Knowing how to cite textual evidence is a key component in reading and writing in education today. This resource equips teachers with the strategies they need to teach students how to cite and annotate textual evidence when reading and writing. Secondary school students will learn how to find evidence to support their opinions, incorporate that evidence in their writing, and accurately cite their sources. The ten lessons include proper MLA formatting, paraphrasing, using block quotation, creating a bibliography, the use of credible sources, avoiding plagiarism, and more. Students will apply what they've learned through twenty practice exercises. Citing textual evidence powerfully strengthens students' writing, develops analytical thinking and logic, and readies students for college and career with lessons that are aligned to McREL, TESOL, and WIDA standards.
