ENC 1102 VC Online Quote Sandwich Worksheet InstructionsInstructions: Imagine that you are writing a literary analysis paper about “A Rose for Emily” by William Faulkner. You have already written your thesis statement for the paper.Thesis statement: Secrets are a major theme in William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily.” You have also planned out your body paragraphs. In one body paragraph, you need to incorporate your scholarly source: Laura J. Getty’s “On Faulkner’s ‘A Rose for Emily’” (M4S3). You have already written your topic sentence for this paragraph.Topic Sentence: Even the title of the short story, “A Rose for Emily,” suggests the presence of secrets. Now, select a quotation from Getty’s article (M4S3) specifically about the connection between the rose in the title of the short story and the idea of secrets to use in this body paragraph. Finally, create a quote sandwich following the guidelines below. Topic Sentence: Select a quote from Getty’s article that supports this already-developed topic sentence: Even the title of the short story, “A Rose for Emily,” suggests the presence of secrets. Top of the Quote Sandwich Introduce Getty and give her credentials so that readers trust her as an expert (Google her if you need to). Tell your audience what it is Getty is writing about.Incorporate a signal verb or phrase followed by a comma.Middle of the Sandwich Copy and paste your selected quote from Getty and put quotation marks around it.Add an in-text citation at the end of the quote that includes the page number where you found the quote.Bottom of the Sandwich:Explain what the quote means in your own words.Tip: Do not say “this means” or “the article/source/evidence says.” Instead, use the author’s last name. If you are not sure how to do so, see the two examples below:”What so-in-so is saying is that…” – Replace so-in-so with the author’s last name. “In other words, what so-in-so is suggesting is that…” – Replace so-in-so with the author’s last name.” If you do not know who the author is, use the publisher.Why do we avoid “the article/source/evidence says”? When you refer to the source or article, you are providing metacommentary and breaking the frame of the reader. They are not supposed to be jostled out of your argument with a sudden source reference. You already signaled to them that you were referencing a source by introducing the author in a much more subtle way in the top of the sandwich.Write a sentence that explicitly connects what Laura J. Getty says about secrets to your thesis statement (Secrets are a major theme in William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily.”)Fill in the blanks below to create your quote sandwich and submit this worksheet for your assignment (M4A3).Topic sentence: Even the title of the short story, “A Rose for Emily,” suggests the presence of secrets.Top of sandwich: ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Middle of sandwich: __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Bottom of the sandwich: __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
