Hey you're copying me! Have you ever heard the righteous cry of indignation in your classroom when a student thinks their hard work is being copied by someone else? If so, that's a good thing because you can use it when teaching kids why and how to cite their sources when writing a report. From Learning Engineer Blog
Here is a great way for students to learn and practice how to properly cite their sources in the MLA style. How to cite from books, websites, and magazines are clearly and simply explained. How to cite from encyclopedias is also explained (though the process is very similar to citing from a book). Students are started off with guided practice and eased into independent practice. A paired assessment is also included to test student knowledge on how to cite properly.
