Students often have trouble embedding quotations from a text into their writing. Using quotation and themes from the novel Matched and several poems that appear in the novel Matched, students learn to use a simple equation to help them embed a quote into their writing. This equation I like to call the EQE (Evidence-based phrase + quotation + explanation). There is an example provided to help your students understand the EQE and how it should be executed. This will help your students prepare for writing essays such as Literary Analysis and Research Simulation Task, where they must embed quotations to provide textual evidence.
