Don’t you love bibliographies? After many draining hours of extracting a standard five-paragraph report from your writing-resistant son, what could be more fun than telling him it’s time to write the bibliography? He’ll so enjoy piecing together the scraps of 3 x 5 source note cards he ripped up, so the both of you can remember where you found the scant facts he was remotely interested in. A bibliography’s detailed formatting requirements will fascinate him to no end; and let’s not forget the exciting treasure hunt for unlisted author names on obscure websites.
In the unlikely event that your son would prefer the beach to the bibliography, check out the new listing at the Online Resources page. EasyBib.com provides formatting from the MLA handbook for free. Fifty-nine source options, including books, journals, magazine and newspaper articles, online databases, websites, and more are provided, giving users the ability to include virtually any source, with no formatting headaches!
Easy Bib is one of the saving graces of our homeschool. We simply fill in a form and click “Create Citation.” Copy and paste, and we’re done.
See you at the beach!
