Embedding Quotations in Writing – Teaching How to Embed Quotes


Teach your students how to properly embed, cite, and explain quotes in their writing with this comprehensive teaching lesson! Students will learn four different ways to embed quotes in their writing. This lesson includes ample activities for practice, and students can apply the skill all year long.

This resource includes:

  • A 57-slide EDITABLE PowerPoint presentation that directly instructs students how to properly embed quotes.
  • An individual or group brainstorming activity to come up with other words to use instead of said.
