I'd like your thoughts on this. I see so many assignments that ask
students to research information on "x", and write a one page report or
do a poster, etc. and be sure to put it in your own words and include a
Works Cited page. According to MLA format, shouldn't students also be
required to include parenthetical documentation. They  are not creating
anything new. They are simply repeating someone else's work, albeit in
their own words. We are a 6-8 school. Our 6th grade comes to us with
little , if any, practice doing research and creating Works Cited
pages, so we are starting at the beginning with them. Is it too much to
expect them to be able to parenthetically document their reports? I
appreciate any input you can share.
