    1. 1. Why use quotes in an essay? Whom do you trust?
    2. 2. Why use quotes in an essay? Whom do you trust?When faced with the question, most people choose the doctor as opposed tothe clown as someone they trust. Doctors are required to complete years ofschooling/training and are required to take an oath.The white lab coat, the stethoscope, and the posture are symbols that weassociate with credibility.
    3. 3. Why use quotes in an essay? Whom do you trust? Just as the doctor’s attire of a stethoscope and lab coat symbolizescredibility, a writer can use tools such as specific quotes from a text, theformat of the paper, and correct punctuation/grammar to help convince theaudience (the readers) that he is a credible writer.
    4. 4. EFFECTIVECOMMUNICATION The rhetorical triangle represents three important elements of effective argument and communication. 1.Ethos: Is the person making the argument credible? 2.Logos: Is the argument logical? Does it makes sense? 3.Pathos: Is the writer/speaker appealing to the emotions of the audience?
    5. 5. Why use quotes in an essay? Ethos: The credibility of the argument A writer should use specific quotes from the text to support her point. It’s not enough to just explain an idea. Instead, use the actual words—a quote—from the book to help establish an argument. When doing research, writers should bring in the work of other experts in the field to help establish credibility. The writer should document the sources appropriately depending on the preferred style guide for the paper such as MLA or APA.
    6. 6. How should I format the quotes? Think of the Quote Sandwich First, you have to introduce the quote. This is your top piece of bread. Second, use the quote. This is the “good stuff” in the middle of your sandwich. Third, analyze the quote. This is your bottom piece of bread.

    8. 8. Structure for AnalysisParagraph  The first sentence should introduce the title and author.  The next few sentences should provide some general information leading up to the quote.   Right before the quote, use a signal phrase: The author explains, shows, states, argues, illustrates…  Chose and insert a meaningful quote. After the quote, provide a few sentences of commentary. Refer back to the reading log. The student may be able to use something she’s already written—something that was in the right column.
    9. 9. Step 1: Introduce the author, book,and general overview of workTitle of Book: The CompadreAuthor: Dr. Jose Torres__________________________________________ In his book The Compadre, Dr. Torresexplores the complexities of relationships.
    10. 10. Step 1: Introduce the author and book Never assume that your audience already knows the work that you referring to even if the audience is your professor.

    12. 12. Step 2: Provide a few sentences ofbackground/context leading up to the quoteIn his book The Compadre, Dr. Torresexplores the complexities of relationships. Heemphasizes that friendships can be verydifficult to keep up. Although intentions maybe sincere, life can get in the way. One of thechallenges can be communication.
    13. 13. Step Three: Chose a meaningful quote and introduce it by using a signal phrase A signal phrase is group of words that signals that a quote will be introducedAccording to Dr. Torres, “____________________” (50).Dr. Torres states, “__________________________” (35).Dr. Torres complicates matters further when he writesthat “__________” (56).The author demonstrates this concept “________” (4). Notice that the page number goes in parentheses followed by punctuation. Adapted from: Graff, Gerald And Cathy Birkenstein. They Say, I Say. New York: Norton and Company. 2006. Print.
    14. 14. Choose different signal phrases to add variety
    15. 15. Step Three: Introduce a quote by using a signal phrase In his book The Compadre, Dr. Torres explores thecomplexities of relationships. He emphasizes thatfriendships can be very difficult to keep up. Althoughintentions may be sincere, life can get in the way. Oneof the challenges can be communication. The authordemonstrates this when the character “Joe, in a fit ofrage, screams at his friend Sue” (Torres 4).
    16. 16. Step 4: Provide commentary/analysis after the quoteIn other words, __________________To put it another way,_____________________________ is important because_____________Although ______________ may seem trivial, it is in fact crucial interms of today’s concern over____________.Ultimately, what is at stake here is___________________ Adapted from: Graff, Gerald And Cathy Birkenstein.

    17. 17. Step 4: Provide commentary/analysis after the quote In his book The Compadre, Dr. Torres emphasizes thecomplexities of relationships. He suggests that friendships canbe very difficult to keep up. Although intentions may be sincere,life can get in the way. One of the challenges can becommunication. The author shows this when the character “Joe,in a fit of rage, screams at his friend Sue” (Torres 4). Ultimatelywhat is at stake here is the relationship. When arguments turninto screaming matches, friendships can be damaged. Ratherthan screaming, friends should calmly explain their problems,which can perhaps preserve a friendship.
    18. 18. Avoid the followingmistakes Failing to introduce the title of the work and the author. Starting a sentence or (paragraph) with a quote. Remember, you need to introduce the quote using a signal phrase. Ending a paragraph with a quote. Remember, you need to follow every quote with some of your own commentary or analysis.
