Title: How to Quote-In Details
Post by: karenmin on March 08, 2012, 12:54:56 AM
As I was teaching the ESL writing classes, I noticed that many of my students have trouble using quoations no matter how much we emphasize the imporatnce of using proper citations. I think it's because they are not familiar with the quotation itself, not to mention the use of brackets, ellipsis, and signal phrases. So I made a handout that will guide them through the quoting techniques. I also chose an excerpt from Jane Yolen's "America's Cinderella" which seems very interesting and which could be used for many different lessons.
