RESEARCH (MLA) format...Bibliography Graphic Organizers for Works Cited

These graphic organizers will assist you as teachers in helping your students learn the importance of all the little details necessary for MLA format of bibliographical text.  Use both the blank and typed charts together as you are filling in the needed materials for the beginning researcher.  Ultimately, the upper level researcher should consider referring to the MLA Handbook, especially at the high school and college levels.  The use of red for needed punctuation and blue for the appropriate spacing will also aid the students as they transfer this information to their bibliography cards, then alphabetize the resources to be used in the report/ research paper/ speech, and the Works Cited/ Bibliography page with hanging (reverse) indention.
