Use favorite movie quotes to model integration!
Integrating a quote into a sentence of their own is one of the most difficult skills to master for young writers. This resource will help introduce the concept to students and, with continued use, improve their quote integration.
Included are two pages:
The first is an overview of quote integration, with three different, progressively more mature, ways to blend quotes into meaningful sentences.
The second has detailed instructions for how I teach this skill using the movie quote example. I keep the first sheet printed out and available for students to use as a reference in my classroom anytime this skill is necessary.
The skill of quote integration is necessary for students to master for many writing tasks such as literary analysis and research, as well as for important assessments such as the Texas STAAR test and AP English tests.
Check out my other products, including short answer response practice for STAAR that requires this quote integration skill.
