How I Use It
Students used Easy Bib in creating annotated bibliographies. This allowed them to follow the MLA style of citation. It worked in that was a quick way to cover a difficult topic that has rigid specifications. It didn't work in that it did most of the work for students finding the information about their resources for them in order to create an MLA citation.
My Take
This website would be great after already addressing the individual parts of the MLA citation format because it provides a speedy way to document sources correctly. Otherwise students rely too much on the website doing all the work. I paired this with vocabulary lists with words like publisher, copyright, etc. so as to get the students familiar with the citation jargon.
