Explaining SAC 1: How to use quotes (4th Lesson)
Going after the best part of a quote
The best way of incorporating quotes into your writing is to
them into your own sentences.

Avoid placing whole-sentence quotes between your own sentences.

Achieving this often requires you to select only the
most relevant and compelling part

of the quote so that it can be manipulated more effectively.
1. Working in pairs.

2. Consider the quote below:

"When we are green, still half-created, we believe that our dreams are rights…and that falling and dying are for quitters. We live on the innocent and monstrous assurance that we…have a special arrangement whereby we will be allowed to stay green forever…"

3. Highlight the key words/most relevant and compelling parts.

4. We have five minutes.

5. Discussion to follow.
Quality of quotes: Questions to ask yourself
Is the quote
to the point I am tryingmake?

Have I made the
between the quote and my point clear enough?

Is the quote
or am I quoting unimportant things?

Is the quote the
best one
to make my point, or are there more precise quotes available?

Is the quote
in context
or have I used it in a way that misrepresents its true meaning?
Activity: Comparing use of quotes in two samples
1. Working individually.

2. Read and annotate the pretext and the two samples.

3. Answer the questions thoroughly.

4. For Question 4, use the quotes in the handout I gave you.
Next steps to prepare...
1. Go through chapter summaries (available on Compass under learning tasks and others online).

2. Go through lists of quotes. memorise them. You will need them.
