Integrating Quotations

Sometimes it takes some practice for students to learn how to integrate quotations into their own sentences successfully. One way to help them acquire this skill is to break a class into groups and give each group the same quotation.  Groups should then integrate all or part of the quotation into a new sentence—the more outlandish the sentence, the better. The group with the craziest sentence and the smoothest integration wins. Review the material on integrating quotations in the handbook to help students with this exercise.
