    For this exercise, I’d like you to read five stories from the AP newswire, paying particular attention to the quotes included. Then, fill out the following observations about them so we can discuss how writers enter into and use quotes.
    The questions
    How soon did quotes appear in the articles?
    How many quotes were included in each story?
    How did the articles enter into and move out of the quote? (Pay attention to the phrasing and copy down a typical example by jotting the lead in phrase and the beginning of the quote.)
    Copy down the best quote you read.
    What made this quote better than other quotes you saw?
    Were any of the quotes not so great? What made them not so good?

    When I ask you to type an assignment and hand it in to me, I will very often require you to put it in MLA format.
    Such a format is a standard expectation in the English department here at Central High School and will apply in most colleges and universities. Requiring you to follow such a format may seem nit-picky, but it is an area where attention to detail counts, and learning to pay attention to such things is an essential skill you will need whether you pursue a college education or not.
