Giving Credit - A Lesson in Plagiarism and MLA Citations

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Christina Snyder (Teacher (K-12)), Nov 10, 2011

This stand alone assignment is an awesome resource.  It is informative and involves students without being boring, which is saying a lot, considering the lesson is about citing sources!  I especially liked the clean layout, no clutter to distract.  This would be a great resource to use to introduce students to the importance of citing sources, and how to use MLA citation.  The only issue I noticed with this StAIR is that the in text citations are shown as having commas with them, for example "Here is my quote" (Smith, 113).  When currently, MLA guidelines would have one write this out without the comma, as (Smith 113).  This is the only thing I would change in the presentation.  Other than that small detail, it is awesome!  Thanks, Mary, for making a resource available on a topic that usually isn't much fun to teach!
