A collection of MLA citation worksheets

Please read before downloading your Citation Worksheets!

*The worksheets in English have been updated to match the 7th edition guidelines of the MLA Handbook.  We will update the Spanish versions soon.

Each citation type fills a full or half page. For student use, you can print multiple copies and for some cut them in half to save paper.

Guidelines for your MLA citation worksheets.

  1. PREVIEW: Be sure to use the "Preview" option for your printer prior to printing. Printers have a variety of print margins set so formatting may need to be corrected at your site.
  2. PRINTING: You can print the Print and Electronic resources on two different colors to make it easier for students to understand which section of Citation Maker to use as they work on them online.

    Another suggestion, from Libby Hamler-Dupras, Myers Elementary in Salem, is to print each citation type on a different color making it easier for you to quickly grab the correct type being requested. Students can keep these "citation forms" in their folders until they are ready to enter them on the Citation Maker. Then they sort them by Print or Electronic for ease of entry.
  3. CITATION MAKER: After entering the resource into the Citation Maker, students could simply click on COPY ALL and then print the bibliographic information from the Citation Maker screen. This is an alternative to going through the process of copying and pasting the citations into a separate MS Word document. It also means that the Print and Electronic Resources will print on two separate sheets.
