Transcript of Writing the Paper and Quote Weaving

Writing the Paper and Quote Weaving or
What do I do now?

When to quote?
Ask yourself: Is this a fact that I can paraphrase myself in my own words… or is it essential to use the author’s words or phrases?

Don’t put a basic fact or object from a story in quotes, unless it’s very unique or distinct. The following examples DON’T need quotes:
Unnecessary quoting: Annie’s boyfriend transforms into “some kind of ape” and then a month later, a “sea turtle.”
Do Paraphrase: Annie’s boyfriend transforms into an ape and then a month later, a sea turtle.
*(Notice, in the paraphrase I took out “some kind of”. These are the writer’s words and using that exact phrasing would be plagiarism).

When to Paraphrase:
Text: “"Dignity is as essential to human life as water, food, and oxygen. The stubborn retention of it, even in the face of extreme physical hardship, can hold a man's soul in his body long past the point at which the body should have surrendered it" (Hillenbrandt 11).

Paraphrase: In Louie’s exploration of his circumstances, he thought of what he could in fact control: his dignity..

Always explain:
How your quote supports your thesis.
Writing the paper:
And that is how you put it together!

It goes like this:
Point you want to make
Quote and/or supporting detail (provide context)
Your original brilliant, original commentary. You can change up the order but all elements are present in a well written paper.
Use the author’s exact words. We cannot reinvent or change the writer’s text.

WEAVE only what you need from a quote into your own sentence. The star of the writing is YOU and YOUR THINKING. You don’t need to use an entire long quote…so. . .

Dumping:
When Ben changes into an ape, Annie still feels connected to him. “Even before I saw the eyes, I knew it was him” (Bender 6).
Our goal in is to to weave a quote into ONE complete sentence. The example above is TWO sentences. We want to find a way to WEAVE the quote into our original sentence.
Weaving:
When Ben changes into an ape, though his appearance has changed, Annie still feels connected to him and “knew it was him” (Bender 6).

Notice that without the quotation marks, it’s a complete sentence that could stand on its own.

When Ben first begins changing, Annie seems to embrace his new form and even “wanted to know him in every possible way” (Bender 6).

A sentence with a quote must be complete—not a run-on.
Example of PROVIDING NO CONTEXT
David judges them as “alone and out of place” (Sedaris 4).
Example of PROVIDING CONTEXT
Because they showed up at his door in their homemade costumes the day after Halloween, David judges the Tomkey children as “alone and out of place” (Sedaris 4).

. Include the CONTEXT of the quote: WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, WHY, HOW
Some Examples:
Upon discovering that Ben is an ape and no longer human, Annie recalls that she “didn’t even really care” and “didn’t panic” (Bender 6). In fact she sits with him outside and brushes the fur on his hand. This demonstrates her open-minded attitude. Even though he has changed, she stays with him, as if she’s hoping their relationship can somehow continue.

Explanation at end.
Even though Ben changes, Annie remains open-minded and stays with him, as if she’s hoping their relationship can somehow continue. Upon discovering that he is an ape and no longer human, she recalls that she “didn’t even really care” and “didn’t panic” (Bender 6). In fact she sits with him outside and brushes the fur on his hand.

Explanation at beginning
Explanation in the middle
Upon discovering that Ben is an ape and no longer human, Annie recalls that she “didn’t even really care” and “didn’t panic” (Bender 6). Even though he has changed, she remains open-minded and stays with him, and her actions demonstrate that she’s hoping their relationship can somehow continue. For example, she sits with him outside and brushes the fur on his hand.
