Instructional Ideas

  • Integrate these assignments into your first essay of the year, or if students have been struggling with formatting their work correctly
  • On the day they hand in their work, have partners exchange and grade one another's papers using the sample provided or a key you create
Classroom Considerations

  • The resource mentions paragraphs to paste into the first pages that learners can access on the teacher's course website; these are not provided, but could easily be mocked up
Pros

  • Comes with a reference page that learners can use throughout the year, an image of the first page of a properly formatted MLA paper, and the activity details
Cons

  • The image of a properly formatted first page is very fuzzy; while pupils can get all of the information from this page that they need, you'll likely want to create a new page or find one on the Internet to print out instead
