Product Description
Explanation and practice for how to use quotations in formal essays (such as research) and in narrative dialogue. Download includes:

* Editable PowerPoint presentation explaining how to incorporate quotations into essays. Topics include the importance of using exact quotes, attributions for formal and narrative quotes, incorporating partial quotes into the text, and punctuation rules for quotations. Several examples are given with an opportunity for students to practice writing quotes with attributions. NOTE: I have used these materials with ESL students who are preparing to enter college-level courses, and have found that one of the most difficult things for them to master is being sure to include accurate quotes. The presentation stresses this issue, and because it may or may not be a problem for all students, I have made the presentation editable so that instructors can choose to include or delete certain slides as it meets their needs.

* A handout that summarizes the main points from the PowerPoint presentation.

* 14 Task cards that will give the students an opportunity to practice (preferably with a partner) the different types of quotes and issues as addressed in the presentation and how to use attributions appropriately to convey tone.

* An expanded activities handout with five optional activities that students can do with a partner or individually. These are a little more time consuming than the activities presented on the task cards and could be done as an outside assignment or project. These activities will give students an opportunity to work closely with quotations and express their creativity.

By the end of these activities, students should feel much more confident with incorporating quotations into their writing and conveying appropriate tone and meaning.
