Responsible academic writing involves a good deal of direct quotation from sources. Let’s practice that now, to make sure that we’ve got the finer points figured out by the time the essay is due.
Find a quote from one original article that you think will serve you well in your essay.
- Include an introductory “signal” phrase that cues us in on the context for the quote, and then the quote itself. Follow this quote with a phrase or sentence in your own words that summarizes, interprets, or explains the quote in your own words.
If you have any questions at all about using quotations in your writing, please include them in your submission.
This work is just a draft–you may choose to use it or not in the final version of your essay at your discretion.
