An In-Text Citation is used as a direct quote, story, fact, statistic that you are referencing within your essay. In-Text Citations always refer to a source that is referenced in your Works Cited page. For Example:

One author claims that “no one is concerned with this issue, you dork” (Jones, 45).

Why do we use quotes textual evidence l.jpg
Why do we use quotes/textual evidence?

  • Grounds the argument (not “I believe” argument).

  • Provides “neutral ground” to show your reader how you’ve interpreted the author – shows your reasoning.

  • Gives you evidence to analyze.

  • Allows you to address the author without summarizing.

  • Demonstrates your analysis skills.

  • Tell the reader the author and title

Which quotes to use or avoid

  • Quotes have to be chosen purposefully that support your argument.

  • Pick quotes that further your point, not restate your argument.

  • Take a risk: choose a quote that may be complicated, one that you may disagree with, or interpreted in an unusual way.

  • Social historian Richard Sennett names the tendency to come to terms with difficult experiences a "purification process" whereby "threatening or painful dissonances are warded off to preserve intact a clear and articulated image of oneself and one’s place in the world" (11). Sennett argues that humans need to “purify” there past trauma through the way they project themselves to the outside world.

Remember the importance of transitions l.jpg
Remember the importance of Transitions

  • Transitions are like gears in a car, they help you shift from one paragraph to the next.

  • Here is a list of common transition words: And, in addition to, furthermore, moreover, besides, than, too, also, both-and, another, equally important, first, second, etc


Slide12 l.jpg

When transitioning from one paragraph to the next read the last sentence of paragraph 1, add your transition, and connect it to the topic sentence in paragraph 2.

EXAMPLE:

Paragraph 1: The football incident is important in the story because it demonstrates the major conflict between Lucy and Charlie Brown.

Transition: Like the conflict about the football, another literary device that is important in Peanut’s cartoon is the refrain of “Good Grief.”

Paragraph 2: One of the famous lines uttered by Charlie Brown is the phrase “Good Grief.” Whenever he is frustrated or feels he is cheated in life he utters “Good Grief.”


Summary l.jpg
Summary last sentence of paragraph 1, add your transition, and connect it to the topic sentence in paragraph 2.

Set-Up the Quote: What is the context of the quote?

Evidence: The Quote Itself.

Analysis: How does the quote connect to your thesis?

Transition: Connecting one paragraph to the next.
