note taking for longer selections. Once you have determined the
primary themes of the novel or work being studied, start looking for
quotes that represent that theme. Then, using the sample from Romeo

Write an entire quote or the first two lines of a quote on the left side of the page. Include act, scene and line numbers. Include a slash ( / ) to indicate where a line of text ends in the original. Use ellipses (...) to indicate where text has been removed. See sample above.
Only use quotes that are 2-3 lines long. There is no room for block quotes in upcoming essays.
Write who is speaking and in what
context on the right. Also
provide a short explanation showing why this quote is significant. Pretend
