Summer Reading Quotation Pages (one quote per page) – 90 points total for all pages
1. Select ten quotes (2 points each page for a total of 20 points) from your summer
reading book that capture the essence of the book’s main idea, characters, theme, motif,
etc. The quotes should be a representation of the entire book. Document the page
number from which the quote came and the name of the character or narrator who said it.
For example:
August says, “Stories have to be told or they die, and when they die, we can’t remember
who we are why we’re here” (Kidd 107).
2. Write a brief paragraph explaining the quote’s significance to the book (3 points each
page for a total of 30 points).
For example:
Ms. Kidd is referring to our human need for acceptance and belonging. Stories
give us this by recording characters and experiences that anyone can identify with. This
gives us an escape from loneliness. No matter what one’s situation is, a story can be
found to let one know they are not alone; someone else has been there too.
3. Write a brief paragraph as to the quote’s significance to you (3 points each page
for a total of 30 points).
For example:
Ms. Kidd’s quote is significant to me because I escape into stories. There is a story
out there to fit my every mood, wish, and desire. There is no way to experience all the
things I’d like to, so I read books. Loving books, makes me a natural storyteller. If I don’t
have my own to tell, I’ll tell someone else’s story.
3. Create a visual (picture or symbol) for each selected quote (1 point each page for a total
of 10 points). You may
draw or copy and paste pictures from the Internet.
Works Cited Page: The last page of your quotation portfolio must have the following MLA
citation format for the book that you read – 5 points
