Integrating Quotations How to Incorporate Quotes into Analysis of Writing What is a quotation? Any word, phrase, line, or sentence taken from a

passage Not the same as dialogue Why do I need to integrate quotes? Think of a quotation as a noun: a thing. If you drop the quotation into a

paragraph without integrating it, you create a fragment. This is why you must tag, introduce, or embed a quotation within a sentence. Dropped Quotation: Incorrect Jack of Diamonds is characterized as an obnoxious, bullying, spoiled child.

"Jack of Diamonds would have been a handsome boy if not for his bullying personality and for the fact that he had the biggest, roundest rear end in Wonderland" (Beddor 33). This absurd physical trait is reflective of Jack's inner ugliness. He constantly looks for opportunities to wield his wealth and status.

How do you correct it? Remember the acronym TIE: Tag Introduce Embed Tag

Jack of Diamonds is characterized as an obnoxious, bullying, spoiled child. "Jack of Diamonds would have been a handsome boy if not for his bullying personality and for the fact that he had the biggest, roundest rear end in Wonderland," the narrator reveals (Beddor 33). This absurd physical trait is reflective of Jack's inner ugliness. He constantly looks for opportunities to wield

his wealth and status. Introduce Jack of Diamonds is characterized as an obnoxious, bullying, spoiled child. The narrator recounts, "Jack of Diamonds would have been a handsome boy if not for his bullying personality and for the fact that he had the biggest, roundest rear end in

Wonderland" (Beddor 33). This absurd physical trait is reflective of Jack's inner ugliness. He constantly looks for opportunities to wield his wealth and status. Embed Jack of Diamonds is characterized as an obnoxious, bullying, spoiled child. The narrator concedes that Jack "would

have been a handsome boy," but he has a "bullying personality" and "the biggest, roundest rear end in Wonderland" (Beddor 33). This absurd physical trait is reflective of Jack's inner ugliness. He constantly looks for opportunities to wield his wealth and status. Close your eyes as your teacher reads aloud this paragraph.

Can you distinguish the quoted portions from the writer's words? Which method sounds best - tag, introduce, or embed? Jack of Diamonds is characterized as an obnoxious, bullying, spoiled child. The narrator concedes that he "would have been a handsome boy," but he had a "bullying personality" and "the biggest, roundest rear end in Wonderland" (Beddor

33). This absurd physical trait is reflective of Jack's inner ugliness. He constantly looks for opportunities to wield his wealth and status. Embed While tagging and introducing are okay, embedding quotations

is definitely the most effective method of integrating quotations into your writing. We want to strive for the best. Dialogue Dialogue is

conversation among or between characters. Dialogue is distinguished in the text by quotation marks. Dialogue can be used as textual evidence,

too. How do I TIE dialogue quotations? Tag, introduce, or embed, as usual. Place single quotation marks where double quotation marks appear in the text and surround the entire quotation with double

quotation marks. How do I TIE dialogue quotations? Quotation - "I admit that I took a few liberties with your story," Dodgson explained, "to make it ours, as I said I would" (Beddor 3). Tag - "'I admit that I took a few liberties with your story,' Dodgson explained, to make it ours," writes the author (Beddor 3). Introduce Beddor writes, "'I admit that I took a few liberties

with your story,' Dodgson explained, 'to make it ours, as I said I would,'" (3). Embed - Reverend Dodgson explains to Alyss, "'I admit that I took a few liberties with your story,'" in order "'to make it ours'" (Beddor 3). Punctuating !'s Tag - "'Off with their heads!' the woman screamed. 'Off with their stinking, boring heads!'" Redd

orders as she storms the Heart Palace (Beddor 50). Introduce- Redd orders as she storms the Heart Palace, "'Off with their heads!' the woman screamed. 'Off with their stinking, boring heads!'" (Beddor 50). Embed- Storming the Heart Palace, Redd orders, "'Off with their heads!'" and again, "'Off with their stinking, boring heads!'" (Beddor 50).

Punctuating Quotations with Question or Exclamation Marks Tag- "'Alice, is something wrong?'" Dodgson asks (Beddor 3). Introduce- Dodgson asks, "'Alice, is something wrong?'" (Beddor 3). Embed- Seeing the despairing look on Alyss's face, Dodgson asks her if there "is something wrong" (Beddor 3).

End Punctuation Always place an end punctuation mark at the end of the sentence after the parenthetical citation. Seeing the despairing look on Alyss's face, Dodgson asks her if there "is

something wrong" (Beddor 3). What if I want to use part of a quotation? Use ellipses... After screaming at him, "She ran...leaving the Reverend Dodgson...-shaken, unsure of

what had just happened" (Beddor 4). Now, it is your turn... Carousel Each chart paper has a quotation from the novel. In groups, students rotate through the papers following the teacher's directions to integrate the quotations.

As students rotate, the group will integrate the quotation into a sentence on the chart paper following the teacher's direction of tag, introduce, or embed. Each group needs a different colored marker. Tag Students rotate through the chart papers writing a new sentence

each time with a tag for each quotation. Introduce Students rotate through the chart papers writing a new sentence each time with an introduction for each quotation. Embed

Students rotate through the chart papers writing a new sentence each time embedding the quotation. Suggested Quotations You mean you did it on purpose?" she asked. Alyss to Dodgson on page 3

Even in her pouts, he thought his daughter a delightful creature. King Nolan on page 19 He talked to himself because there weren't many people as learned as he, and he liked to talk to learned people. Description of Bibwit on page 21

The book contained a catalog of atrocities committed by Redd - torture, the slaughtering of prisoners, mass graves. Description of the civil war chronicle on page 25 Jabberwocky were huge, ferocious

creatures living in the Volcanic Plains - a land of active volcanoes, lava rivers, and geysers of noxious gas, extremely dangerous for any Wonderlander to enter. Narrator page 29 "No one is ever going to believe me now!" she screamed. Alyss to Dodgeson page 4

Evaluate At the end of the carousel, each group goes around the room once more and places a star beside the sentence that has the best TIE. Groups should be able to explain why their choice is most effective.
