Teach your students to use quotations in their research.
Seamlessly embedding quotations takes practice. Knowing when and how to insert them effectively is an important skill, so it makes sense to give students lots of opportunity to work on it.
This package includes:
A detailed and colorful slideshow (PDF) to guide your discussion with the students. The slide show covers:
-The purpose of using quotations in writing
-Making a point, providing proof, giving an explanation
-Providing context for quotations
-The “formula” for seamless integration
-Explaining the significance of the quotation
-Using square brackets, ellipses, and block quotes
-Great word choice: avoiding the overuse of “says”
2. Corresponding student handouts & exercises
3. Posters for your classroom that provide an easy-to-read reference for your students (color & black and white)
This lesson could be done all at once, or spread out over a number of days by using each topic as a mini-lesson.
