For this assignment, submit one quote in three separate styles.
First, identify a section of your source that you would like to integrate into the body of your analytical paper.
I have searched the Internet for a few moments and found a quote related to the issue of the unionization of the football players at Northwestern University. If I were writing an analytical essay on this issue, I would perhaps use this quote, an official response to this issue from the NCAA offices: “We strongly disagree with the notion that student-athletes are employees.”
So that’s the quote. Now, one way to integrate that quote into my essay might be to write something like this:
The NCAA released a statement saying, “We strongly disagree with the notion that student-athletes are employees.”
The NCAA released a statement: “We strongly disagree with the notion that student-athletes are employees.”
Now, another style of integration might be to blend the quote with my own wording:
The NCAA disagrees with the notion “that student-athletes are employees.” You see that, together, the two groups of words result in a complete sentence.
Or I might also restate the quote in my own words, but then cite the NCAA source parenthetically:
The NCAA refutes in the strongest possible terms the ruling that student athletes are employees of the university they attend (NCAA).
See what I’m doing here? I’m taking the same quote and integrating it with my own words in different ways. We encourage this so that quotes are not introduced in the same way over and over throughout an essay.
For now, this is all we’re asking, and I’d like to let you all give it a try. As you read through what some of what your classmates are doing with their quoted passages, you’ll get the hang of it, I think. (I haven’t modeled the block quote format for a passage that is more than four typed lines, but the book and the Purdue OWL site model that for you clearly.)
Make certain you consult the Purdue Owl website for concise style and formatting guidelines.
And if you are having trouble accessing the Purdue OWL, leave ANGEL and just do a simple GOOGLE search of Purdue OWL. Then click on the link connecting you to the “MLA Formatting and Style Guide.” Then look down the menu along the left margin and click on “MLA Formatting Quotations.” It will be eye-opening, and you will only need a few minutes, I think, to see what they’re suggesting there.
Then just paste your quoted passage and your three different ways of integrating that quote into the discussion and see what your classmates have done as well.
Because of the difficulty some of us are having with the Purdue site (it is an unsecured site, and Angel is reluctant to connect some of you, I think), we will probably let this discussion run through Friday.
Sound good? Now, give this a try as soon as you have found an interesting quote to experiment with for a while.
