Example 3: Understanding the History Well and Using Quotations Effectively (Not Just Copying a Bunch of Quotations) Ė 1301 Student (Grade Averages as an A-)

This person used quotations, and thatís fine in this course. (Caution: Typing anotherís words without quotation marks is not fine.) The person did two things that make the use of quotation earn high points:

Had one error in using a quotation (CL 3) and thatís very unsafe if you use quotations. Had two minor meaning errors.

Additional Caution: What fails is just writing a bunch of quotations one after another with no way for a reader to guess why you chose them.
