Transcript of Copy of Embedding Quotes

Embedding Quotes Guidelines for Quotation Marks Quotes are used to support your argument, not make an argument. Never include quotes without your own analysis, argument, or insight. Keep quotes short; do not incude quotes that are longer than 2 sentences. When you include quotes with your sentences, they must be grammatically correct. Do not include quotes in your thesis statement. What is an embedded quote? Embedding is the weaving of somebody elses' words or ideas into your own writing to support your idea. Embedding Quotes
Strengthens your argument
Allows you to include information such as who said the quote, who the quote is directed to, and what the quote is talking about. Signal phrases are used to introduce quotes Example Signal Phrases:
According to ___ ...
As ____ explains...
____ claims that, ... Use [brackets] to indicate changes you've made to quotes.
Verb Tense
Comprehension Ellipses. . .
are used to indicate that you have left out a part of the quote Use ellipses when you've left out words from the middle of a quote not the beginning or the end. Sandwiching Quotes
-First sentence introduces the quote
-Second sentences contains the quote
-Third sentence analyzes the significance of the quote Punctuating Quotes Commas are not necessary when the quoted word or phrase fits into the sentence without a pause or break. Example: Lennie likes to eat his beans "with ketchup" (Steinbeck 8). You almost ALWAYS need a comma after a form of "to say." Example: My father always said, "Be careful what you wish for" (Torres). In-text citations go at the end of a quoted sentence and include either the author's last name or the title of the article. Ending punctuation goes after the in-text citation.

Example: Gatsby was known for his "pink rag of a suit" (Fitzgerald 154). So avoid quote bombs! Never toss a quote into a paragraph and wait for something amazing to happen!
