If you are writing an essay about a book, and you copy into your essay a phrase or sentence from the book, that is a direct quotation. Quotation marks must ALWAYS surround a direct quote.
Ex: Lauren Tarshis writes that, your tonuge is pretty lost without your nose (18).Notice how the period goes OUTSIDE of the quotationWhat is the difference continuedParaphrase: is to put something written or spoken in someone else words into your own. A paraphrase is NOT surrounded by quotation marks because it is not a direct quote. But it MUST still be cited because while you may have reworded the information you did NOT think of it.Ex: Lauren Tarshis explains that our sense of taste is very dependent on our sense of smell (18).We will read over the sheet togetherThings to note:The period ALWAYS goes after the citationThe authors name must be included at some point whether in the text or in the citationMUST have page numbers
