Level-Appropriate Directions for Creating Bibliographies
Writing A-Z Bibliography Guides offer level-appropriate directions explaining how to create bibliographies. Bibliographies are source lists for nonfiction writing, and Writing A-Z's guides provide instructions on how to appropriately cite references, such as books, magazines, encyclopedias, or websites, in source lists. Bibliography Guides are available for beginning, early developing, developing, and fluent writers.
Why Use Bibliography Guides
When writing nonfiction text, students must do research using different sources of information to present the necessary facts to support their writing. Bibliography Guides provide easy reference for students to create a list of sources at the end of their nonfiction writing.
How to Use Bibliography Guides
Provide each student with a printed Bibliography Guide that matches the appropriate developmental writing level. Model finding the features listed for each type of source in the guide. Show students where to find the author, publisher, date of publication, or other details that a bibliography requires for each type of source.
Level-appropriate Bibliography Guides ensure students' bibliographies become more complex as students become more familiar with the process.
