Students who are just starting out or who have minimal experience using quotes often think they have to find quotation marks in order to quote. Other students will find a quote and "put it into their own words." For the aforementioned reasons, I created THIS graphic organizer and activity. From that day forward, my students have had the clarity they needed!
Students will fill out an introductory definition and tips page. Next, they will read ANY text. Finally, students will identify 3 quotations/citations, then record and paraphrase them onto the graphic organizers. A shorter version is included for once the introduction has been made-then the quotes/paraphrasing are top to bottom for an "at a glance" view/assessment.
Designed for multiple uses, multi-use.
-introductory definition/tips page
-quoting and paraphrasing practice pages :2 versions are included (one shorter version for additional practice)
-key/sample/teaching suggestions page
This file can also be purchased in a bundle-see my store.
Flexible use options:
-use as an introductory or remediation lesson
-for use with any length of text and even text books
-use as a reading or writing lesson
-use as an assessment
-use as homework or as part of a larger project
-use to supplement any reading or writing program
-use in class and/or at home
-use to revisit/review skill throughout the year
Paraphrasing shows understanding! Anyone can "repeat what the author already said!"
This is a very different product compared to my "Defining and Practicing: Quoting, Paraphrasing, and Inferring."
