Expository Writing

The Quote Page for the Outside Reading

Compose a thesis and choose five quotes from the book that support it.

In other words, think about one theme the book you read covers and write up a clear, succinct thesis statement. Then, find five direct quotes from the reading that illustrate and support this statement.

A brief paragraph explanation must accompany each quote. The purpose of this is to examine the writing thematically. (20 pts)
