Product Description
This is a four page "how to quote" reference packet that I made for my honors 7th graders. My goal when making it was to make a foolproof packet early in the year that can be their reference sheet for all essays (even across content such as in Social Studies classes). I purposely made it very clear and as "simple" seeming as can be so that the students wouldn't be overwhelmed.

It includes: how to punctuate quotes, in-text citations when using one source, in-text citations when using two sources, how to introduce two sources in an introduction paragraph, how to analyze a quote, a very useful paragraph writing strategy, and how to write titles of works (when to underline/italicize/quotation mark a title).

I made this as a reference sheet with MLA rules, but with very clear instructions for 7th graders. It is common core aligned, and there are many examples of working quotes into student writing. I made it to supplement the Expeditionary Learning curriculum, but I haven't locked the word document. Therefore, if you want to switch my few example sentences to feature an article or novel you're currently teaching, that's fine with me.

As said, I made this for a 7th grade honors class, but it is rigorous enough for 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade too. I suggest that you use this over a few lessons as your students prepare to write an essay.

Please provide feedback because I'm always grateful for suggestions to make resources even better.
