Nearly 140 Legal Research and Writing programs already rely on the Interactive Citation Workbook (ICW) to provide a self-paced, pedagogically sound, and mentally stimulating way for students to learn citation. Available in both Bluebook and ALWD versions, the annually revised ICW uses a building-block approach to learning citation. Individual chapters include explanatory text with examples, a checklist summary of the text, and a citation exercise for practicing and reinforcing the rules covered in the chapter. Students can complete a citation exercise either in their ICW Workbook or in the newly updated and enhanced online Workstation, accessible via Lexis Advance. Doing the exercises online provides immediate feedback for both correct and incorrect answers. For incorrect answers, references to the citation rules needed to correct the answer allow students to become familiar with using their citation guide as a reference and further enhance the learning experience.

This carefully designed workbook helps students master legal citation through a series of exercises coordinated with Understanding and Mastering The Bluebook. Starting at beginner level, the workbook introduces students to basic citation forms, then builds on this foundation through a step-by-step series of targeted exercises that both reinforce the basics and introduce new rules. Each exercise presents a caption from an authority and all the necessary information to prepare a full or short form citation. The workbook concentrates on the citations used most in the classroom and in practice. Workbook exercises are grouped to correspond with chapters in Understanding and Mastering The Bluebook, with one or more sets of exercises of ten questions each. The more complex citation forms, such as cases and statutes, are divided into multiple ten-question sets, each targeting a specific subset of rules. A review exercise is provided for cases and statutes which can be used as additional practice or as a quiz. The workbook is planned to give students the practice they need to master citation, while easing the burden on teachers to create exercises and provide detailed feedback. Space is provided in the workbook for students to write the citations, with the pages perforated for easy tear out. A Teacher's Manual provides background and introductory material, teaching tips, and most important, detailed answers and explanations for all workbook exercises.
