Our Using Quotation Marks lesson plan teaches students how and when to use quotation marks in their writing. Correctly using quotation marks is a skill that all readers and writers need in order to be successful in the academic setting. Without appropriate use of quotation marks, students cannot properly include and cite works, include dialogue in writing, or use quotes in expository papers. In this lesson, students are asked to insert quotations into given sentences and demonstrate their understanding by writing their own sentences using quotation marks.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify the purpose for using quotation marks and correctly use quotation marks and accompanying punctuation in writing.
