Citing Sources

Middle school students are required to use the MLA format when citing sources. I partner with the teachers in instructing
students how to locate and enter the correct information as early as fourth grade, and I start with students as young as Kindergarten discussing the different pages (cover, title page, dedication page, etc.) so they are familiar with identifying important 
publication information. While "short cut" sites exist to help students with MLA bibliographies, I believe it is important to know
the correct procedure first (just like when we learn to do mathematical operations before we rely on calculators).
