Why do I need quotations?
Blending or Embedding Quotations
Quotations provide evidence or proof from the passage for the answer.
When you address a prompt use the O.RE.O Method
Include the "special stuff" to support your claim.
Here is your referencing or textual evidence
Direct or Indirect Quotation is needed here.
Address the prompt without the use of the following words:
I believe
To me
In my opinion
I think
I feel
1st
2nd
3rd
This section is crucial!
Depending on the strength of your answer to the prompt, you may have to provide clarity of how the quotation addressed what is being asked.
It is evidenced...
It's apparent...
This line hints...

TOO
MUCH QUOTATION?
"Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. More blah blah blah blah. Then, blah blah blah blah blah.
The princess apprehensively agreed, but shrank back in fear.
Blah blah blah blah blah blah, where blah blah blabberty blah. Afterward, the bandit blah blah blah blah."
Scenario
You read a text and the question asks:
After reading the passage, is the princess comfortable with her decision to leave with the thief?
Of the 54 words, what KEYWORDS were MOST important in answering the question?
How would we tactfully, embed these words into a response of to support our view?
After reading the passage, is the princess comfortable with her decision to leave with the thief?
The Princess' decision to leave with the thief seems to be one that she will more than likely regret in the future.
Even though she agreed, she did so
"apprehensively."
She even
"shrank back in fear"
after realizing the magnitude of her decision. It is safe to assume that the princess is not okay with traveling with a criminal and that she will regret not communicating this.

WHAT MAKES THIS WORK?
The Princess' decision to leave with the thief seems to be one that she will more than likely regret in the future.
Even though she agreed, she did so
"apprehensively."
She even
"shrank back in fear"
after realizing the magnitude of her decision. A popular cliche says to trust your first mind, but the princess does not. It is safe to assume that she is not only uncomfortable with traveling with a criminal but that she will regret not communicating this.
Sentence 1:
RESTATES
the Question being asked and
ADDRESSES
the issue with your own personal observation.
