Using Quotations - Westerville City School District

Using Quotations Use them to make yourself look GREAT. Using Quotations Introduce your idea, then use a quotation to support it.

Example of effective use There are so many important people cheating, Weve got scientists, professors who cheat, journalists, lawyers and CEOs who cheat (Griffin). Because so many important people cheat, its no wonder students believe its acceptable.

When you use quotations, you need Context for the quotation There needs to be a purpose for every quotation Make sure the quotation fits the idea. A big idea that the quotation is supporting

Example of problem created by quotations without context Cheating is a shortcut and its a pretty efficient one in a lot of cases (Slobogan). The student thinks cheating is an easy way to get out of doing work.

Example of quotation without clear purpose When the narrator had just finished hiding the body, the police arrive. He invites them in and they sit and chat. The narrator claims to have heard an odd noise starting to emerge: the beating of the old mans heart. He soon goes out of control, It grew louder-louder-LOUDER! (Poe 83). He begins throwing chairs and screaming at the noise that clearly isnt there. He is the only one hears it. Also, he thought he

hears the beating of the old mans heart, when really, it is his own. Introduce Idea First When people are insane, they cannot control their behavior. The narrator shows he has no control over his behavior. After he has just finished hiding the body, the police arrive. He invites them in and they sit and chat. The narrator claims to have heard an odd noise starting to emerge: the beating of the

old mans heart. He soon goes out of control, It grew louderlouder-LOUDER! (Poe 83). He begins throwing chairs and screaming at the noise that clearly isnt there. He is the only one who hears it. Quotations must relate to idea being developed Example of quotation not relating I cheat because I forget to do something

or worry about my grades. There are no excuses for cheating though. I believe cheating is not wrong. People expect us to attend 7 classes a day, keep a 4.0 GPA, not go crazy and turn in all our work the next day. What are we supposed to do, fail? (Slobogan). Give the idea, then the evidence

to support it Mr. Morris believed Mr. White should not use the monkeys paw. When White asked for it, Morris simply said, dont blame me for what happens. If youre smart, youll throw it back in the fire, (Jacobs 189).

How do I document in text? In Among the Hidden, Haddix shows that population policy can lead people to confuse right from wrong. Luke shows he understands this because he realizes it wasnt truly wrong for him to exist, just illegal (137). Since it is usually considered wrong to do something illegal, he has always considered it wrong for him to be alive. Finally he realizes that the

law is wrong, not him. Other items to note Dont confuse your ideas or inferences with quotes or paraphrases.

You can put your ideas on notecards to help you organize, but they are not evidence You also need text support for evidence End-Text Documentation Works Cited Ganger, Jake. Class Debate. 6 Dec.
