Transcript of Quoteburgers
However -- you need FACTS to support your arguments!
That's where quoteburgers come in.
A quoteburger is just an easy way of incorporating facts into your writing.
EVERY TIME that you make a point, you should use at least one quote to support it. Quoteburgers:
How to use quotes
to defend your point! ARGUMENTS ARE AWESOME! Top Bun: Context
Give the reader some background to help them understand your quote. Example: A group of Australian researchers recently did a study involving homework and test scores. Meat: The Quote
Give the DIRECT QUOTE (word for word) from the
source or text. Put the quoted text in quotation marks, and then put the speaker or author's name and the page number in parenthesis afterwards.
Example: According to Huff Post Science, "data shows that in countries where more time is spent on homework, students score lower on a standardized test" ( Wolchover 1). Botton Bun: Analysis
Explain what your quote means IN YOUR OWN WORDS.
My paragraph might look like this:
One reason that homework should be banned is that it hurts test scores. A group of Australian researchers recently did a study involving homework and test scores. According to Huff Post Science, "data shows that in countries where more time is spent on homework, students score lower on a standardized test" (Wolchover 1). This shows that homework actually decreases a student's ability to do well. Topic Sentence Context (top bun) Quote (meat) Analysis (bottom bun) First, I'll find research to
support my point.
If I want to prove that homework
should be banned, I'll find an article
or journal talking about why homework
should be banned (NOT WIKIPEDIA!!!). Much of this is the author's opinion. A-HA! Facts based on research!!!
If I'm going to use this, I want to make sure that in my context, I explain that this study was done as a result of some Australian research so that people don't think I'm making it up. Example: This shows that homework actually decreases a student's ability to do well. Let's practice together.
