Quote Weaving

Description:

After viewing this video, students will be able to compose phrases that provide context and dialog verbs that introduce a quotation in a body paragraph.

Quote weaving is all about context. It’s easy enough for you to find evidence for you to support an argument, and to explain the connections between your evidence and argument. These are the basic skills of outlining an essay: identifying your arguments, supplying appropriate evidence, and explaining how the two relate. To make this process go more smoothly, skilled writers use quote weaving so their readers don’t get lost jumping from one piece of evidence to another.
