You know you need to show your students the right way to handle sourced material to prevent plagiarism, but the subject matter can be so dry, causing teens to tune out during your lecture. To fix this, use a lecture disguised as a game to help cover the basics of proper MLA source citation and plagiarism rules.

This product includes a projectable “game” of PDF slides (shh...it’s really a lecture – don’t tell our students) with concrete, real-world examples of how source citations should be handled. The answers for each of the game’s questions are embedded in the slide presentation, providing learning opportunities alongside the fun.

Also included is a detailed, step-by-step suggested lesson procedure (yes, you could even leave this as an emergency sub plan) and a one-page game “score sheet,” which is really a worksheet where students take notes and record their answers.

Everything you need to help reinforce plagiarism rules is included in this PDF packet.

Still haven’t taught the basics of how to cite source material? Be sure to start your citation/plagiarism lessons with these dynamic materials designed to give a teen-friendly explanation of the MLA 8th Edition Style Handbook rules.
