Quotations- evidence to support arguments
Quotations are essential to a good essay. They are the evidence that support the ideas you are presenting; they are like soldiers going into battle to fight for their side of an argument. Look to find the most powerful and compelling quotations to support your thesis, and undermine counter arguments.
The quotation always requires three aspects, normally in three distinct sentences. These three phases are:
The first phase establishes the context for the quotation and makes the point for why you are using it. For example: “The following quotation shows that industrial strength was a contributing factor to the North winning the civil war:”
The second phase is the quotation itself
The third phase is your own comment on the quotation where you iterate how this quotation proves the point that you made initially.
Use quotations regularly; every paragraph of the ‘body’ of the essay should be littered with quotations. However be careful not to make quotations longer than your own writing, attempt to instead work them into your own writing, never letting them dominate the word allowance more than necessary-certainly no more than a quarter of the text.
This following is another tip for essay based exams:
Find out how important quotations are for your essay mark scheme. Sometimes they are essential, and you will get marked on having a certain amount of them in your essay, other times they are more like the icing on the cake.
Whatever the case when choosing quotations be super savvy by choosing ones which can be used to make a variety of points, for example pick a quotation which reveals a few themes, as well as the use of language, and so on. This way you can dramatically cut down the amount of quotations you need to learn, whilst always having quotations to use in the exam.
