Chapter 13: Works Cited

For the Instructor

Before class, prepare a set of citations in MLA and APA that have mistakes in them; also bring in the basic information for four or five articles that will need to be cited. Try to get a variety of sources (a webpage, a journal article etc)

In class have the students get into small groups and “correct” the mistaken citations. You could even make a small game of this, making the groups teams that are competing against each other.

After this, in the same groups, give them the basic information for the four or five articles and have them cite them correctly in MLA and then APA. Again, this could be done as a competition.
