The Modern Language Association's guidelines for formatting papers, essays, and reports help standardize student writing. Similarly, the MLA's suggestions for how to cite research promote academic honesty and help underline the ethical obligations of a researcher to his or her audience. However, formatting a paper and a Works Cited page can be frustrating and difficult for students. This task is detail oriented and can be finicky. For this reason, I ask students to turn in rough drafts, including rough draft references. To help them meet these goals, I give students this checklist for formatting their rough draft and citations.
Empower students to take control of formatting their own essays. Give students the tools to manage the demands of an MLA 8 Works Cited page! This effortless, ready-to-print checklist helps students take control of their own academic responsibilities.
Updated to include a fillable .pdf and a Google Slides!
