2Define quotation/quote:Definition:Write down a guess.Look at the next slide. Add to your definition.Compare with a partner. Report out.3Confusion over Quotation Marks:A quotation is a line of text surrounded by quotation marks. A quotation is used to add information to your own writing while still giving the original writer credit.

What types of writing use dialogue?Quotations: essays, articles, textbooks, etc. Tend to be NON-FICTIONDialogue: stories, novels, scripts, etc. Tend to be FICTION

Activity: have each student circle the most important one.Share with each other. Report out.While they report out, count how many said cite it Make the class do it again (just tell them how many were correct) until they are right.

Many students paraphrase without citing and they think its okay. I talk to them about how they need to make citing sources habitual.
