Hola, mis estudiantes.
Today begins our journey into the Skill of the Week.
Often, as writers who analyze literature, we’re required to support the ideas we get from novels with examples from the text. There is a very specific way to do this in order to do it properly.
Integrated Quotations: combining an author’s words with our own ideas
This is a three-part process. It includes:
1. A Signal Phrase–a phrase indicating that we will be using a quote
2. The quote itself with the page number
3. An explanation of the quote
Tomorrow we will begin using our first type of signal phrase. Yay.
