Integrating Quotes from a Prose Source

Description:

Course(s) in which assignment was used: English 102, English 230, English 411

Original source of assignment: Parts of this were from the OWL, but I’ve modified it beyond recognition over the years.

Brief summary of assignment aim and/or student skill set(s) developed through this assignment:

In this short review students will go over the basic mechanics of integrating literary quotes into their essays. The brief overview is followed by a series of quiz questions which are then launching pads for discussion.

Assignment timeline: one class

Constraints (if any): The skills should probably be reinforced by having students write a fully integrated paragraph.
