Research Skills: Direct Quotes AND the Fine Details
Direct quotes seem simple enough--that is until you get into all the technical details. In this product students are given an easy to follow guide on some of the most important technical aspects of direct quotes such as use of the word "sic" and "qtd. in". Or "What is common knowledge"?
Make a tough topic to get through more manageable for students with this product.
This product includes
1) A one page outline and practice of the MOST basic elements of direct quotes.
2) A one page outline of some of the technical aspects of direct quotes. Each "rule" includes an explanation and example.
2) A quiz over the rules with a key.
Included are a PDF (ready to print) and Word formats. The fonts in the Word document format have been change to Times New Roman so that it is compatible with your fonts--feel free to jazz the document up with your own special fonts. Please be aware that some of the graphics may not line up-using the Word formats may call for some extra attention. Unfortunately, all the pizzazz that Photoshop and Pages allow for is not compatible with Word.
