Quote blending, proper citations, and
everything else to prepare you for the
writing of your paper!
TAKE NOTES. THIS WILL HELP YOU
WITH YOUR NEXT STEPS.
Next steps:
• Progress Checks are all done! YAY
• Your next assignment, which is due next
Friday, is an outline
• I will give you an outline and graphic organizer
for this
BUT! FIRST!
• We have to ensure that you know how
to properly cite, blend quotes, and
even make a decent and effective
outline
1) Citations
• Let’s start with color coding each source you
have. Spend the next five-ten minutes
highlighting all 6 sources in different colors
• Also highlight important quotes from your
interviews that you will use
1) Citations continued
• Now, look at your Works Cited page
• Whatever is listed first for each source on your
WC page is how you cite this source
• FOR EXAMPLE…
Example with an author…
• Author stated:
– Doe, John. “How to Get an ‘A’”
• John Doe states that : “………………” (PAGE NUMBER if
it’s a book)
• “………………….” (Doe).
NOTICE THE QUOTE WITHIN A QUOTE:
“ ‘….’ “
No Author:
– “How to Get an ‘A.’” www.notes.org.
• In the article “How to Get an ‘A’” the author
states, “………………….”
or
• It is stated that “………………..” (“How to Get an
‘A’”).
Let’s Practice
• 1) Smith, John. "Steelers win Super Bowl
XLIII." Pittsburgh Post-Gazette 2 Feb. 2009: 46. Print.
• 2) "Obama inaugurated as President." Time 21
Jan. 2009: 21-23. LexisNexis. Web. 1 Feb.
2009.
• www.bibme.org <-USE THIS IF LOST
Now that you know how to properly
cite something…
• Let’s discuss what requires quotes and what is
paraphrasing
• **this is extremely important. If you use
quotes incorrectly or do not properly
paraphrase, THIS IS CONSIDERED PLAGARISM
and results in an “F”
2) Quotes VS. Paraphrasing
• Quotes are WORD FOR WORD and MUST BE
CITED.
• Let’s look at an article:
– http://www.aspca.org/about-us/faq/petstatistics.aspx
2) Quotes
• Quote anything that you NEED to say WORD
FOR WORD (for example, statistics).
• Your quotes cannot be longer than three lines
Quote example
• For example, the one example is stated as followed:
• “Approximately 5 million to 7 million companion
animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year,
and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized
(60 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats). Shelter
intakes are about evenly divided between those
animals relinquished by owners and those picked up by
animal control. These are national estimates; the
percentage of euthanasia may vary from state to state”
Interruption: MY CUTE PREVIOUS
SHELTER DOGS
Quote
• Let’s say I want to quote this, but it’s longer
than three lines. “Approximately 5 million to 7
million companion animals enter animal shelters
nationwide every year, and approximately 3 million
to 4 million are euthanized “
• I would put something like:
– Although many dogs are adopted every year, it is
stated that “5 million to 7 million companion
animals enter animal shelters nationwide every
year” (“Pet Statistics”)
Quotes
• You practice:
• The average cost of basic food, supplies,
medical care and training for a dog or cat is
$600 to $900 annually. Seventy-eight percent
of pet dogs and 88 percent of pet cats are
spayed or neutered. (Source: “Pet Statistics”)
Paraphrasing is COMPLETELY
DIFFERENT
• YOU CANNOT CANNOT CANNOT CANNOT
CANNOT CHANGE ONE OR TWO WORDS AND
CALL THIS PARAPHRASING
• You must read the ENTIRE paragraph, page, or
article and THEN PUT IT ALL IN YOUR OWN
WORDS
For example:
• “Small breeds of dogs—those weigh 20 pounds or less at
maturity—reach mature body weight in nine to twelve
months. As puppies, they can be fed free-choice. When food
is readily available, most small-breed dogs will develop good
eating habits and not become overweight. However, if you
have other pets, you should probably feed your small-breed
dog by the portion control method.”
• Paraphrased:
– It is mentioned that small dogs should have good
eating habits so as to not get overweight and be
fed with portion control (“Feeding Your Puppy”).
<-IT IS STILL CITED!!!
You try!
• 1) Get yourself a toothbrush made especially
for canines or a clean piece of soft gauze to
wrap around your finger. Ask your vet for a
toothpaste made especially for canines or
make a paste out of baking soda and water
(“Pet Tips”).
Example #2
• 2) Be careful with this one…if you use the
EXACT SENTENCE WITH A STATISTIC, IT IS NOT
PARAPHRASED
• Puppies often play with their food when it is
first introduced, but they will quickly learn
what to do with it! By the time the pups are
completely weaned at seven to eight weeks
old, they should be eating their dry food
consistently (“Pet Tips”)
3) Quote blending
• Most of you are already awesome with this,
but let’s just remind ourselves what that looks
like
• Begins with your own words + quote+ citation
Example:
• Let’s say the quote is “everybody loves to
read” in a book written by John Doe.
– 1) It was obvious that “everybody loves to read”
(Doe).
– 2) If I wanted to make it a different tense or
change something, it looks like this:
• It was obvious that “everybody (loved) to read”(Doe).
4) A Few Reminders
• - you must react to your quotes (ie: YOU
CANNOT END A PARAGRAPH WITH A QUOTE)
• You can use “I” in this paper because it’s an ISearch- it’s based on your opinions or
reactions
5) Now. let’s get started on your
outlines
• Let’s look over the graphic organizers and
worksheets
• Start by splitting up your info into 5 (or more)
paragraphs, INCLUDING AN INTRO AND
CONCLUSION . Include bullet points with quotes,
sections, and reactions
• 1. Intro
• 2. Shelter Animals
• 3. Becoming an Activist
• 4. How to Save Pets
• 5. Conclusion
