  1. Quotations and Underlining But how do you know when to use quotation marks and when to use underlining/italics? Titles of Works must be either underlined/italicized or you must put quotes around the title.

  2. It’s easy. Just use the thought process below. • If it takes a LONG time to create the work then use a LONG line underneath it. • Books: The Great Gatsby • Newspaper: The New York Times • Magazine: People • Movie: Bourne Identity • Sculpture: The Thinker • Ship, Train, or Plane: The Santa Maria • Play: Death of a Salesman • Album/CD: Blazing Glory

  3. Example: Did you see the movie Twilight? • (It took a LONG time to create the movie…so use a LONG line. • Sometimes Italics (slanted words) are used instead of the LONG line: Twilight

  4. Italics can be used instead of underlining • Books: The Great Gatsby • Newspaper: The New York Times • Magazine: People • Movie:Bourne Identity • Sculpture: The Thinker • Ship, Train, or Plane: The Santa Maria • Play:Death of a Salesman • Album/CD: Blazing Glory

  5. Now, if it is a short work……takes a shorter time to create it….use short marks to punctuate (“ “) • Have you read the chapter called “Confessions” in the book Twilight? • See, the chapter took a shorter period of time to write than the book…so use short marks (quotations)

  6. Another Way to Look at it : …….if it can becontained inside of something elsethen it should be contained inside of quotation marks. • Chapter : “Vanishing Glass” contained in book The Sorcerer’s Stone .…so contain it in quotes • Song: “You Give Love a Bad Name” contained on an album or CD Slippery When Wet….so contain it in quotes • Article: “Saban’s Tide” contained in ESPNmagazine. Contain it in quotes, but underline or italicize the longer work. • Episode of TV show: “Grandma’s Dead” contained in the series That 70’s Show

  7. Now you Try it!!! Decide if it gets quotes or underline/italics • Poem: The Road Not Taken Answer: “The Road Not Taken” Reasoning: It gets short marks (quotation) ….it is a short work and can be contained inside a longer work…like a book
