Ok now that was impressive. You took what was initially perceived as intentional wrong doing by a student and turned it into a very positive experience for them and for you.

But how does that address the text lifted from essay farms?

Were you using MLA format? Because technically, if you mention your mom in the sentence, you only need the page number at the end. /nitpick.

Oh, I know! I knew I was teaching them the wrong way. 8-( But at that point I felt like that particular detail was not going to get across and was going to confuse them even more. I hope we did get down the basic idea of needing to cite, using the full name of the person the first time and then afterwards just a last name, and the punctuation issue. They are only just grasping that you say "Broyles 467" and then that clues you in to look at the works cited page and then you see the full citation.

So I taught them slightly wrong on purpose... If I were better prepared I probably could have explained it clearly.

I just spent another half class period talking about this and running them through two more examples. There is still mass confusion. I wish I'd realized this was a key issue from the beginning of the class!

[crowd, in unison] Yes. We must all talk in our own voice about our own opinions.
