  • 10/17 pt. II create a simple quote

    After you read the material from pt. I, please do the following today and post your result.

    I came across a rather unexceptional article and am providing it to you for you to create a quote from. You do not have to read this article, called “Why Movies Will Never Replace Books.” (see Files)

    The author’s name is provided. I would like you to create a quote out of the yellow highlighted sentence only. Since the article has no page number, you have to use the writer’s last name in the reference, the parenthetical part. That means you have to omit his name from the tag, but you need the tag, the signal phrase to introduce the quote.

    Based on the document I posted earlier today, just make one quote using the first style–the tag before the quote, followed by the reference. PLEASE DO THIS NOW AND POST THE RESULT.

    1) John Scherber says, “The very basic limitation of books, the inability to show you everything in the story in all its detail, is also its
    principal strength” (Scherber).

    You cannot have the author’s name in both places in one quote. That is why I said to use words like “writer,” “author,” “reviewer,” “observer.”

    1) in the article Why Movies Will Never Replace Books, By John Scherber he says, “The very basic limitation of books, the inability to show you everything in the story in all its detail, is also its
    principal strength”.

    You are missing the parenthetical reference and the capitalization in your tag is all off.

    Please look at the document again about how to quote.
    Also, published article titles need quotation marks.

    John Scherber states “The very basic limitation of books, the inability to show you everything in the story in all its detail, is also its principal Strength.”

    You need a comma after “states” to separate the tag from the quote and you MUST have a parenthetical reference.

    Please try again.

    Good work! Keep in mind that when your research shows several different writers, you should use “One author” rather than “The.”

    One writer states “The very basic limitation of books, the inability to show you everything in the story in all its detail, is also its principal strength” (Scherber).

    Just add a comma after the tag and you are good!
