We understand that it can be difficult (and sometimes confusing!) for students to piece together their MLA citations. That’s why we created an MLA format citation template for you to share, distribute, and/or post for your students.
This infographic helps your students properly cite books, websites, online videos, online journal articles, and digital images in MLA format. While there are other variations for these citations, this template reflects the most common way to cite these source types.
Whether you decide to use this in conjunction with a research project, place it on display in your classroom as a visual reference, or print it out so students can store it in their binders or notebooks is up to you. The possibilities are endless. We want your students to be responsible researchers, who acknowledge the work of original authors, which in turn prevents plagiarism. Hopefully, this template makes it easier for your students to achieve this goal.
Citing in other styles? No problem! We also have citation tools and guides for APA format and Chicago style.
