  1. Summaries, Paraphrases, and Quotes How to use your text in a rhetorical analysis Source:

  2. What is a quote?

  3. Quotations must be identical to the original, using a narrow segment of the source. • They must match the source document word for word. • They must be attributed to the original author. Quotes

  4. What is a paraphrase?

  5. Paraphrasing involves putting a passage from source material into your own words. • A paraphrase must also be attributed to the original source. • Paraphrased material is usually shorter than the original passage, taking a segment of the source and condensing it. Paraphrases

  6. Paraphrase when you use someone else’s content but not his or her specific words. • Paraphrase when you want to simplify difficult material. • Your version should be almost entirely in your own words (use different diction and sentence structure). • Your version should accurately convey the content of the original passage. When to paraphrase:

  7. What is a summary?

  8. Summarizing involves putting the main idea(s) into your own words, including only the main point(s). • Once again, it is necessary to attribute summarized ideas to the original source. • Summaries are significantly shorter than the original and take a broad overview of the source material.

  10. MLA in Your Essay What to do when you use words that are not your own

  11. Introducing an Author • First time: Full name and brief background • Subsequent times: Last name • If no author, give the “Title”

  12. Quotations (and sometimes paraphrased items and summaries) need a signal phrase. • A signal phrase adds the name of the writer (“The author” also acceptable) with a verb that conveys your sense of the writer’s intent. • Examples: • Dewey argues, • The author writes, • Shelley contends, Signal Phrases

  13. If author is mentioned in the sentence, just give the page number at the end of the sentence. • Example: ,” (471). • If author is not mentioned in your sentence, give (LastNamepg#) or (“Title” pg#) at the end of the sentence. • Examples: ,” (Dewey 464). or ,” (“My Pedagogic Creed” 454).
