What educators are saying

This resource is clear and engaging. My students' embedding of quotations always improves after this lesson.
These slides were perfect for teaching my seventh graders about embedding quotes. I love all of Laura's resources--highly recommend!


Weary of students who slap quoted material into their essays without any framing or support? Fix this common mistake made by young writers with these interactive lesson materials.

Begin with a “pre-test”/skill assessment of students’ knowledge regarding M.L.A. citation formatting and concrete detail/quote framing.

Then, work through the answers to the skill assessment pre-test with a dynamic lecture (30 slides) that uses compelling examples and modern design to hold students’ interest. (Let's be honest – lecturing about writing can be dull. However, leading an interactive lecture/discussion of students’ answers to their prior knowledge worksheet is a far more engaging approach.)

Finally, give students a reference sheet/handout to keep in their binders or writing portfolios. This sheet will serve as a handy guide when they start writing their next essay body paragraphs.

All materials are included in both uneditable Google Drive and PDF versions.
