  2. 2. Don’t do “Hit-and-Run” quotation. In other words: Integrate, don’t insert. Photo by SteuveFE @Flickr
  3. 3. Think to yourself, “I speak my part, I refer to another person’s view, and I provide a citation of the statement.” With research papers, you are having a conversation with an entire room of people, introducing each person in turn, and serving as the moderator.

  4. 4. Introduce the quote The Sandwich Method>>> or reference. Give the quote, reference, paraphrase, or summary. Comment on its relevance to what you’re saying. Photo by bingbing @Flickr (Make sure to cite it.)

  6. 6. Introduce Joe Critic, in his exploration of masculinity in the music of the Beatles, suggests that . . .
  7. 7. Don't just repeat yourself with the critic's words: Ringo Starr was the toughest Beatle. "Of all the Beatles, Ringo Starr was the toughest" (Critic 43). Integrate and Enhance Instead, do something like this: Ringo was the toughest Beatle. As Joe Critic says, he was the Beatle most likely to "fly into a rage and smash something-- often over another Beatle's head" (47).
  8. 8. Reduce quoted material to the best, most essential bits. Trim As Joe Critic suggests in his exploration of masculinity in the music of the Beatles, Ringo Starr was "the band's streetfighting man" (45).
  9. 9. Your quoted material should provide something new and interesting, beyond summary and basic information. Select Ringo Starr was the lead actor in a 1981 movie called Caveman. New York Times film critic Janet Maslin noted at the time that Ringo’s performance is overshadowed by his special effects co-stars, particularly a likable dinosaur that “rolls his eyes, waggles his tongue, pats his tummy and has a very sweet smile.” Obviously, the film did not make Ringo the next Cary Grant, but he did end up marrying lead actress Barbara Bach.
  10. 10. YOU should get the last word. Comment Joe Critic suggests in his exploration of masculinity in the music of the Beatles that Ringo Star was "the band's streetfighting man" (45). But Critic does not consider Yoko Ono's punishing left hook and its affect on the band's music.

  12. 12. “The term ‘plagiarism’ comes from the word plagiarius, which literally meant ‘kidnapper.’” Peter Morgan and Glenn Reynolds, qtd. in Envision by What What @Flickr Don’t Do It.
  13. 13. End. Please note that references to Mr. Starr as a short-tempered street-fighting man are completely false. He’s really a nice guy.
