Come to class
with four quotations from at least three secondary sources (in other words, you may take two quotations from the same source) you plan to use
for your research project. Each quotation must be properly formatted
and cited. Note: these must be secondary sources. Quotations from primary sources are not approriate for this assignment.
At least three of these quotations must be Type 1. The fourth may be Type 1 or Type 2.
quotation, explain how you plan to use the quotation in your essay. If it is Type 1 quotation, start by explaining whether you plan to extend, apply, logically
rebut, or rebut based on evidence. Then go into a little more detail
(three or four sentences should be sufficient) in each case: what
specific point (not your thesis) you think it helps you support,
how you can apply it in a new way, where the logical flaw is, or
what evidence you think the author ignores or misinterprets. If it is a Type 2 quotation, explain why the information it presents is useful to your argument.
