Citation Machine

I am told that one of the skills that students who go to college are lacking is the ability to cite sources.  With this in mind, I designed an activity to help my English students practise using citations.  Inspired by this Glog, I instructed my students to create their own Glog that presented an animal of their choice.  They were to find pictures, information and a map from at least five different sources.  Then, using, the website, “Son of Citation Machine,” they were to cite their sources of information.

Here is the Glog created by one of my students.  Although she lost marks for not creating proper MLA citations, overall, the poster is nicely done.  Most of the students had a lot of fun using Glogster.
