At the beginning of each semester [we are an accelerated program so we do a year's worth of English in a semester] I hand out my Tips & Tools Packet. This packet contains all the important handouts that will benefit the students throughout the class, and that they'll constantly be referring to.
Tips & Tools Packet in the arrow theme
and in the blue & salmon color scheme
This packet contains:
-A supply list
-MLA quote insertion
-Turning 1st person into 3rd person
-How to Annotate
Here are 2 example pages:
Whenever students have MLA questions, I tell them to look at their Tips & Tools Packet. Whenever they have annotation questions-Tips & Tools Packet. And whenever they have 1st or 2nd person issues in their academic papers, I tell them to look...you guessed it...in their Tips & Tools Packet. So helpful and saves me time!
Hope this tip saves you time too!
