Learning Objective: This assignment is designed to assist you in integrating sources into your essay. Through the process of integrating primary and secondary sources into your essay, readers will be able to see how these sources enhance and support the development of your ideas.
Instructions: Select the following types of quotes from both your primary and secondary sources–two (2) types of quotes from your primary source (the story itself), one (1) type from each of your secondary sources, and one (1) type of your choice from the source of your choice–and integrate them into your essay to support the ideas developed in your three body paragraphs, totaling six quotes, two (2) per each body paragraph (DO NOT CITE QUOTES IN YOUR INTRODUCTORY PARAGRAPH OR YOUR CONCLUDING PARAGRAPH):
1. Short direct quote (4 typed lines or less written exactly from the source; enclosed within quotation marks, along with parenthetical citation) See Chapter 56, pages 598-610 of The Bedford Handbook, 10th ed.
2. Short indirect quote (4 typed lines or less paraphrased in your own words, along with parenthetical citation) See Chapter 54, page 580-582; pages 577-583 of The Bedford Handbook, 10th ed.
3. Long quote (5 typed lines or more indented one-half inch from the left margin, along with parenthetical citation; do not enclose within quotation marks, but maintain any quotation marks cited within quote) See Chapter 55, page 589 of The Bedford Handbook 10th ed.
4. Quote within a quote (uses single quotation marks inside double quotation marks, along with parenthetical citation) See Chapter 37, page 441 of The Bedford Handbook. 10th ed.

Mark clear boundaries to indicate your words from the words of your sources by introducing your quotes with signal phrases. If it is clear how your quoted citations connect to your ideas and where they begin and end, you may consider omitting the signal phrase and placing the author’s last name in the parenthetical citation (see Chapter 55, pages 590-593).
