    Integrating Quotations Integrating Quotations Presentation Transcript

    • Integrating Quotations Properly
    • Rules of Thumb
      • Document ideas and references, especially direct quotations.
      • Do NOT put ellipses IN FRONT of a quotation, even if the front is missing.
      • Do NOT put ellipses AT THE END of a quotation, even if the back is missing.
      • Do NOT use more than one period per sentence.
      • ALWAYS make the mixture of the author’s words and your words grammatically correct.
      • If you need to insert a word of your own, or if you need to change a letter in order to make the sentence grammatically correct, use brackets []
    • BORING…
      • Wiesel states, “I n retrospect I must confess that I do not know, or no longer know, what I wanted to achieve with my words ” (Wiesel viii).
    • BETTER!
      • Wiesel “b e lieves he has a moral obligation” to tell his story (Wiesel viii).
      • Wiesel “c o nfess[es]” that he no longer knows “w h at [he] wanted to achieve” with his words (Wiesel viii).
      • Wiesel is “a witness who believes” that his memoir Night can help the world understand the Holocaust and hopefully “p r event the enemy from enjoying one last victory” (Wiesel viii).
