old school and help your kinesthetic learners make connections by teaching them the process of creating a Works Cited entry using source cards. This four-item practice exercise will help them learn how.
Give students access to MLA format requirements and let them wrestle with the information they do and don’t need as they create practice source cards.
BONUS MATERIAL: I have included a slide show that you might use for direct instruction, modeling, guided practice, paired practice, or independent practice before having students complete the exercises in the five-slide product.
