This mini-lesson introduces students to blending quotations using the TCS method. This method asks students to integrate quotations into their own sentences with a transition that smoothly moves the reader into the evidence and then also includes the context/ speaker for the quotation to help the reader recall the quotation from the original text. 

I use this method with my students throughout the year to guide their revisions. My students bring their drafts to class, and they take turns labeling the "TCS" for each quotation. 

This method is very approachable and an essential tool for the Writer's Toolbox.
