Your Assignment

Complete the following 3-part exercise in a Word, Google Docs, or other word processor document:

PART 1: Read and summarize:

Read one of the articles from the "Links to Readings" course menu button (one that you have not used for an assignment so far) and summarize its main ideas in 100 - 200 words--using your own words, no quotations.

PART 2: Block quotation exercise:

Using the guidelines for block quotations in Chapter 2, compose two block quotations (one in APA format and parenthetical citation and one in MLA format and parenthetical citation) of your own by quoting a few sentences that you found particularly important or interesting from the article you have selected. Use different sentences for each block quotation. Make sure you include the author's name either in your introduction to the quotation or in your parenthetical citation at the end of the quotation. After you feel confident you have the quotation done properly, refer to pages 261 and 266 for specific instructions on in-text citations to do them properly, too.

(Note [1] how the writer of the sample block quotations in Chapter 2 first introduces the ideas in the quotations before he quotes them and [2] how the writer responds to the ideas after he quotes them. Do the same with your two block quotations; we call this the “quotation sandwich”: you first introduce the quotation; then you quote the quotation; then you explain or respond to the quotation.)

PART 3: Integrated quotation exercise:

Using the guidelines for integrated quotations in Chapter 2, create one of each of these seven types integrated quotations—using only MLA parenthetical citation this time—in which you quote one idea that you found particularly important or interesting from the article you have selected; you will use the same idea for all seven types. 
For each integrated quotation: Make sure you include the author's name either in your introduction to the quotation or in your parenthetical citation at the end of the quotation. After you feel confident you have the quotation done properly, refer to page 266 for specific instructions on in-text citations to do them properly, too.
