This bundle teaches students how to identify and write in-text citations, as well as the importance of giving credit to a source.

These inquiry-based lessons help young researchers develop a shared understanding of the many forms of in-text citations. Whether they are paraphrasing or providing direct quotations, students will learn where and how to cite the source of information. Using engaging activities, students will be able to identify the characteristics of a MLA8 in-text citation, practice identifying them, and learn strategies for writing their own. 

This bundle is also perfect to use with students who are ready for a bit more sophisticated research writing. It provides them with fun and playful activities that teach them how to write citations that not only flow well, but follow MLA 8 guidelines.

This bundle has 3 lessons, and includes:

  • Identifying In-Text Citations to teach proper in-text citation format and how to cite sources when quoting and paraphrasing to ethically share information.
