Never get asked again whether source titles need to be italicized or enclosed in quotation marks!
This resource includes a single page handout that is both an overview of my method for teaching (and remembering) how to punctuate titles correctly AND a study guide/notes sheet to give your students as a reference tool.
Ideally, teach the method in a 15 - 25 minute mini-lesson and provide students a copy of the handout (or make a poster of it to hang in your classroom!)
Then, hold students accountable for punctuating titles correctly when writing and on assessments.
I have used this method successfully for 5+ years with writers ranging from seventh grade to college-level Composition. Each group has appreciated the visual reminder of the whole pie / piece of pie to help them master the skill. I hope your students will also benefit from the strategy. MLA punctuation is not only a learning point for research writing units, but is also assessed on the ACT, AP tests, and many State End of Course Assessments.
